Catching up with the last 2 episodes, lots of new music on these ones. People still finding the blog from looking up news on Toni Marie in the last week. Maybe people visiting St. John’s for the Junos and catching her on the news. She’s on vacation this week for those wondering where she is on the news.
Bruins pulled off an upset, I picked Buffalo in 7. Glad Boston won. If you’re wondering Bruins-Habs can’t happen till the Conference finals. Boston gets either the Flyers or Penguins in Round 2. Either way not much traveling for the Bruins. Both teams in Pennsylvania.
Back to the music.
Joel Plaskett solo CD from a few years back before he opened for Barenaked Ladies that Tuesday in Kingston.
More music from Price Edward Island. First time on the show for The Danks, Carmen Townshend, The Cashmere Disciples and Racoon Bandit. Meaghan Blanchard to end the first hour.
Open up with a band from PEI, Haunted Hearts. Instrumental track called “The GST Cheques are here” which I had to play just for the title.
