Our Hearts Were Young

Hello, there!

I hope you're having a lovely week. I'm having a weird one personally, I think my karma is off or something, because I've fallen, burned my fingers, and generally just felt out of sorts.

But you know what always helps? Hanging out and sharing tunes at CFCR every Thursday!

Today's show was a great mix of tempos, sweet new songs, classics (hello, Maybe Smith!) and some local greatness, as always!

Without further adieu,

All the Stars


It's November 20, and it's chilly. I've been in the mood for watching movies, and making soups. I'm also always looking for music to warm me up, which means it can range from pumped-up rock tracks to mellow folky vibes.

I feel that today's playlist was just that - a scoop of this, and a dash of that.

I've included some links for some upcoming shows and interesting tidbits!

Things are pretty busy down at CFCR these days, with FM-Phasis wrapping up, and our Artists for Alternative Radio Art Auction coming up next Saturday, November 15. It's selling out quick - if it hasn't already! :)

I need to say another heartfelt thanks to those who supported my show with FM-Phasis, and to those who listen to the show. I appreciate the support, and I have a blast! I hope you do too. :)

Take care, and talk to you next week!
