Thursday Theatre Talk

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

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 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)

Easter Monday

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)

NHL Playoffs = Snow??

Blog Apr 16 snow

Alot of people getting tired of waking up to this sight for their morning commute

But with the NHL Playoffs beginning tonight you know that the weather is going to warm up (eventually it has to right?).

A little playoff preview on this morning's show (through my eyes anyways) and I have Pittsburgh and Chicago in the Final with a Penguins win... Back to back drafts show that I'm not making this up, it's actually the way I feel

Also in studio this morning was an alternative for those who get no excitement out of the NHL Playoffs.  Teresa Cole joined the show as Publicity Chair for the 180 Theatre Festival set to take place April 21-26

Tuesday Mayor Chat


pictured in replacement of Cam Krell is Candace Woodside (who is clearly more photogenic)... Joined in studio this morning by Mayor Jerrod Schafer, who brought along some Ashley Park students who are a part of the K-Kids Club and our (EDIT- are) in the midst of doing some fundraising (full details and chat in the audio clip below)

Tomorrow morning I will be going through your opening round playoff matchups in the WHL(EDIT-NHL), and Thursday morning tickets are up for grabs to this weekend's Blenders event.

EDIT - figured I'd show the edits this morning just so anyone else who is having some brain cramps on a Tuesday can relate!
