Hey hey, it's the month of May!

I'm not going to lie to you right now - Lauryn Hill is one of my all-time favourite artists, and I'm really hoping to score JazzFest tickets to see her. The mind of 17-year-old me was filled with glee upon hearing the news a couple days ago! I played her Miseducation of Lauryn Hill album until it literally stopped working. I can't believe it came out 16 years ago.
Today I had a trainee host named Brendan join me in studio and he took the reigns for a few sets. He really loves his Canadian music too, and it will be great to have him join the ranks. :)
Have an excellent rest of the week, and see you on May 8.
