Welcome back! March just seems to be flying by. And it’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since the world went into lockdown due to Covid-19. Some people are starting to be vaccinated, and hopefully everyone will get it, so that we can work on not having to be in lockdown. Though personally I hope things don’t go back to the way they were. Being being over worked, tired, and not having time for hobbies, or family just really shouldn’t be the norm here in North America. It’s not wonder we get stressed and sick so easily. And while I’d love to find a job that would provide my family with a living wage, short of working multiple minimum wage full time jobs I have no idea how that’s going to happen. For months I have been working mostly solo on many changes for this show, and possibly the entire network, so please stay tuned! Change is never easy.

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.
