The Hockey Show - Episode 209

The Hockey Show, Canada's only campus-produced hockey radio show, is back to kick off YEAR 5 of the greatest non-affiliated hockey show on the planet! As we do with any birthday, we are going to have some fun, give away some cool stuff, and chat some hockey on tonight's show. Why? Because we appreciate each and every one of you who have been listening all this time. To show our appreciation, we're giving you the presents! How cool is that?

We have some autographed stuff to give away. We have a few books for your reading consumption. There are some clothing items that can be won. And there are chances for you to jump into the hockey chatter with your phone calls! Among the hockey topics we'll discuss will be the white pucks used by the Florida Panthers, Sergei Mozyakin breaking the KHL record for career goals a week or so ago, Brandon Reid and the Aalborg Pirates kicking off their season against the Odense Bulldogs on Friday, and the Manitoba Bisons women's team heading to Regina for the Mandi Schwartz Tournament and what TJ and Teebz saw from the team in their preseason games against the Winnipeg Avros. We're giving away a bunch of stuff tonight while we chat hockey, so make sure you tune in and listen for your chance to win!

I can already hear a large portion of those reading this preview saying, "I don't get your radio station in my neighbourhood." Believe me, we're very cognizant of how far we reach at UMFM, so we're pushing forward into the digital age like a charging bull in order to give you more options and better options for listening to The Hockey Show and all the other great UMFM programming. Ladies and gentlemen, there's an app for that.

If you're a proud owner of an iPad, iPod, or iPhone and want to listen to The Hockey Show, you had to go to UMFM's website and listen via the stream and it was a pain in the butt because it only played a couple of ways and tuning in was a big hassle. I get it. I've been there. That's why UMFM went ahead and made an awesome new app for you to download that will allow you to listen to UMFM with ease! Just follow this link on your iDevice and get the UMFM app! It's never been easier to tune into The Hockey Show, and we're giving away prizes tonight so you can win as well!

If you're an Android user, we've had the app out for a few weeks already so you should already have it on your phone or tablet. You do have it, right? What do you mean you don't have it? Why not? Look, get yourself on the right path by following this link and getting the Android app!

As a small hint, there will be a prize available for someone who has downloaded the app as there will be a question posed that relates to the app, so you'd be wise to download the UMFM app and get familiar with it prior to the show. It'll also be valuable for listening to CIS sports, a ton of great shows and music, and some fun talk shows outside our little hour!

Email all show questions and comments to! 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.

Tonight, we're cleaning out the prize closet and chatting about white pucks, Russian goals, Danish starts, and women's hockey on The Hockey Show only on 101.5 UMFM and on the UMFM app!
