After over thirteen years of grooming an eclectic music selection that attracts audiophiles from across the city, our music manager Michael Wolch has been tapped to host the morning radio show on Classic 107.
Our new music manager, Andy Morton, assures a smooth transition. With over twenty-five years in the music business (the Folk Festival, Musiplex, Into the Music, HMV), Andy is poised to make McNally Robinson's music department -- not to mention our great selection of movies on DVD and Blu-Ray -- all you have come to expect, while also adding the flavours of his own unique tastes to an ever-expanding offering of music on CD and vinyl.
So farewell, Michael; you will be missed. And Andy, welcome to the family!

In partnership with Winnipeg's Classic 107, we're proud to present our Jazz CD of the Month...
Gregory Porter's Liquid Spirit
Liquid Spirit marks Gregory Porter's Blue Note Records debut, which arrives on the heels of two critically acclaimed indie label albums that quickly propelled Porter to the upper echelon of contemporary male Jazz singers and earned him two Grammy nominations.
Don Was, President of Blue Note, encouraged Porter to stay true to his artistic vision. "I firmly consider myself a Jazz singer but I enjoy Blues, Southern Soul, and Gospel," Porter says, "Those elements make their way inside my music. And I've always heard them in Jazz."
Look for our Jazz CD of the Month display in the Music section of our Grant Park store to pick up a copy!Categories: Music, Winnipeg, Classic107
