Good Day Blog Readers and Online Listeners

My apologies that you have not yet been able to hear this weeks show! I've had some wierd issues with the mp3's i grab from CJSR, so i had to go back to the station and re download them. That coupled with an abnormally busy weeknight schedule have prevented me being able to upload the show! In anycase, bear with me a day or two more and i'll have it up saturday morning!

I apologize for the delay! We Love ya!

On Todays show, we discussed how long a T-Rex's arms were, or..as one texter put it how 'SHORT' they were, then we CRAMMED the CJSR Studio full of Live musical goodness! We had the Dana Wylie Band, With Dana, her co vocalist and harmonica player Jez, Nye on the Bass and Matt rounding out the vocals and accoustic guitar! HOLY SMOKES! They were great and not only that, they drove in from the West Coast mere hours earlier to be on the show. Now thats what i call dedication!

Shoots...SCORES!


So I took a trip to Okotoks Alberta this weekend to visit my Friends Dave and Dawn! I hadn't seen them in a couple years, since they scampered off from the friendly confines of Edmonton to teach English as a Second Language in South Korea! ANYHOO It was great to see them, Okotoks is very lovely, and dudes i got SPOILED! BBQ Chicken? Delicious! Homemade Brownies? Touchdown, and not only that, Dave and Dawn actually WATCHED AN ASIAN HOCKEY LEAGUE GAME while they were in South Korea, and got a TON OF FREE STUFF! They gave me an Anyang Halla Mousepad, and some Brochures to give away, and let me touch...ALBEIT CAREFULLY, this GORGEOUS Anyang Halla Media Guide! Dawn said she'd help me contact Anyang Halla to get more free stuff too!

We'll be giving away one of the brochures on TextBot Trivia Tomorrow ( july 28th)! That and Dana Wylie on the Show is going to be ONE OF THE MOST INTENSE EPISODES EVER! Listen Live 7am to 9am mountain on WWW.CJSR.COM or On Demand RIGHT HERE

Dana Wylie Band on CJSR


Well our show with Lyra Brown went so well, we're gonna try this ' Con a Musical Guest to come onto the show' thing again. Luckily for us: We've snagged The Dana Wylie Band ( or it could just be 'Dana Wylie Band'. Thats a question we'll ask) IN THE MIDDLE OF THE THEIR TOUR YET! They've been jumpin all over Western Canada on Tour this summer, but they will brave the early morning to come perform FOR YOU!

Now not only is Dana an incredible Singer / Songwriter / Musician, and not only are her Bandmates Jeremy and Nye Awesome musicians as well, but DANA and myself, are from the same small town in Saskatchewan. Yes I am alerting their local newspaper, and yes i do expect a parade to be held in our honour ( though mostly her honour).

Dana and her band will be on the July 28th Show at 8:06am ( Mountain time) They'll play some songs, tell us some stories about whats it like to tour in Alberta, England and...Thailand? And we'll have some good folky fun!You can listen live on 88.5fm in Edmonton or stream live on www.cjsr.com! OR if you have the shoutCAST app for iphone, you can find CJSR on that too!

Check out Dana Wylie Band ( or is it THE Dana Wylie Band? ) Here and their myspace page here

See ya then!

Colin!

A Very Important Personal Discussion Will Take Place Today.

7.12.2009

Stephan Harper is Wolverine. Ummm....Huh!?!?


I have to give mad props to Co-Host Chad, who sends me an email, subject line "wtf"

In it is a link to a news item, from the Canadian Press, in which, the writer of the article, compares Prime Minister Stephan Harper, to...um...Wolverine.

Seriously? Wolverine?

This is so ridiculous on so many levels, not the least of which is the level that clearly states that EVERYONE KNOWS Stephan Harper's pop culture comparable, is in fact, The T-800 Terminator robot.

You can dig the article here. Oy Vey.
