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*.
I did an interview with Will Cooke, Tobacco Control Coordinator for the Canadian Cancer Society regarding National Non-Smoking Week, running until January 22nd in 2011. Here is the interview we aired.
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.
I’m thrilled to have some really lovely songs from the CBC Song Quest project. Manitoba’s Kerri Latimer is featured with a song I’m an instant fan of called ‘Mountain Road’.
What is Song Quest? Well, I’d describe it the simple notion that there are uniquely Canadian stories to tell, and will to help artists tell them. From their website: “13 musicians – one from each province and territory – have been selected to add a new chapter to the Canadian songbook through the creation of 13 new original road songs.”

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.
Local business owners of Beausejour Music John and Gail are also familiar to many as The Dreamcatchers Band. We have a couple of their CDs, with one pictured here. They are mainly Country and Country Gospel, and I think John writes most of these songs They’re also good friends of Town Radio, and are happy to receive CDs on our behalf at their store on Third Street South. They’re typically open afternoons if you need some guitar strings, or are interested in music lessons.
Beausejour’s own Tracy K delves into more that one musical genre. Blues, Jazz, and really, she’s strikes me as as someone just plain loves any music. We’re lucky enough to have some songs from an upcoming CD that will be called ‘Canned Heat’, so tune in to hear those. For more info about Tracy K, visit her website at tracyk.ca.
