Ya thinks got a little weird this morning... Big shoutout by the way to Leigh and Natasha down at the Broncos offices for putting me up to it and appreciating the minimal work put into the transformation of Franco into Krell
The Bronco Office supports Krell and Krell supports the Bronco Office... Get in touch with them about some 2014-2015 season tickets and let's make every game like those playoff games against the Tigers
Heather and Michelle stopped by the studio this morning to get everyone hyped for their big home opening match tomorrow night
Also Devon and Danny were in to talk about Dead Prairies Productions involvment with the team
I would say the perfect plans this weekend are some golf and patio drinking, but the forecast seems to dictate the weekend will be better spent indoors (at a roller derby bout for example)... Have a good one, but be responsible and safe!
Thursday Theatre Talk
Thursday, 24 April 2014 10:25
Mellissa and Bruce were in studio this morning to talk about the remaining shows for the 180 Theatre Festival happening this week (up to Saturday) in Swift Current
And as much as it pains me to do this (mostly because I don't conform to fads) a #TBT (or Throwback Thursday if you don't do acronyms well) in honour of Marc Andre Fleury's amazing puck playing skills (which were on display again last night)
Apparantly his new goalie coach never told him to just stay in the net and let the defence handle the puck (one can hope heading into game 5 though)
10th Annual Mayor's Luncehon
Tuesday, 22 April 2014 06:58
In studio this morning we were joined by Ruth Smith, Executive Director for Swift Current's chapter of Canadian Mental Health... She was here with details on the 10th Annual Mayor's Luncheon, which this year will be in support of Mental Health
More details are available at http://www.tourismswiftcurrent.ca/event/mayors-luncheon/ including "The 10th Annual Mayor’s Luncheon features Guest Speaker Lieutenant Governor Vaughn Solomon Schofield. All proceeds from this event go to support the local Swift Current Branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association. Advance tickets only, must be purchased by April 28. Call 306-778-2440 to reserve."
And now for a look at the greatest play in baseball... The bench clearing brawl! Remember kids, this is what happens when you "celly" a little too hard, everytime it happens someone will want to punch you in the head, and inevitably someone actually will punch you in the head
(watch at closer to the 2 minute mark for the replay where you get to see the scrum from a better angle)

A busy Thursday meant no chance to blog, but still want to pass along our interview from that morning with Bill Lee now that we are back into the work grind
Bill was in studio with Graham Parsons to tee up this year's charity golf tournament (for the SPCA)... Still lots of time to get registered for that tourny and from what I have heard it is always alot of fun (even if you can't golf)
This morning we had Ken Johnston back in studio talking about the 180 Theatre Festival taking place this week in Swift Current
And from the hockey filled Easter weekend that was, a not so hockey related story, during a hockey game, the son of a hockey announcer, not playing hockey, but on TV like his dad, and absolutely killing it... Not a part of America's got Talent, but Britian's got Talent, and to top it all off? Simon Cowell NOT looking like he hates everything about what he just saw. If all that confused you not to worry just watch the video and it'll kind of make sense (and also get a subscription to the BBC if you miss Simon Cowell)
(spoiler alert: not the actual HNIC clip, but it will do)
(also I guess that doesn't help with the confusion of the description, but I'm writing it off as being Monday)
