Hold on When You Get Love, Let Go When You Give It


I am slacking a bit, sorry! This month zoomed by at breakneck speeds! It's January 30! 

Yesterday's show was chock full of ear candy... erm.. that sounds gross. But I'm sure you get my drift. Aural delights? I digress. 

I played lots of Sask-based goodies, upcoming features, and a couple of award-nominated tunes from here in our fine city! (And one Grammy-winning band, right AVL?) 

Did JUNO (see what I did there!?) that Shooting Guns are nominated for Metal/Hard Music Album of the Year? And that Deep Dark Woods are nominated for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year in the Group category. Gooooo Saskatoon!

Ello, ello, dear CFCR listeners!

Today's show was a blast. I'll be honest, I always have fun sharing the tunes and babbling away about random facts on air, but visiting this amazing radio station is quite often the highlight of my week.

Exciting news - Joel Plaskett is going to be coming back to Saskatoon! I think it's been a good four or five years since he's been back, as he's been busy on the festival circuit, writing and producing. Yay, East Coast goodness. I am one happy prairietimer. (read: Maritimer living in the prairies. ;) haha).

Help I'm Alive

Hello! Well, if I needed a musical pick-me-up, it came at a great time! I had a flat tire on my car this morning... le sigh. But many other things about the day so far - including some awesome tunes - have been wonderful. Lovely compliments from a friend in Montreal and a family member in PEI, and a coffee from a fellow host were definitely big reasons to smile. And I'm alive. That's a good day. :)

All I've Ever Known

Well, hello 2015!

You are kind of annoying me so far, what with your sub-zero temperatures and how busy you've been. 

I've been a super mega crankypants this week, but I will say that hosting this morning made things immeasurably more bearable. I was away for Christmas and New Year, so haven't hosted since December 18. I missed the music and the mic. :)
