The Hockey Show - Episode 188

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back tonight with a guest who I looked up to for a long time. It seems we have some awesome local deejays here in Manitoba as we've already had Brody Jackson and Samantha Stevens on from QX104FM to talk about their hockey tie-ins (Brody is the in-game host for the Jets while Samantha was learning hockey at a local Canlan hockey class!). Today, we have the man who is in charge of the Winnipeg chapter of Canada's largest street hockey tournament in the Play On! 4-on-4 street hockey tournament who was also part of one of Manitoba's best radio morning shows in recent history!

Tonight, we meet Mr. Tom McGouran who is getting the Winnipeg portion of Play On! onto the streets at the University of Manitoba! Tom has been on-and-off radio across Canada for a few decades now, but he was part of 92CITI-FM's fantastic morning show in the 1990s with co-cohort Joe Aiello! Tom and Joe were the originators of some of Winnipeg's best radio, and they were my choice for morning radio when I was getting ready for school and university in the morning! We'll talk with Tom about his involvement with Play On!, his radio career, who his picks are for Round Two in the NHL, and the Brandon Wheat Kings as Tom's a huge hockey fan!

Play On! is the ultimate summer street hockey experience, and you should be a part of it! It doesn't matter what your skill level or age is because Play On! offers recreational and competitive street hockey tournament divisions for every weekend warrior! The Play On! event will tour across Canada this summer, so make sure you get registered for some exciting and fun street hockey action in your city! All details as to when Play On! will be in your city and what the costs are for your skill and age level can be found on the Play On! website! See you out there!

The phones are closed tonight with Tom joining us in-studio! To hear this great interview, 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. We might also try to get some Facebook Live footage of Tom in-studio up there as well! We talk to Play On! Winnipeg organizer and Winnipeg radio legend Tom McGouran tonight on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM!
