Life's A Miracle

Well, 2015, you were a slice.

Great music, fun and friends. Lessons, ups, downs and all arounds.

For 2016, I just wish for continued growth, health, happiness and kindness.

I am exhausted because I attended Bandswap last evening and had a raucous good time, and got to bed fairly late. With my show being at 6 am, I'mma gonna need me some massive amounts of coffee to close out this year, but that's okay. Why not have a great time, eh!?

I'm so very thankful for experiences, CFCR-related, music-related and otherwise this year.

Check out some great year end lists for some wonderful prairie-based musical goodies.

Thanks to an awesome website, The Line of Best Fit, there are many great tunes available from fantastic Canadian artists. Ho! Ho! Ho! Canada they're called. Last year's collection was dedicated to the memory of the wonderful Derek Bachman, who passed away suddenly on December 10, 2014. ♥♫

Speaking of the sparkling Saskatchewan music scene, here's some Sask-made goodness in the form of a playlist from SaskMusic!

So, I'll be away for next week's show, but back on December 31 to close out the year that was 2015.

Till then,

Take care,

Concrete Heart

Hey, hey!

Last week's show was great. I got to train an awesome pal o' mine, the luminous Miranda Young! She's got a deep appreciation for CFCR, has been an avid volunteer for a few years now, and has finally given in to incessant badgering from several folks (including me!) to join the host ranks. She picked a few great tunes and hopped on air for a few sets -- fun times!
