Welcome to West End Dumplings - The Radio Edition, the show about Manitoba history !

After more than two years, I've decided to take a break from the radio show. Thanks to all my co-hosts and guests during that time.

You can still hear "best of" episodes Saturday mornings at 7:00 am on 101.5 UMFM, or listen live at UMFM.com. Below are the podcasts for most of the shows !


Join me, Christian Cassidy, as I take a look at the week ahead in Manitoba history. It's a sneak peek at some of what you will see daily at my blogs This Was Manitoba and West End Dumplings. I'll also have guests that will talk about upcoming events and projects with a heritage / architecture / storytelling theme. There will also be a few musical numbers to keep your toes tapping !

Feel free to contact me with feedback about the show or check out the Facebook page.
