Hold On Hope

Hi there!

It's Thursday again, and January's almost done. First month of 2017 is down! How'd it go for you?

Thanks to Winterruption (run by the amazing Broadway Theatre), I got to take in a few great shows last weekend, including the captivating Emma Ruth Rundle, our local rock n' roll sweeties The Moas and Altlantic superdudes TUNS, and every Canadian's hero -- Fred Penner. Each show was so meaningful to me in different ways - each artist was amazing and the company I shared at the shows was wonderful as well. 

I've got a few links for you to check out below for upcoming acts, and be sure to keep an eye on our website for upcoming events - FEMFEST, our annual Record Fair, and lots more.

Quite Like You

Hi there!

Hope it's been a lovely week for everyone. I'm personally having a bit of a weird one -- not bad per se, just a bit off the mark. Haha. Music always helps, though. <3

It was great to be back hosting again today -- I'm still so happy to have hosted so many wonderful shows last week on behalf of my radio pal colleague dudes.

I really liked this week's show. A good mix of Saskie talent (which we have an abundance of in our lovely province) older and newer, and some from very soon-to-be upcoming acts which are featured in the links below.

Back Among Friends

What an apt title I've chosen!

Welcome back to my playlist blog. The hiatus from posting has mostly come from the fact that my own computer has quit turning on. I've been quasi-getting by on borrowing laptops from pals (thankss!) and using the public computer at the library. Ahh technology, you necessary beast. haha.

Over the last several weeks, I have had a couple of keen trainees learning the boards: Anne and Chris. I will make sure I indicate their picks in colour code (this brings me great amounts of joy -- I love colour coding...yes I am aware I'm a nerd).

Also - HAPPY 2017!

I've been super lucky this past week to be able to help out my fellow radio colleagues by standing in while they were otherwise occupied! On January 13, I had the great pleasure to fill in for Friday Buzz host, the esteemed Brendan Flaherty, and the following day, I was in the hosting chair for the awesome themed show, Snake Mountain Mixtape. SO MUCH RADIO. ♥

So, without further ado, here are the logs from all the shows recently, in reverse chronological order! Also, there are some links to some cool stuff and upcoming shows -- check 'em out!
