Started back in 2015 originally as a blog, the Winnipeg Music Project(hosted by Ashley Bieniarz) is now a local campus radio show on UMFM and podcast, dedicated to supporting the local music scene and its talented musicians. Each week spends an hour interviewing emerging or establishing local music-makers from a variety of different genres to learn about each artist’s unique connection to music and their business approach to the industry.

Tune in every Tuesday at 2:00pm (CST/CDT) on 101.5 FM if you live in the Winnipeg area or stream on the CJUM UMFM website for the premiere of each episode. If you wanna hear more, you can check out all archived episodes in our personal archive. (Spotify, iTunes and Google play currently being updated. Stay Tuned)
