The Midnight Poutine Podcast - MTL Love Letter
It's a bittersweet podcast this week, there's no way around it. After 260 plus episodes, I'm signing off. It's been a good 6 year run and we've been through a lot since the show's earliest days. Since this is likely my last chance to say a proper goodbye, let me just say how much I've enjoyed watching Montreal's various music scenes grow and evolve during my time here and how fortunate I feel to have been part of a show that I hope, in some minuscule way, has helped contribute to this city's vibrant culture. This episode is my attempt to reflect on that experience musically, and to say thank you to all the artists, producers, labels and other kind folks who've made this show possible. Thanks to anyone who's ever listened to the show, recommended it to their friends, or cared enough to send us a comment.
Luckily, I leave the show in excellent hands. Amie, Theo, Gabby, and eventually Greg will be back week after week to keep serving up heaping dishes of this city's wonderful music. And I for one will be listening.
Don't worry, it's not all slow songs and teary eyes. Help me say goodbye without crying on this week's Midnight Poutine Podcast:
