I got a really cool compliment this weekend - someone wrote a country song just so they could be a part of Made in Alberta again. That was so cool to hear! I love his rootsy rock music as is, but the fact this guy went out of his way to write a whole other genre was amazing! It made my heart grow three times bigger! Haha! 

Made in Alberta was tough to get into - I have told people this - when I started doing it, I had no idea what I was doing, who any of these people were, and it frustrated me to the point of almost pulling the plug on it, but man, am I glad I pushed through. 

This isn't a post about "Oh look what I've done..." or a "look how many people I can talk to..." this is a post to spotlight how much talent and the quality of talent we have in and from Alberta.

Being a smaller market radio station we are able to support local music, and 99.7 Sun Country and myself (in general and on Made in Alberta),we love being able to be a platform for local talent.
