Keep Swingin'

Oh, hey!

It's been way too long! The last time I hosted was October 15. Which was a mere 15 days ago, but a long 15 days ago. Happy to be back in the hosting chair for a bit today.

The week before last, I was away, and between travelling and everything I caught a cold somewhere in there and I literally had no voice! I was only starting to get it back last week, so didn't want to subject listeners to my squeaks and squawks. haha. Even now, I'm still a bit raspy, but much better than I was before. Anyway...haha.

Standing On the Edge

Well, hello there! I'm here a day earlier than usual, and won't be here for my regular show tomorrow? What is happening with the world?

Well, I filled in for my fellow host Britty today, and was happy to be able to help out. I am feeling a bit under the weather, and I had a bit a late-ish night, but it was worth it because I saw SLOAN last night. They are magical, and have been since I discovered them at around the ripe age of....14 or so? They've been around since 1991 -- that's 19 years of rocking. So. freaking. GOOD!

Anyway, I'll be back in my regular slot next Thursday. :)

Steal this Sound

Happy Thursday!  I am always happy and it is always a jolt of awesomeness and musical coffee to come share some tunes every Thursday. I won't be here next week, and I shall miss being on the airwaves. But, with the many amazing hosts we have here at CFCR, I know listeners' ears will be in good hands. Not literally, but you get my gist I'm sure... Moving on...

I need to say a resounding thank you to those who have supported my CFCR fundraising this year.


As previously mentioned, I am no sales gal! This year, I just asked some of those I knew who love the station, and they generously gave. I am currently at $909, which is about $91 short of my personal goal, but that's A-okay. I am elated! Funny what happens when you ask for what you'd like! :)

It means so much to me, as does this station. I am so thankful for it every day, and how it has impacted and shaped my life here in Saskatoon thus far. ♥♪ What is wonderful about community radio is that it is so many things to so many people, thanks to our varied programming.

If you are reading this, and still want to donate, you still can until the end of October 31. by heading to fmphasis.ca. Much love!

The Day We Hit the Coast

'Ello 'Ello, pals!

Well, it's Thursday October 2nd. Wheeere'd that come from? It's chilly today.

So, another FM-Phasis show under my belt, woo! It's been a great couple weeks and we're working towards our goal of $70,000! Just over halfway there, and there's always a big push in the last few days. Still lots of cool stuff you can get for donating.

My personal goal is $1000, and I'm a good chunk of the way there! I just need a few more donations to make it. So if you're feeling particularly generous, I'd kindly encourage you to go to fmphasis.ca and donate to my show! (Thursday 6-8 Green Eggs and Ham, if ya didn't know, haha.) I really love this station a whole bunch, so it would mean the world to me.
