The evenings are getting longer and the pack ice is starting to flow around the Island of Newfoundland, It won't be long now before ice bergs amble along the Labrador current while paying visit to the beautiful town of Twillingate. Some of which you can see out the windows of The Captains Pub while Mike sings you a song and tells you a story. Mikes third season is just about to start and his new show (and upcoming album) is titled "Tall Tales and Heavy Gales".
