The Radiothon Rocks

Once again, the radiothon is set to rock Swift Current
Here at the Eagle we are super proud of the crew over at our sister station Country Music Radio - CKSW/CJSN as they gear up for another big Radiothon helping out the Dr. Noble Irwin Healthcare Foundation.
Last year the Radiothon raised $144,000 to buy a new CT scanner, which has already played a role in saving lives. Since it was installed in June over 3700 potentially lifesaving scans have been conducted.
This year the money raised will be used to buy equiptment to perform high tech laser surgery. Having these kind of tools in our hospital plays a critical role in recruiting doctors to the area, and it has an obvious upside in patient care and treatment. So dig deep and give. The Radio-thon starts tomorrow and runs through Friday on our sister stations CKSW/CJSN. For the next couple of days, country rocks!!

It doesn't matter if you call them Fall or Fowl suppers, the scale will read heavier after you get your fill of turkey and all the trimmings!

Labour Day Long
Friday, 29 August 2014 10:29
First things first... We got our Grand Prize winner with Eagle the Elmwood this morning
Congrats Tim on picking up a nights stay at the Home Inn & Suites, $100 slotplay and a free meal from Horizons and the Living Sky Casino, and also a new set of clubs and some free golf from the Elmwood Golf & Country Club
Also a shoutout to Canadian Tire, Pioneer Co-op Home Center, Pinnacle Source for Sports, and Cap It in Med Hat for helping out with the contest this summer!
If you're heading up to Regina Sunday (my prediction 107-3 Rider win) make sure you do the responsible thing and have someone to drive you home (or don't drink if that's an option for you at a Rider game)... Even if you're not heading out to Regina this weekend, make sure you do the responsible, adult thing and don't Drink and Drive... Save a life (possibly your own) and have a fun, safe Labour Day Long Weekend!
Dressler Is Back

Good news for the thousands and thousands of folks with one of those #7 jerseys... Dressler is back and just in time for the Labour Day Classic!
Regina is obviously gonna be the place to be this Sunday, but you may need some plans to fill out the rest of your long weekend ahead.
This morning we had Jacqui Hudec in to tee up her EP release party tomorrow night at the Lyric Theatre
Yesterday we had Member of Parliment David Anderson in to give a behind the scenes of what goes on in the political game
And don't forget tomorrow morning is the final draw for Eagle The Elmwood! One lucky golfer is going to finish August with new clubs, some free golf, and some Living Sky Casino perks, plus a stay at the Home Inn & Suites here in town... Be listening live tomorrow around 8:30 for the draw.
