Saint John Playlist on Local 107.3FM December 23!

Tune in to Local 107.3FM December 23 at 9:00PM to hear Chris Fudge and Chuck Teed reveal the top Saint John songs of all time. The Saint John Playlist is the result of a survey taken last year by dozens of members of the Saint John music community past and present, and represents some of the best music our area has to offer. Turn your dial to 107.3FM ( you can also hear us at Channel 949 on Rogers Cable, or online at www.localfm.ca) and take a listen!

Bad News, Good News – Saint John Playlist Update

First, the bad news – I have not been able to put a band together for the Saint John playlist (personal time constraints), so there will be no Saint John Playlist live show. Sad, but true.

Now, the good news – Chris Fudge and I are currently producing a Saint John Playlist program for Local 107.3FM. I have yet to confirm a date or time, but expect it to air between now and Christmas. Stay tuned for updates!

Mike Biggar's Christmas Spectacular tonight!

Join Mike, Brent Mason, Zwerg, Dann Downes, Laura McNeil, and Grant Heckman at the Sanctuary Theatre tonight for a musical kickoff to the Christmas season. A portion of the proceeds will go towards CBC’s Harbour Lights Campaign, so enjoy the music and support a good cause! Show starts at 8:00PM, and tickets are $12 at the door.

The Schomberg Fair Saturday at Peppers Pub

Pepper’s roof is still intact despite the Schomberg Fair’s best efforts to blow it off during their last show in the Port City. They roll through again Saturday evening, December 3rd. If you’re a fan of Elliot Brood but can man up to something a little harder, I suggest you not miss this show. Jason Ogden (Penny Blacks) opens and cover is a mere five bucks.

UPDATE: The band are also doing an in-store at Backstreet Records Saturday 1:30PM.
