Today was a good day in radio. I wasn't feeling super chatty, but that's okay! It's about the music. :)
I have all sorts of cool links to peruse below, including upcoming local shows, including ones for Sled Island and Jazz Fest, a new EP (!!), and some artists that are on the long list for the Polaris Music Prize.

Also, I played Angel Olsen today. Her performance here in Saskatoon the other day was nothing short of stunning. She had the crowd at Amigos pin-drop quiet at several points, which at a typically chat-filled establishment, is rare. She is a swoon-worthy crooner, for certain.
Well, dat's it for another week. Lots of great music coming up, and as always, you can use our handy events page to keep up-to-date!
Until June 30,
