Sharpest Diamond

Allo!

Well, the first month of 2016 is almost done. Today's show was all over the place, but I had fun putting this one together. Lotsa Sasky goodness, some rock, some folk, and some non-traditional picks. T'was a blast!

If you happened to tune into me today - apologies for my voice issues. I'm recovering from a cold, and still a bit raspy. The rest of the year can be ailment free now...

Today I started the show off with Tanya Tagaq. I saw her live last week along with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra, thanks to some lovely pals o' mine who generously snagged me a ticket. All I have to say is wow. What an experience for the senses - so beyond captivating. I think I sat there with my mouth agape the whole time. It was lovely to see a drum group, and a drum and flute duo perform alongside as well.

Check out some really great links in this post for some information, pictures, and upcoming events.

Choisis Tes Mots

Oh, hi there!

So very happy to be back after two weeks. I hadn't planned on missing last week's show, but was out of commission with back issues. I'm feeling about 90 percent better this week, so yay!

I really liked the composition of this week's playlist, it was a lot of fun. Lots of local flavour and a mix of beats, tempos and genres. I featured some artists that will be performing in the fine city of #yxe soon. Please check out the links below for some information on that, and some other goodies!
