Today, it is my dear cousin Laura's birthday. She lives in PEI, and always listens to my show! She is an amazing gal. Her favourite band in the world is Saskatoon's own Sheepdogs. This past winter, I had the great fortune to meet Ryan Gullen, super sweet and down to earth bassist in said supergroup. I still had a copy the Rolling Stone magazine from 2011 when they won the Cover Shoot contest! I told Ryan how much my cousin and I loved the band, and he got all the guys to sign the mag, and I sent it to her for Christmas. No one has ever been so happy to receive a 2.5 year old magazine! :)
I made sure to play a couple of their tunes today, including the aptly titled Birthday!
Well, see you on Thursday, May 29!
