Myself and Kathy have just returned from a fantastic four days in Saskatoon at the Potash Corp. CCMA Music Week. 

We thought we would take a moment and reflect on the good times we had. 

It all started with the kick off party on the Praire Lilly boat.

While on board we had a chance to speak with the musicians in attendance about the upcoming few days and our boat trip was topped off by a live performances from a few artists including the Hunter Brothers!

We then got up very early on Friday morning for one of my favourite events, Radio Row. It was a chance to speak with a number of performers including some new up and coming artists.
