Well, Smarch is pretty much over. (Simpsons reference...)
It's been a busy month for me personally, but doin' a-okay. I've always got the music, my awesome weekly show and this amazing station to keep me going!
I had a great show today, playing some different tunes. I try my best to share music and talk about the meaning behind it, whether that is a factoid about a certain artist, their song title, the lyrics. Always searching for that message behind the notes. Sometimes I even go so far as to share things I've seen on social media - i.e. poor Jim Bryson tumbling off a ladder. (Wishes for a speedy recovery, pal!) Though I will say, I do not and will not ever take my fact-sharing to tabloid proportions, just general tidbits and well wishes.I dunno, maybe it's silly, but I try to do this so people feel connected to the artist they're hearing.

So, just a friendly reminder - our membership drive is starting next week - on March 31 - and will run to April 13. During that time, we'll be out in the community at various locations, hosting shows, and having all sorts of draws. A CFCR membership is good for one year, and gives members benefits and discounts at many local business, eligibility for monthly and periodic draws, and all sorts of other cool things! :) More information is available here.
See ya next Thursday!
