Operation Manatee #262 – This Again?

Someone must have reminded Mother Nature it was winter still because the last few days have been pretty darn frosty. What do you think is worse; is it a dry, freezing cold? Is it the wind that brutalizes the prairies? Is the seeping chill of a wet BC cold even worse? Either way, let’s notContinue reading “Operation Manatee #262 – This Again?”

Special Show Announcement! What Planet Is This?! Show #291

Hi all! Chris here. I just wanted to let you know that I’m doing a special fill-in show today from 4:00 to 6:00!

I’ve just recently completed (slapped together) 2018’s Operation Manatee Music Prize Long List, so you can likely expect a brief review of that, along with a spattering of other underground goodies. So, pour yourself something nice, putContinue reading “Tape One To Armenia #13”


Life has a way of making you postpone things you like doing, then Christmas came. Ah well, better late than never? Because life’s been a little extra crazy this year, I didn’t get around to paring down the long list as much as I would have liked. As usual, I re-listened to all the albums/EPsContinue reading “OPERATION MANATEE MUSIC PRIZE 2018: THE LONG LIST”
