I Can't Speak

Oh, hi there!

Another week in community radio. It's already June!

This week's AGM was a good one. We celebrated some folks who have been instrumental to our long-term success as a station. This time around, Sigrid Kirmse, Jeff Lee, and Ron Spizziri were given lifetime memberships. Hats off to these dedicated community radio advocates! We also have some great new board members, and had many wonderful candidates in the running.

Today's show was a bit of a musical roller coaster - an energetic start, a super-chill set following, some electronic infusion, and a smattering of upbeat, poppy and rocky tunes. I always have fun compiling these playlists and seeing them take shape. Rhyme and reason aren't usually huge factors, just feelin' it.

I played some B.A. Johnston, who will be at Amigos this coming Saturday, along with some other awesome acts. That will be an entertaining show, without a doubt. Be sure to check out what other awesome is coming up in Saskatoon.
