Body of Years

Hi folks!

So, tomorrow's the end of March. WHAT?

Today, I met another trainee, John! It was great to teach him about the ins and outs of the station. He also hopped on air for a quick segment too. If people feel ready, I always give 'em the option because you learn by doing with the boards, for sure. Yay more fellow radio colleagues! His picks are in blue below!

Got a couple links fer ya to check out - including a nice article about one of my faves, Jenn Grant. If you are able to go to her show tonight - DO! And if so, I'm jealous!

Future Politics

Hi, pals.

Hope all's well. Apt title today...

In other news, I thought I was getting a spring cold, but it seems I have allergies. Dang, it's been strange! I can't actually remember the last time I had spring allergies, it was way before I moved out to SK though, so 12+ years, for sure. I think I'm on the mend though. Feeling mostly back to normal(ish), whatever that means.

Got some cool links for you to check out. Some festivals were announced recently, like the Gateway Festival in good ol' Bengough! Great lineup.

I am very much looking forward to seeing Joel Plaskett perform with his father Bill tomorrow at the Broadway Theatre. Dear friends of mine got me a ticket for Christmas! The Mayhemingways are opening for them. They're a two-piece band from Ontario, whom I once saw perform in front of Back Alley Music in Charlottetown, PEI a couple years ago. Should be a great evening!

Further From You


Rad radio times to be had today.

I'm a lucky little trainer over here, I had another budding host in with me today - Emily! She was refining her skills, and it was great to chat with her and hear her on-air!

Today's playlist had a couple big themes - mostly femme-led artists and bands, and lots of Sasky goodness. Femme because of #IWD2017, SK awesomeness because we simply have so much of it! :)

Speaking of celebrating fem/me - FEMFEST is TOMORROW NIGHT! It's going to be spectacular! The lovely folks from Girls Rock Saskatoon will also be on hand with a booth chockfull of info about that great endeavour as well.

Everything You've Done Wrong - (Mostly) 90s Canadiana

Hi there!

I filled in for the lovely Savhanna on Snake Mountain Mixtape this evening.

I was 100% inspired by a 90s dance party that took place this week. I was thinking how much awesome Canadian music there is and was back in the 90s. Quite a few of the songs I picked were played at our junior high and high school dances back in the day.

So, here's the list for tonight - so much nostalgia!
