Two minds are always better than one, amirite?

Changing formats, giving up some control, I have officially become part of a radio two-some on Edmonton’s CJSR.

No program name, no DJ names. Just two radio kids exploring the mysteries of the world….

This weeks exploration:

Artist – Album – Track Title   * = Canadian

*Ladyhawk – Ladyhawk LP – Boy, You’ve Got Another Thing Coming

*The Most Serene Republic – Underwater Cinematographer – Proposition 61

The Decemberists – 5 Songs – I Don’t Mind

Fleetwood Mac – Fleetwood Mac Live LP – It’s Not That Funny

*Axis of Conversation – All We Make is Enemies – All We Make is Enemies

*Do Make Say Think – Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secert Hymn – Outer, Inner and Secret.

Son Volt – American Central Bust – Down to the Wire

Talking Heads – Little Creatures – Road to Nowhere

*The Lovely Feathers – Fad – Fantasy of the Lot

Thom York – The Eraser – The Eraser

Next program:

Sunday 19th, 2009 2pm – 4pm MST on CJSR 88.5 or THE INTERNET

After a month and 1/2 of CJSR’s music director Aaron Levin’s desperate phone calls, I have finally consented to bringing my slick style to Edmonton’s air waves.

(truth – I just followed him around until he couldn’t take it anymore, plus, I can fill out SOCAN charts properly…)

Long story short, I will be back on air, this time in Alberta’s Capitol city.  No set show date, but Aaron did say that if I plugged his super rad, all-star side business (Buy shit from Cantor Records!) he would “make a sweet spot happen”* For the time being, inconsistent show times is the name of the game.

Get out those stylo pens and your moleskins. Current program times lined up:

Friday (June 19th) 11pm-midnight MST

Monday (June 22nd) 6pm-7pm MST

Monday (June 29th) 6pm-7pm MST

Get your requests in early, ’cause I am going RECORD SHOPPING this weekend.

As always, contact me on air with requests or for a friendly convo via twitter (JProssa) or the handy dandy blog comment box.

*He did not actually promise anythingof the sort, but surely a little sucking up doesn’t hurt.

Well, I am officially residing in the great capitol of Alberta, Edmonton and having a grand ‘ole time. Srlsy. Grand.This city is treating me great thus far and I have met a bevy of fantastic people.

However, I rather miss having a whole hour and a half to dominate the airwaves with my bad self. I can only hope the 6pm-7:30pm is rip roaring awesome and not subjected to the evils of boring pre programmed digital play lists.

I will be posting my last playlist ASAP, basically as soon as posting it won’t get me fired my job, which I am at right now. This blog post may beget some caning even.

I am still waiting by the phone for CKUA or CBC Edmonton to call me begging for me to join their talented roster to radio folk, but since offers are slow coming in I will be hitting the streets very soon to see what I can fandangle in Edmonton’s radio culture.

Until the future,

Miss JP

Radio friends, fans and distant stalkers.

Some sad news must grace this blog from time to time, and this is one of those times.

I will be leaving CKXU….for a few months anyways. I am making my way up north to the land of the Gold Rush, Bowls of Sugar and Blackbyrds.

Which means I will be taking a leave of absence from my weekly CKXU program, Random Nation…. which means tonight’s program will be my second to last.

As usual, I will bring to your ears some wicked indie rock, both old and new but you I ask to give me a little something back. A request, maybe two! Feel free to hit me up here, in the comment box below. Leave a band you would like to hear and I will make those records glow.

I will be attempting to con CJSR into allowing me on air, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming announcements.

Love,

Miss JP
