The Hockey Show - Episode 181

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with another outstanding guest who is a major hockey fan! As you know, The Hockey Show has been a big fan of Jared Keeso since his days of playing Don Cherry in the CBC-produced biopic in Winnipeg and surrounding regions, and we were one of the first places to give Letterkenny Problems a push. The man that appears with Jared on the shorts and in the new CraveTV series Letterkenny is Nathan Dales, and we're going to learn all about the Calgary-born actor on tonight's show!

The man to the left, playing his iconic Letterkenny character Daryl, is Nathan Dales! Nathan has found success on the stage, the small screen, the silver screen, and the internet screen through his various roles on a number of high-profile TV shows. He'll be a part of the upcoming Goon: Last of the Enforcers movie, and he has a passion for all things Calgary Flames. Tonight, we'll meet Nathan, talk to him about his career in acting, his love of the Calgary Flames, a project that found Margaret Atwood as a fan, and how he met Jared Keeso with whom he's done a number of YouTube shorts!

If there's enough time left over, we'll get Nathan's thoughts on the Canadian NHL playoff picture, trading Jarome Iginla for basically nothing at this point, what the Flames need to do to find the playoffs, and the outdoor games that were announced. Tonight's show should be a good one with the always-entertaining Nathan Dales, so make sure you huddle around the old transistor radio and catch the show!

Once again, The Hockey Show is proud, honoured, humbled, and privileged to be able to bring to you one of Canada's movers-and-shakers when it comes to the TV landscape in this country. In the last few weeks, we've featured CWHL Brampton Thunder players Fielding Montgomery and Candice Styles, Goon costume designer Heather Neale, and Friend of the Show Jared Keeso who recently (finally?) appeared with Sportsnet's Jeff Marek on his podcast. We're not your average hockey radio show that talks about same problems every week that the Jets and Moose have. We have fun, we have incredible guests, and we talk all realms of hockey! Forget that other AM sports radio station's garbage programming, and join the new radio revolution on UMFM called The Hockey Show!

Nathan will be in Vancouver tonight so he'll be doing the interview via the phone meaning the phones will be closed for calls! However, make sure you tune your radio dial in the Winnipeg region to 101.5 on your FM dial or listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter. You can also post some stuff to Facebook if you use the "Like" feature, and I always have crazy stuff posted there that doesn't make it to the blog or show. Letterkenny's other half invades the program tonight as we welcome Nathan Dales to The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
