New Orbit

Another great week, another awesome show. Another song title for a blog title!

So, at this time, we're into FM-Phasis! Every night until October 2, we're open 9 am to 9 pm to take pledges!

If you can't come visit, you can go to fmphasis.ca and donate there.

If you're a fan of my show - first of all, THANK YOU! I have a really great time doing it, and I feel fortunate every week to share tunes and talk about this awesome station and great music.

Second of all, if you contribute to my show, I will very much appreciate it, and you will help me reach my goal of $1000!

Hi hi hi!

Today was a lovely day in community radio! Sunny skies, lots of cool new-to-me tunes, and the promise of fun FM-Phasis times in the very near future. Woo hoo!

Some interesting points about the artists today are linked in this ol' blog.

The K-Bros have just set out on their fall tour - coast to coast and even some shows in New York.   Go Bros! Check out their video for Tether Ball, featuring some local actors and the iconic Amigos Cantina.:)

Oceans Brawl

My oh my. It's September! Wowza.

Today's show was a super fun one - who I am kidding, hanging out at CFCR is always a great time. Played a couple older fun tunes, and a few new-to-me ones too.

My ever-loving cousin who always tunes to my show in from PEI told me about the beautiful song by Imaginary Cities called Purple Heart. I love it for its name alone! The video for it is pretty as well.

I have some cool links to share below as well, including some info about the Polaris Music Prize. Alvvays is shortlisted for this year's award. There was a great Polaris Panel and chat the other day, hosted by SaskMusic and taking place at the awesome Prairie Sun Brewery. Also... I am already obsessed with Coeur de pirate's beautiful new album, just released last week. A great showcase of her talent with this bilingual collection of tunes.

Knot in My Heart

Oh, hey!

A tad behind posting these lists. Oh summer -- you were splendid, busy and zoomed by so fast. I know it's officially still summer until September 22, but the return of back to school always makes the beginning of the month feel like fall is here, even if the weather is nice.

Both weeks I kinda really mixed up my tempos quite a bit. I realize now that I repeated a few artists, but that just means I like them, right?!

Check out the links for information, like upcoming shows, cool articles, and other tidbits.

Will be back on September 3 for the 6-8 am helping of Thursday's Green Eggs and Ham!
