    WR604: Dog Dad Posse

    WR604: Dog Dad Posse

    While Manitoba is always the focus of the podcast, I also like to branch out and talk to members of what I call the “Manitoba diaspora” — artists from the prairies plying their trade elsewhere.Dog Dad Posse (a/k/a Sammy D) is one such artist. We talked about the journey that took him from Winnipeg singer-songwriter to exploring hip-hop — first in BC, now in Toronto — as well as his love for prairie rap, dogs, and so much more.

Midnight Review Presents ,

A glimpse into the Winnipeg music scene...

Hard focus on the bands and musicians that make up the Winnipeg music scene.

Also, Sam is one of the few people left in this world, that is genuinely interested in your physical album.

Best archive of the Winnipeg music scene

This is a great music podcast! I’ve learned so much about our great music scene by listening to countless episodes. He’s got a great setup and variety of all genres which I think is pretty cool. There’s something for every music lover.
