This is awkward. I couldn't even play this on air. Just trying to see how St. Patty's day was coming along in Dublin.

Awkward call

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The Council is now based out of Calgary and were cool enough to do a full rock block with me.

Right click on the song titles and open in new tab/window.

The boys of Joshua's Habit swung by the studio a while back, and played a terrific mini acoustic set, so here it is in it's entirety.

110th Olds fair and rodeo

This past weekend I made my debut in broadcasting the all pro Canadian pony chuck wagon races.

I have never even seen a pony chuck race before Friday, so it was a learning experience to say the least.

In 3 days I not only learnt the sport, but also how exciting it can be...especially when it came to Championship Sunday. Heading into the final day of action, there was only .08 seperating first from second for the overall win. In some glorious foresight, the heat makers ended up having the top 2 drivers in the final heat of the day. It was hyped to be the biggest race of the weekend, and it lived up to hype in every sense of the phrase. It was a dead heat between Larry Myer and Marvin Hubl with it also being the fatest time of the weekend. a blistering 56.39! one of the fastest times on the year, not only this weekend.

So Larry Myer wins the title at the 110th annual Olds fair and rodeo by .08 of a second. Epic and Awesome.

I had a blast and can only hope that Galen and Cory go on holidays for next years rodeo so I can do it again!

April Wine Review

Well last night was our first birthday bash. To think that Rock 104 is already 1 is insane to think about, but talk about celebrating it right!

The show opened at 7:30 with the winners of our rock 104 star search, Eve's Reflection, and let me tell you, they gained a lot of local fans last night after their set. The riffs that comes from Ben's amp is something that instantly gets the crowd on their side, but when Rocky revs her voice into full rock mode, you could see the heads turning of people not paying attention, into wide eyes and head bopping.

Eve's Reflection delievered a performance that set the stage for an amazing night.

Shortly after 8:30 April Wine took the stage and kicked off a jaw dropping set of hits.

I got a set list after the show, but this is not exactly what they played...Myles decided to switch a few songs mid set, but I was already in "full party" mode, so I am not sure what exactly was changed. but here's the list I have -

Wanna Rock
Big city girls
Say Hello
Enough is enough
Lady run, lady hide
Last time I ever sing the blues
Tellin me lies
All over town
Drop your guns
Tonite is a wonderful time
Just between you and me
Anything you want, you got it
Sign of the Gypsy Queen

I like to Rock

It was an incredible show, and I can tell you for a fact that the band had a blast being here. Myles hardly ever stops and really talks to the audience, and he did last night. They were so impressed with the way we filled the grandstand, and the way they were treated.

Thanks to everyone for supporting us at Rock 104!

People are already asking about our 2nd birthday bash...
