I really can't express how I'm feeling right now... sad, excited, nostalgic, grateful and so many more emotions. It has been an absolute honour and pleasure to host the Wednesday morning Green Eggs and Ham from 6 to 8 every week. Not only that, but to be part of the Saskatoon music scene. The local artists that have come from this city are amazing and it is great to see more and more putting together fabulous music. I'm so proud of all of the musical talent from Saskatoon.

Saskatoon has been my home for 16 years after I left my small town for "the big city" and it has provided me with so much. It is a special city and my friends from across the country agree with that.

Saskatoon, I will miss you!

All songs are either local artists or artists singing about Saskatoon. Enjoy!

For my second-last show of hosting Wednesday 6-8am green eggs and ham I took a trip down memory lane. Songs that have been instrumental in my musical development and even life development. Thanks to all the staff at CFCR over the years that have been so awesome and for making me the Volunteer of the Month. It has been an honour being a host on this awesome radio station. Next week will be my last week. It is going to be an Ode to Saskatoon. Definitely listen to it.

February 13 Playlist!

After 34 years of marriage, my folks are still together and still love each other. They also know each other well. My dad texted me before 6:00 to request a song to send out to my mom, his "main squeeze." She knew exactly what song it was - Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" (my mom's name is Margaret). It made me smile and a little sentimental. Very inspiring. Here is today's kind of V-day playlist with a playlist at the bottom:
