Magic 97.1

Shake It Off

What started out as an Amazing Race Challenge turned into a Taylor Swift Dance Off in the streets of downtown Swift Current Monday afternoon. The team was sent around the community to complete challenges by participating businesses.

One of the challenges was to Shake It Off where they danced on Central Ave which you can see here was a fun challenge for the team and spectators alike.

The SC Broncos will be playing at home tomorrow night for Halloween, kids dressed up get in for FREE!

Happy Halloween!



This photo, with red mittens around the clock on the Peace Tower of the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa, has gone viral this morning on social media.

We remember Cpl Nathan Cirillo, who was shot at the National War Memorial in Ottawa yesterday morning. We stand together as Canadians who are proud to come together during this horrific incident. We are the true, north, strong, and free.

Rest in peace, Nathan Cirillo. Thank you for your service to our country.

Hi, I'm Tracey! The Introduction

Hi everyone! I guess you could call this my “Introduction to Swift Current” blog. My name is Tracey and because this is my first blog for Magic 97, I'd like make sure to do it right! Look, I've even added a couple of photos of myself! Now when you see me around town, you can go, “Hey, look that's the new girl from Magic 97!” Hopefully you'll recognize me though because I probably won't be wearing the headphones...BUT there IS a VERY good possibility that I'll be wearing the toque!


I am so happy to be a part of the Magic 97 team!! WOOP! WOOP!  I'll give you a little run down of “Me”. I grew up around here and went to High School at the Comp. Then I moved away to go to Art school. I stayed in Medicine Hat for a few years...but with life's twists and turns, I made the decision to move back to Swift Current! I'm happy to be closer to family. Yay Family!

I have to say, I'm enjoying the happy, friendly faces in Swift Current! What I've really noticed is just how friendly and helpful people are! Okay, here's an example of how helpful people are here in Swift Current...I was walking out of a store and my “To Do” list flew out of my hands. I could have let it go but I had stuff on there! At any rate, I decided to chase my little piece of paper across the street. Of course the paper didn't stop and kept flying around as soon as I got close to it. I'm sure you've all had this happen. Anyway, this very nice man driving down the street must of saw me running after it and took time to actually pull over, jump out of his truck and grab the piece of paper for me! I quickly got in a “Thank You so much” before he jumped back in his truck and drove off. So nice! Right?! Anyway, it's those friendly gestures from total strangers that makes it great to be back home!

So if you see me around, on the street or chasing after a piece of paper, make sure to say Hi! (maybe even help me chase down my paper?) See ya around people...and keep up the Random Acts of Kindness Swift Current!

Tuesday disguised as a Monday

Happy Thanksgiving! Did you get stuffed with stuffing, and all the other trimmings of a turkey dinner?


It's okay. Turkey comas happen to us all - we gorge ourselves... what, 3 times per year? It's all good! But how do you combat the post-apocalyptic effects of turkey dinners?


Fortunately - the City of Swift Current's Community Services Department has got our backs in the activity department! So if you're feeling a bit sluggish - hit them up for some ways to get back into your skinny jeans comfortably!

In Your Face!

What an honor to have Juno award winner Mitch Dorge in the studio yesterday.


Mitch, drummer with the Crash Test Dummies, is in Swift Current all week to talk about making informed life decision with local students.

Presented by The Co-operators, his "In Your Face and Interactive" presentation takes Mitch's unique, thought-provoking talk about responsible decision making to schools across Canada.

The presentation is tailored to the needs of participating schools, and topics can range from drug & alcohol awareness, peer pressure, driving safety, bullying, and goal setting.

His schedule for the rest of the week is as follows:
Wednesday, Sept 24 - 9-11am at Ecole Centennial School
Wednesday, Sept 24 - 1-3pm at Maverick School

Friday, Sept 26 - 10:30am-12pm & 1:50-3:20pm at the Comp

A lengthy (and entertaining!) interview between Mitch & Candace aired on Magic 97 yesterday - but one of the completely unexpected parts of the interview, pertaining to the Crash Test Dummies, can be heard here.

On tap for today...

Fall into Christmas is fast approaching. We have prizes to give away from a show vendor this morning and every weekday morning until the show gets underway at Kinetic Park.
