What Planet Is On Vacation?!

Yep, you read it. I’m long gone man. This week and next week, you’ll be in CJTR’s capable hands without me.

Be well. I’ll be back in the CJTR studio on the 7th.

Show #185 (I think) Playlist, etc.

Hittin' the road.

Hittin’ the road.

I’m going to be taking a little vacation, friends. I’m travelling the highways and byways of the prairies, looking to learn more about life. Who knows? Maybe someday I’ll save Canada or maybe even the world*!

Until then, I still have one show to go.

Tune in today from 4:00 to 6:00 for an all-out it’s-summer-time music-fest feel-good super-show! It’s extra lucky!

So, no, I do not have a problem with the warm weather, yet. I hear you, it can be pretty nasty, especially if you have to be outside for a long time, but if you make smart choices: shade, breaks, protection, lots of water; it’s not too hard to just enjoy it while it’s here. It’ll be gone and back to horrifyingly cold before you even realize there was ever a summer.

Tune in today from 4:00 to 6:00 for what I hearby declare is a decidedly summery show. When you’re this cool, a little heat can’t do much to you. ;-]
