One of These Days

Thursday, the end of May. How is almost half the year over already!?

Lots of great things going on in the city, upcoming shows and the like. You'll be able to find CFCR folk at a few events in the near future, namely Food Truck Wars and Pride festivities. Also, don't forget MoSo - it's sneakin' up quick and is only a couple weeks away.

Also, our Annual General Meeting is coming up next Tuesday, May 31. The time has passed to get nominations in for the vacant Board of Directors positions, but if you want to attend and be able vote, you have to have your valid membership by noon tomorrow - May 27. Yay for another wonderful year of Community Radio! Also, this is our 25th year on air! Ayo, Silver...anniversary!

Today's playlist was a cool one to compile. There were artists from a few different genres, a handful of forthcoming acts, and a sprinkling of other rad tunes. Played one of my many favourite Tragically Hip tunes today as well. Cancer sucks so much and touches way too many people. :( The band is embarking on tour with their illustrious frontman soon. Courage.

Lots of linky-loos to check out today, so be sure to give 'em a click!

Baby Give Up on It

Oh, hey. Happy Thursday!

Today's show was a gooder. I was in need of some musical uplifting, so I had a nice long dance-y set in the first hour, and I hope it helped others get their morning going right as well!

There was a good mix of new and old in there as well. I had to throw a Black Mountain tune into the mix as well, because they were just so dang good at Amigos the other day.
