This day almost slipped by without my noticing. Deb handed me a Jimmy Buffet CD and said Happy Birthday. Town Radio Beausejour is 2 years old. Times flies!
If you like fiddle and old tyme country music, you’ll want to be at the Brokenhead Community Hall to see Scott Woods and his band perform their All Aboard show. You can get tickets for this great event at Beausejour Music on 3rd Street South.
Here is an interview I did with Scott when he came by the studio. Enjoy.
More info about Scott and his show can be found at Scott’s website, scottwoods.ca
You may have heard the news that Gerald Hawranik will be moving on from elected office and will not seek re-election as our MLA this October. He will continue to serve as our MLA for Lac du Bonnet Constituency until his term ends in October. Gerald Hawranik made the difficult decision to put his family first in his life, and looks forward to spending more time with them.
Gerald Hawranik was first elected to the Manitoba Legislature in a by-election in 2002, was re-elected in 2003 and again in 2007 and has served previously on the council in Beausejour. In his time at the Manitoba Legislature, Hawranik has served in a number of critic portfolios, including Aboriginal and Northern Affairs, Advanced Education & Literacy, Justice and Finance. He has also played a key role in the Manitoba PC Caucus as House Leader.
Town Radio Beausejour would like to take this opportunity to thank Gerald for his many years of public service to our community, and to wish him well in his future endeavours.

Watch Shaw TV channel 9 on
Friday Wednesday (Feb. 2nd) for a segment on Town Radio Beausejour and yours truly. Their Open Road show has segments in rotation that repeats, and we’re one of them. It’s a great chance to see what happens behind the mic. If you don’t have shaw tv cable service, you can watch online here.
I’d like to say thanks to Mark from The Review for his nice article on Town Radio. One important oops in it though, the station frequency is 93.9 FM, not 98.3.
One thing the article discussed is how I’d like to get a committee formed with community members that can help guide the station’s programming and fund-raising efforts. If you’re interested, feel free to call 268-3956, or email us here.
Also, about the picture. Please note the camera ads a couple hundred pounds *ahem*.
we’re temporarily off the air while we recover from a temporary power outage issue. battery backups have to recharge, equipment has to thaw (we lost heat too), and when all is right, we’ll be back on the air again. stay tuned!
everything thawed. atomic batteries to power. turbines to speed.
i’m relieved to say everything survived the deep freeze. we’re rocking again. sorry for that unscheduled outage.

Local Beausejour resident Colin Graves was inspired as he watched the rescue of the Chilean miners. He wrote and recorded One Man Out, and released a video to youtube.
Here is the interview I did when Colin when I was lucky enough to have him visit Town Radio.
And here is the video and song.
Twice a year, Beausejour looks forward to the the Craft Show and Sale at the Brokenhead River Community Hall. The Christmas show in the fall is the big one, with over 60 tables. Friday, November 5th, it’s open 11 am to 8pm, and Saturday, November 6th, from 10 am to 5pm.
I’m going to be there again this year with my microphone to walk the floor and give you a little taste of what you’ll find. And speaking of tastes, it’s a great place to have lunch and dinner with all the great hot food prepared by volunteers. Bring your appetite!
