A New Name for Everything

Happy Thursday!

Today was a nice day in CFCR-adioland.

I had a trainee host in today named Jeff, and he was fantastic. During one host break, he made a great comment about taking care out there, and said "look out for pedestrians, fellow motorists, bicyclists, motorcylces, jugglers..." haha I had to muffle my giggle so I didn't bust out on-air. Too funny.

I love having trainees in, helping them learn the ins and outs, ups and downs. :) It feels like a long time ago, but only a mere five-ish years ago I was learning about all the knobs and doodads and proper radio procedures. I've said it before, and I'll say it again - CFCR is a wonderful family to be a part of. *warm fuzzies* We're always recruiting hosts (it's such a blast!) and being a member has rad perks.

A Heart Like Hers

Hi, hi.

Today's list was a blend of good time tunes and catharsis. It came together really holistically and has helped me fight away some blues I've been trying to ward off. Music is so wonderful for that! I found it went up and down like waves, which is some pretty cool imagery right there.

I also got to give away tickets to the upcoming Aidan Knight show this weekend. His new album is hauntingly beautiful. I featured upcoming shows like Jason Collett and Kalle Mattson, and lots of sweet Saskatoon songs.
