The Hockey Show - Episode 136

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with a fun show. Yes, the Jets were eliminated in four-straight games last night and we will talk about that, but tonight will bring together the worlds of hockey and music! There have been lots of hockey-related parodies of hit songs over the years, and Beans and I will look at a handful of them tonight as we dive into the hockey parodies!

While Weird Al Yankovic won't appear on tonight's list, he's probably the greatest artist when it comes to parodying hit songs. I will say there are some duds in the hockey parody world and we'll look at a few of these, but we'll focus on some of the better ones as we look at hockey's greatest parodies. We'll feature songs about the Jets, the Flames, the Canucks, the Oilers, the Senators, the Leafs, the Red Wings, and a couple other that don't really fit into a team song category. There are some excellent parodies in the groupings we have, and we'll debate the merits of each of the songs we feature on The Hockey Show tonight!

The phones will be open tonight so you can weigh in on the parodies as well, so call us at 204-269-UMFM (204-269-8636) and we'll put you on the air! Of course, we will be live on 101.5 UMFM on your radio dial in the Winnipeg region or you can listen live between 5:30pm and 6:30pm CT on your web-enabled device at the UMFM webpage! You can tweet me anytime you like 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. It's an all-music show tonight as we look at hockey parodies on The Hockey Show!
