Flame On!

If you live in Swift Current and saw smoke coming from the south side of town Thursday around is why:

It appeared to be a controlled burn to get rid of the remaining structures near an abandoned house that burned down a few months ago.

The smoke clouds were seen around the city...and with any fire in Swift Current, it drew a large crowd.

No one brought marshmallows.


Rain and the Beatuy that Follows

Thanks to Living Sky Casino GM Lionel Tootoosis for sending in the pic above. Taken from the Casino's boardroom yesterday around supper time. You can see a double rainbow if you take a good look. Nothing but rain in the forecast for the next few days.

Bring on the May flowers!

It's Official: The Hunter Brothers are Going to be BIG!

While surfing facebook, I found the debut music video from Shaunavon's Hunter Brothers. On this single "Breakin' My Heart' Dusty carries the mail with most of the vocals, while the camera and director really seem to have a fondness for former Bronco captain Luke.
The video is as good as anything you'll see on Much More Music.

Five muscially talented, good looking ex hockey players. A juno is imminent...

The PERKS of Swift Current Radio

Hi guys - can you please make sure you announce today & Monday that we're getting free Taco Time lunch on Monday? It's part of the agreement for getting it free :) Thanks!

Robyn Girard
Administration Assistant
Golden West Radio, Swift Current SK

Many people wonder why I've never moved on to do radio in a larger center. Aside from alack of talent, see above for the primary reason why. Anyone who knows me knows I could eat tacos all day.

Still Alive!

The last few weeks have not provided much chance for blogging.


There has been lots of chances to blog...but also chances to enjoy beautiful weather.

I'll be in Regina this weekend to host the Provincial Bodybuilding and Figure Classic. I always enjoy a roadie to Regina.

I do keep my blackberry with me all the time and rock the twitter as much as I can. Here is what I've chronicled through "tweets".

The wind from April 6th destroys the cemetary gates at Elrose.

A trip to a pub in Saskatoon shows the pride of Morse Saskatchewan Dick Macinnis on the entertainment bill. Once upon a time, I judged a talent show that Dick won. I'll cling to that story when he's famous.

A souvenir from the PA city police in the form of a speeding ticket. It would seem that PA doesn't have much crime, and local police have lots of time to cherry pick speeders leaving town.

The Living Sky Casino has some good shows coming up over the summer months. The Sky Center is a top notch facility...I'm looking forward to taking them in. This blog will provided detailed concert recaps and dates of upcoming shows too.

Swift Current Indians baseball season is approaching too. Although The Eagle 94.1 is not broadcasting games, I'm working on a deal to webcast for the tribe. I'll keep you posted.

Stay tuned...
