The Wildlife Festival is Swooping Into Town!

The Wildlife Festival is Swooping into Town Wednesday March 4th

Join in the fun for the Wild Americas Show! The Canadian Raptor Conservancy and Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo are going to be at the Palliser Pavilion and the show will feature live animals of the Americas including…large pythons, an alligator, bats, red-footed tortoise, eagles, owls and other birds of prey. Throughout the day there will also be live demonstrations and displays for everyone to enjoy!

Check out this link for all the details!

Below are a couple of photos I snapped last year…I love animals and try to capture the local wildlife whenever I can!

Okay, I know this is a Garter Snake and not too scary…but I caught it all by myself to show my son…and I felt very brave!


I took this photo of a baby hawk that jumped right up on my window! I was lucky enough to watch him on his first day attempting to fly… and by the look of his little bird face, I think it was the first time seeing a human being too!

Get your phones and cameras ready to take some photos of the amazing wildlife at the Wildlife Festival!!

Hope to see you there!

We love to help wake you up in the Morning!

We love to wake you up in the morning with the help of Starbucks Coffee!

We were excited to go out this morning and Brewed-ly Awaken another unsuspecting person for Brewed Awakening! That lucky person was Andrew Hackney. :)  He was nominated by Jill Hackney...and it's always fun to catch someone by surprise! We grabbed some fresh brewed coffee from Starbucks, amazing prizes from our sponsors and went over to  Wheatland Machine where we found our latest winner, Andrew! Congratulations Andrew!

Uh... It's my first day.


Hey it's Colin... you may remember me from the newsroom, but I'm going to be hosting the Magic Morning Show for the next little while. I've been at Golden West in Swift Current for over ten years as a news reporter and announcer, but today was my first-ever show on Magic 97! Thanks for making me feel welcome, and bearing with me while I worked through the rust this morning.

Today we had Swift Current SPCA board member and former Magic 97 Morning Show host Chris Martens in to talk about the fundraising events for the shelter this month, and he also gave me some pointers on my first day hosting the show.

Don't forget, we're qualifying our last entries for "Sounds of the Slopes" for a chance to win a winter getaway to Cypress Hills, Alberta. Carla Bakken was our lucky qualfier this morning and Tracey will enter two more listeners this afternoon, and then I'll make the draw on Friday morning.

Also, the "Brewed Awakening" is still on, where we can go to your workplace with lots of great prizes and free coffe from Starbucks at Pharmasave! We'll be out again tomorrow, so send your entries to us by clicking the Brewed Awakening link on Swift Current Online.

Talk to you again tomorrow!

Another Day for Brewed Awakening!

Another Day! Another Brewed Awakening!

We went to see Brian Fletcher at Redhead Equipment for a Brewed Awakening! We didn’t find Brian but we did find his co-worker and she happily accepted the coffee and prizes on his behalf! She let us know that Brian was on vacation. Lucky guy! Brian is also pretty lucky because he won some great prizes from our amazing sponsors! What a great way to return to work!

Carter Rigby from the Swift Current Broncos served us dinner at Boston Pizza!

The Broncos were out and ready to serve dinner for those that came to Boston Pizza Wednesday night and they were signing autographs, all while raising awareness for the Youth Emergency Shelter!

Here’s Mason and I getting a photo with our waiter, Carter Rigby! Carter dropped by our table with some Broncos hockey cards and asked if Mason would like one. He said, “Oh, I already have a set of Broncos hockey cards.” It wasn’t until Carter told him that he could autograph one right there that Mason got really excited! What a perfect way to end our dinner! So now he has an autographed card to go in with his huge Broncos collection. Go Broncos Go!

The Swift Current Broncos were there in support of the Emergency Youth Shelter with a portion from the evening going to the funding of the Youth Emergency Shelter. It’s a great cause and Mason and I were happy to be a part of it!

Thanks for the great service Swift Current Broncos!
