Jersey Boys

This past weekend was filled with rain, and lots of it. However, I found the perfect hiding spot to escape the rain... Jersey Boys!

Last Saturday, I headed out to Gull Lake for a 50's style evening at the Lyceum Theatre. They held an event that included burgers and a can of coca-cola for $2, and an exclusive showing of the new Jersey Boys movie! It was a lovely not-so-little theatre with plenty of people to take advantage of the movie and the amazing popcorn.

There was also a bit of a show 'n shine in the movie theatre parking lot for anyone who wanted to show off their vehicle.

It was an awesome evening, all for old fashioned prices.

My Week in the Southwest

This past week was filled with baseball, dinosaurs, and concerts!

On Thursday, I headed out to the East Block of Grasslands National Park for "Fossil Fever!". I went on a hike through the valley, and got a chance to see a real triceratops fossil! I learned about the different rock formations and I witnessed quicksand for the first time.

Swift Current hosted the AA Minor Western Canada Baseball Championships this past Saturday, and I got to hangout at the ball diamonds and work the concession! There was quite a turn out and we had lots of fun serving up burgers and hot dogs for the folks in town!

 

On Saturday night, I headed out to Gowan's Grove for the Bears in Hazenmore EP Release. Stacy Tinant and Colter Wall kicked off the night with two incredible performances, and Bears in Hazenmore had the crowd captivated with their songs from the EP, as well as a few covers. This crew is going to go far!

Check back in next week for more adventures with Shanna!

Finals start tonight...

Swift Current Indians are on a roll, sweeping first the Weyburn Beavers followed by the Regina Red Sox, it's down to the wire...

Tonight is game one of the finals against the Medicine Hat Mavericks, first pitch at Mitchell Field at 7:05.

Kim Johnston, host of MY96 in Medicine Hat, sent out a friendly wager to me this morning... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_Nps796kDs&

So naturally I had to fire a response back... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRHnVtKkFSk&;

It's all in good fun, but honestly Kim really is a huge fan of the Tribe so I look forward to fufilling his dream of getting back into a SC ball cap!

Come out tonight to pack the park, tickets can be purchased at the gate!

and the winner is...

Listening for #KershawClassic paid off for Patti Highsaw (Mankota) and Shannon Poff (Swift Current) they were the 9th callers and won tickets to tonights SOLD OUT show!







sammyKershaw

Rain Watcher, Grant Schierlink, called the other day and we had him choose a number between one and ten... he chose nine.

I had Patti & Shannon both pick and number, Patti (6)/Shannon(5) so Patti and her husband Lionel will not only be attending the show at the Sky Centre but will have the opportunity to Meet & Greet Mr. Kershaw!

Congrats winners!

Power outage = No Kershaw

We successfully gave away tickets to Sammy Kershaw this morning, Patti Highsaw from Mankota was the 9th caller during "She Don't Know She's Beautiful". Congrats!

During "Haunted Heart" other forces came into play and the power at our transmitter site went down, therefore postponing the final pair of tickets! Spooky!

As a result, to make it fair for everyone, we will be playing a #KershawClassic tomorrow between 6-9am, same as this morning... when you hear his smooth sultry voice, be the 9th caller and you could be on your way to the sold out performance at the Sky Centre!

Blake Berglund & the Vultures will be opening.

Now that the power is back on, it's just a matter of finding the appropriate dress for the occasion! :) See you tomorrow night!

Concerts, Rodeos, Dog Parks... Oh My!

Well, it was another fun weekend in the southwest!

On Friday, I went to the Frenchman River Gospel Jamboree in Shaunavon. There was alot of amazing talent up there with Catherine Lewans, 321 Improv, and Link Union! It was a friendly, compassionate atmosphere in the Crescent Point Wickenheiser Centre, and Catherine had the audience in awe.

Next stop was Eastend's Centennial on Saturday. I spent the day out there, and it was the best small town centennial I've been to yet! They had a little street fair, a HUGE parade, and an awesome rodeo. The rodeo featured mini chuck wagon races, and it was the cutest and most entertaining thing I've ever attended. What's so mini about it? Mini horses! They ran a few races, and the CJSN chuck wagon won the calcutta race! They also had the J&S Trick Riders out there putting on a great show, as well as Team Masters with their beautiful Percherons! It was seriously the coolest thing to watch.

On Sunday, I went to the Swift Current Dog Park's Grand Opening! It was the greatest way to spend my Sunday... Puppy kisses galore! There was lots of dogs running around at the park enjoying the 28 acres of free space, as well as a demonstration from the RCMP K-9 Unit. Pet Valu was also there handing out treats for our furry friends. Raffle draws, tours, and a reveal of the proposed dog park design.. it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon!

#TBT mixed with a little long weekend action

In the past few months, #TBT has become a staple to our listeners, and we get quite an eclectic taste of requests! Everything and anything goes as long as you fulfill these requirements:

- Can't be anything newer than 2000
- Has to be a country song... obviously
- Should be upbeat as we don't want to put the rest of the audience to sleep! zzz

Pretty easy to follow and this week there was a couple of specials requests which kept things interesting!

The 28th Annual CCA/CRA Herbert Stampede kicks off tonight, so Albert Woelk a representative from the Gouldtown area made a special request.




So you heard, we did play "Coward of the County" and no I will not be participating in the Wild Cow Race! You can spectate alongside me as the event happens this Sunday at the Herbert Rodeo Grounds.

A longtime, loyal listener is celebrating a birthday this weekend and shares it with her twin brother. Evelyn Wiebe, we hope you enjoyed your request and have a happy birthday!




This morning we gave away our final pair of tickets to the Frenchman River Gospel Jam and I haven't heard a listener get this excited in a very long time...




You can still get tickets at www.frgj.ca - Link Union headlines tonight, Jason Blaine tomorrow and The Oak Ridge Boys round off the weekend on Sunday. Just a heads up there was a misprint on the Sunday passes, doors open at 1:15 and the show starts at 2pm.

Enjoy the weekend, whether its a rodeo performance, FRGJ, a centennial event or maybe just some downtime at home!
