Waaaake up, Saskatoon!

Today, I played some upbeat tunes with a splash of hometown goodness and a dash of randomness. The randomness comes natural as randomness can... but I made a concerted effort to play some upbeat songs early to help coax myself listeners out of slumber with some energetic dance-y tunes! Hope it worked!

*Denotes Saskatchewan-based artists

A few notes from today's show:
  • I played a cover of a song that came out in 1995. I remember it well. It's called How Bizarre. Sweet heavens, I'm old. 
  • I played Jeffrey Straker, an artist from Punnichy, Saskatchewan. At first listen to his music, I felt a bit of an Elton John-esque vibe. Turns out I'm not the only one! I love the strong piano in his songs.
  • I love the Shad and Dallas song. It's a beautiful blend of two bloody talented artists. I love them both for their craft, and adore this collaboration. Take a listen, if ya'd like (via tumblr).
  • If you're in Saskatoon on Friday, go see Zachary Lucky and Saskatoon's favourite bro duo, the K-Bros at the Bassment. If you love acoustic awesomeness and fantastic stage presence, do it up!

Therr she be for another couple weeks.  

much love,
