The Hockey Show - Episode 344

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced radio show that strictly talks hockey, is back tonight with a very special interview as I've been working to try and pin down a time on our guest's schedule for some time. While he'll deny it, he's a mover and shaker when it comes to doing great things in both the hockey world and the charitable world, and his intertwining of those two worlds are why Beans and I are honoured to welcome him to the show. This won't be your normal NHL Playoffs show - we may still get some chatter in - as tonight's guest is all about doing amazing things thanks to hockey!

Beans and I are proud, honoured, privileged, and humbled to welcome Ryan Baillie, the Executive Director of Hockey Helps The Homeless, to The Hockey Show tonight as we learn about everything this amazing charitable group does in helping people in cities across Canada through hockey! We'll talk to Ryan about how he got started with Hockey Helps The Homeless, the work they do and why it's so important, how people like you can help out, and possibly a major announcement for the city of Winnipeg that Ryan may have. It should be a great chat about an incredible organization that does so much good work in the cities they're currently in, and we feel pretty lucky to have Ryan on the show tonight. Of course, we may have to grill him a little on the Toronto Maple Leafs getting bounced from the playoffs as Hockey Helps The Homeless is based north of Toronto, but I'm sure he can return the favour with a few zings about the Jets! All in all, we're excited to talk to Ryan tonight, and we hope you'll join us on 101.5 UMFM at 5:30pm CT!

Speaking of joining us, the new UMFM website's online streaming player is pretty awesome. If you're using an Apple device, the player doesn't seem to like Safari yet, but we highly recommend you use the TuneIn app found on the App Store or perhaps another browser. If you do use the TuneIn app, you won't be disappointed. It's a solid app.

Having lost faith in Facebook, I spend far less time on that site for good reasons. In saying that, you can still email all show questions and comments to! Tweet me anytime with questions you may have by hitting me up at @TeebzHBIC on Twitter! We're here to listen to you, so make your voice heard!

Tonight, Teebz and Beans chat with Ryan Baillie, Executive Director of Hockey Helps The Homeless, about his work, the work of the organization, some of their major achievements, the people they help, perhaps some news about Winnipeg(?), and much more only on The Hockey Show found exclusively on 101.5 UMFM, on the UMFM app, on the web stream!
