Out there, In the Wild

Well, today is my last official day as a host at CFCR 90.5 FM.

I am moving out of the city next week to start a new life chapter. I am happy for new opportunities and adventures, but will miss everything about CFCR. It enriched my life so much.

I could wax poetic and positive forever (and already have a bit through personal channels). So above is a collage I made of just some of the hundreds of pictures I have of CFCR-related endeavours.

Also, I want to truly express my sincere appreciation. Thank you to those who I've met, volunteered with, been trained by, those who I've trained, my fellow hosts, the staff, the board, the listeners, and my friends and family. It's been an amazing privilege and honour being a part of it all.

I hummed and hawwed about how best to honour my time in sexyxe (sexy YXE, ya know!?), and I thought -- how else but to play as many Saskatoon bands I could jam into a two hour time slot? There were so many more and I named a number that I wanted to fit in but simply couldn't. Like the awesome Man Meat, great pals o' mine who are going to raucously rock Sled Island this year. Also Shooting Guns, We Were Lovers, Caves, Chunder Buffet, and the list really goes on, because, Lord liftin' we have a vast array of talent here in Saskatoon.

We're loaded up with links, so check 'em all out, k?

I will not lie, I thought I was gonna sap it up way more today, but I only cried at the end of my show. No tears right now, so that's good.

Much love and here's to awesome community radio! ❤️

Golden Days


Well. Life is funny, and interesting.

This is my second to last show with CFCR, I am all finished next week. It is certainly bittersweet. This station, its fine programming, and the stellar people I've gotten to know are amazing. CFCR's presence is the foundation of my life here in Saskatoon.

I have taken an employment opportunity in another city, and will be relocating mid-month.

Alas, the show will go on, with a new host, and I'll carry this station in my heart, for certain.

So, I've got some links about upcoming events, some as soon as this evening! Check it out.
