204 FM with Leaf Rapids

204 FM

204FM, a new radio series by One Trunk Theatre

In the early 1900s unfortunate and irreversible mistakes bind Hermes, the god of travel, in gold. Now a statue, Hermes is passed from one continent to the next bringing bad luck and a feeling of "stuckness" everywhere he goes. World powers unite and decide the only solution is to send him as far away as possible to a place that no one cares about... a place in the middle of nowhere... Winnipeg, Manitoba. For over a century Hermes has perched atop the Legislature and we call him the golden boy, a statue reeking a feeling a apathy through the city and not letting anyone leave, even after they have passed away. Enter our heroes, regular every day Winnipeggers who feel stuck but are sucked into an adventure exploring the city and meeting an infamous cast of characters (from Stephen Juba to the Grey Nuns and from Nellie McClung to Burton Cummings) who give them a new perspective. A hilarious roller coaster ride through time, winters, socials, mysteries and many vacant floors of the Downtown Bay, 204FM is a uniquely Winnipeg buffet, created by top Winnipeg comedians and theatre artists for the citizens of our one great city.

Written by: Gwendolyn Collins, RobYn Slade, Toby Hughes, Ross McMillan and William Jordan.

Leaf Rapids

Keri and Devin Latimer’s latest musical project, “Leaf Rapids” is inspired by the wildly isolated nature of Manitoba, Canada. The lyrical themes explore the inner workings of people left too long inside their cabins in the dead of winter, and where spring explodes. Think of a warm layered blanket of bass, guitars and drums, and add the voice of Keri Latimer and the haunting sound of the Theremin.

Recently signed to Black Hen Music, Leaf Rapids just finished recording a dozen songs in Nashville, TN with producer/musician Steve Dawson (who’s accolades include a long list of Awards and nominations, including Juno’s, WCMA’s and CFMA’s), engineer Bil Vorndick (Ralph Stanley, Alison Krauss, Béla Fleck) and drummer Gary Craig (Bruce Cockburn, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings).
