Stoke the Folk is back! And L-A is also back on Window of Opportunity

L-A in a Paris mood...






Hi! Happy New Year.

While some believe 2012 is a year of endings (ie Mayan calendar ending in December), I believe 2012 is a year for new beginnings. At least it is for me. Had some good and bad things happen during the Christmas break – a CBC music internship (good) and a complete hard drive/backup drive crash (bad). But I do have a chance to start over in many ways. So while my laptop hard drive is in the hands of a lab for six weeks, I start over with my radio portfolio at CKDJ, AIR Algonquin and CKCU – and maybe more stations in the near future.

I also had a lot of fun doing a special feature for Amanda Putz on CBC Radio 1 Bandwidth on December 23. So I plan to continue to do something special for Stoke the Folk at least every two weeks… or whenever folk releases come out.

I thoroughly enjoyed being back on CKCU’s Window of Opportunity on January 6th.  I hope to be on that show biweekly as I can.  I’m still going to share the show with co-host and husband Tony while I’m at Algonquin this semester.

Here is the January 6, 2012 Window of Opportunity playlist:

  1. Wonderful article! I wish I had your insight on this topic and could write as well as you. I hope many people get the opportunity to enjoy this great content.

  2. Jackie, I’m sure you’re own writing will develop. Just keep at it! Write about what you know and love. It will grow from there. And if you like my blog (and would like to listen to me on the radio), tell your friends!

  3. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say fantastic blog!
