Welcome back! Here we are, part way through April. And we have possibly a first. This week mid show I read some listener feedback that came through our Telegram group about last weeks show. This is likely the most extensive feedback I have gotten in not in forever, in a very long time. So thank you Jack! It’s also been a crazy week of losing my 2 week retail job, and knowing I won’t be able to get EI again and being super stressed out about keeping a roof over my families head, paying bills, having food. I’m sure every musician out there who doesn’t have a “back up job” knows just what I’m talking about. But anyways, here’s this weeks show with all kinds of great music.

Thank you listeners for taking the time to listen to my show. Thank you Bands, Musicians, and promoters for sending me music. I don’t talk on the show that much about my personal life, as I’ve always felt the show was to feature and talk about Canadian Bands and musicians. It’s been 3 years now since I left a safe secure job. I was missing out so much on family time as I had been since 2011 when I starting working jobs that were mostly evenings only. I wanted time with my family. Sadly the job I left for didn’t last, and all the temp positions I managed to land didn’t turn into anything long term or permanent. Add in as I was about to start looking for work, my husband of over 20 years was diagnosed with Stage 4 Prostate Cancer. Yes STAGE 4, before the age of 50 where you are normally tested for prostate cancer. Now here I am, also dealing with Covid 19. A high risk household, and Covid. So that brings up to me starting the patreon page for this show. But, if you can’t manage a monthly Patreon donation, please consider a one time donate to his fund Help John Fight Cancer. Donations can be done anonymously. Every penny goes to bills, keeping a roof over our head and food on the table. If you can manage a monthly patreon donation the site is: IR Canada Patreon Perks are listed on the site and start with shout out Thank-you’s on the show and social media pages.
