Double the pleasure, double the fun

This week, I've hosted twice! Lucky me, draggin' me arse outta bed at 5-something in the AM. Actually, aside from the whole leaving-my-comfy-warm-bed-and-being-ripped-out-of-a-lovely-slumber bit, I really enjoy the morning show circuit.

I had a bit of a hiatus, so it was great to be back. I hosted in my regular bi-weekly slot, then filled in today (November 21) for an ailing Crystal who is currently feeling under the weather.

When I build my playlists, I try to have kind of a loose theme in mind. Sometimes, my theme is just.. random music! Monday, I had couple of sets dedicated to regions. The first was an ode to my homeland, the Maritimes, and more specifically Prince Edward Island, which will always be embedded in my heart. The second was to my current home, the lovely prairies that I've become enchanted with since moving here seven years (!!!) ago.

Today, I just attempted to have series of pretty high energy songs, followed by some chill time. I also held a mini-homage to Canadian rock legends Leonard Cohen (who was in Saskatoon November 20) and Neil Young (who stopped by Saskatoon last Wednesday, November 14.)

Anydoodle, here's my playlists.
