National High Five Day & Throwback Thursday!? BEST DAY EVER.
Seriously - what better way to cap off a short work week than to have "Throwback Thursday"?
No, we're not just talking about ugly baby pics on Instagram...
Candace. Circa 1987. Pre-orthodontics.
We had the best requests today - and GUESTS! Holy liftin', it was a party in the Magic 97 studio today. Bill Lee & Graham Parsons joined us to discuss the charity golf tournament, in aid of the SPCA happening in August. Plans are underway and we'll make sure you're well informed because we LOVE helping out the SPCA!
ALSO - we had the beautiful and hilarious Poppy Parsons in as a guest host at 8am to talk about the "in" designs for flowers at weddings this wedding season.
Happy Easter weekend, y'all!!
Go Midnight Roses!
The Midnight Roses are not only Swift Current's finalist entry for the CBC Searchlight contest, they're the representatives for ALL of Saskatchewan!
This super-talented bluegrass/country band is high energy and they're the next big thing. We know it - now, let's help our whole country know it too!
Lead singer Myshell Pajuaar chatted with Candace this morning to outline how the contest has gone for them so far.
It would be sooooo cool to see them win. They rock. Thanks for taking the time to do an interview, Myshell!
PS - because Friday is Good Friday and a stat holiday - we're doing THROWBACK THURSDAY for tomorrow's morning show.
Get your best 80s and 90s pop songs teed up for a request... tweet us at @Magic97_SC OR email Candace at

It's Monday - and everyone has a case of the Mondays today.
BUT here's something that may help.
Have you been to the SPCA in Swift Current lately? They're closed today, but you can visit their website to see what gorgeous animals they have up for adoption.
Candace was at Discover the Farm on Saturday and sadly could NOT take home this adorable baby goat...
(Special thanks to Glenda Allen for making this happen!)
However, she WAS able to adopt this little beauty from the SPCA:
Her name was Chili, but Candace is renaming her Margaret Thatcher. She's the Iron Lady, after all.
If you'd like to adopt an animal -we urge you to visit the awesome staff at the SPCA. They devote a lot of time to making sure these gorgeous animals find their forever homes. Thank you for all that you do!
Fallback Friday on the Magic Morning Show!
While getting ready for work at the crack of dawn this morning, Candace decided it was going to be Fallback Friday - featuring the best pop music listener requests of the 80s and 90s - and the phone lines, the Twitter account, the Facebook page were going NUTS with feedback.
A few of the gems featured this morning?
- The Outfield - "Your Love" (thanks to Tracey Martin via Twitter)
- Rick Springfield - "Jessie's Girl" (Tara Christianson requested this in PERSON - nice one, sista!)
- Michael Jackson - "Billie Jean" (thanks to whoever called - you made my morning, as I moonwalked around the studio like a fool.)
- John Fogerty - "Center Field" (shoutout to Bryce Martin for tweet requesting this, and getting pumped about the Swift Current Minor Baseball season!)
- and Ensel called in and wanted to hear THIS:
How can ANYONE go wrong with Huey Lewis?
Especially when it's "National Eight Track Day". I think the Delorean probably had a sweet 8 Track deck...
It's also National Poutine Day. So - you know... get on that.
