Show notes

So, this is it, Mike Raine’s last episode as host of the Canadian Musician Podcast. Mike kicks off the show by introducing you to Manus Hopkins, one of the editors at Canadian Musician who you’ll be hearing on the podcast from now on. And then, Mike shares his last interview for the Canadian Musician Podcast, and it’s a prime example of the type of conversation he’s loved having here. It is with Menno Versteeg, founder of Royal Mountain Records and former frontman of the band Hollerado. Menno – in his typical funny, honest, and self-deprecating way – tells the story of Royal Mountain’s creation and how it almost accidently grew into Canada’s best indie label, with an all-star roster that includes Alvvays, Mac Demarco, Orville Peck, PUP, and so many more outstanding artists.
