Blues Music, Football, Search Terms and a Bad Tooth

Show is taped for Friday night, did it on Monday since a few hours ago I had a tooth pulled.  Once they numb the area you don’t feel a thing.  But the needle to the roof of your mouth isn’t enjoyable.  But at least it’s over quickly.

Did have some extractions done years ago.  Before I had braces I had overcrowding to take care of.  4 pulled out then.  One was real stubborn since when he finally got it out it flew across the room.  That’s a strange sight to see.  Your mouth numb and seeing one of your teeth in mid air.  Memorable though. LOL.

Friday’s show is a lot of Blues music since the Limestone City Blues Festival is this weekend in Kingston.  Starts Thursday and runs to Sunday.  Garrett Mason from Nova Scotia is playing every night at the Tir Nan Og downtown.  He’s also part of the Saturday concert at Market Square.  Here are the sites for each.

The last 45 minutes of the show I play Ryan’s Fancy record Sea People.  Station has it on vinyl and I thought the last show of August would be a good time to play it.  Yep, for me summer is over after this weekend.  Our pre-season football broadcast is Monday Night.  Football season = Fall.

Asked Toni Marie about starting a Facebook group about Rogers in Ontario dropping NTV.  Wanted to see if they would have a problem or not with that idea.  Reply was that management would be OK with it.  So I’ll start working on that.

Probably get it ready for a launch early next week.  I’ve seen people looking up NTV and Rogers a lot lately.  When I sign in to WordPress it gives you terms every day that people use on search engines.  This just a few from today.  See a pattern?

ntv on rogers

ntv rogers
ntv newfoundland live stream
ntv change rogers
ntv on rogers cable
where is cjon ntv on rogers cable

The WPBS/Ottawa page is still up and running so maybe I’ll contact them for advice.  They won and made Rogers change their minds.  In this case it’s trying to get NTV back up across the province.  Without a doubt, a harder challenge.  But it doesn’t hurt to try.

The date given for dropping it was yesterday.  So I bet the amount of people upset is just going to rise as Newfoundlanders find out across the province.

Salt Water Music June 5th 2009 Hour 2

Brand new music to the show to start the 2nd hour.

First Scott MacLeod and his CD ‘Old Soul’.  Follow that with more new music, this time from Pat LePoidevin with his disc ‘Blue Tornadoes’.

End the show with Allison Crowe, as the story keeps going.  This week she had a motion in the Scottish parliament about what happened to her.  Before I talk about that I play ‘Disease’ from her latest CD.  Then 2 cover songs from Allison’s website.  One a Pearl Jam song, the other Nirvana.
