Show #289: The Last

It’s been a great run at Regina Community Radio. For 6 years, I’ve been lucky to hit Regina airwaves and share some of my favourite music and stories with you.  I’m glad to have been able to use What Planet Is This?! to raise the percentage of jazz and funk on the radio, and happy to have a platform for all that other cool/weird/different music I’ve been playing.

Cheers to Regina Community Radio for being the platform the city needs for alternative radio and thanks for letting WPIT?! be part of it.

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for the last show.

Show #284: Radiothon 2015 Playing For Pledges + Long-Play Wednesday!

It’s Radiothon, once again, and do I ever have a treat for you!

Not only is it the last Wednesday of the month all-vinyl special, not only will I be stepping up my game even more, in the name of Radiothon, but for every pledge of $25 or more that is called in during WPIT?!, I will personally play you a live saxophone solo! No tricks, no pre-record. Actual live sax, on the air, just for you. Heck, I’ll even do it in the style you want, and requests are perfectly welcome*!

This is your big chance, folks. Want to dedicate something sultry to your sweetie? Want to get some live funk in your trunk? Call 306-525-7274 during the show (4:00 to 6:00 PM), and get just that!

Don’t forget about all those sweet, sexy gifts, draws, and prizes up for grabs!

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00, turn it way up, and call in to pledge your support to Regina’s community radio station! Make it count, y’all!

*No Kenny G, ever. Seriously. Not funny.

Show #280 +Long-Play Wednesday

Finally, it’s the last Wednesday of the month (all vinyl for two hours), and despite feeling like a long time since the last one, it also feels like time is flying on by. Did you know that Regina Public Schools begin the fall semester tomorrow? What happened to my summer? What happened to good days and live music in the sun? Don’t tell me I have to go through another winter in a few months…

You know what I always say: at least there’s good music. Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for all vinyl on the radio.
