Two-Fifty

Besides celebrating our 250th podcast of myboytheriotgirl, tonight’s episode also marks the beginning of the ninth season of the show on 93.3FM.  That’s right, almost exactly eight years ago I first went on the air here at CFMU, pulling from the new releases shelf with abandon and spinning a mix of independent “love songs and fight music,” along with old favourites and material from Canadians and up-and-coming female artists.

Mike joined me a year or so later, and we were the first show at CFMU to begin podcasting our shows, mostly just to test out the technology. After graduation, when we moved from daytime to the overnight spot we still fill, our podcasts became the easiest way for listeners to hear the show, and our recent relaunch of myboytheriotgirl.com has only helped listeners connect. Over the past few years we’ve jacked up our CanCon, added theme shows, and have fundraised a few hundred dollars for CFMU, despite being on between 2 and 7am.

So instead of reciting the many, many artists featured in tonight’s show (except for maybe the Rural Alberta Advantage, who will be playing Hamilton Place with Sam Roberts next week), I’d just like to say thanks for listening, and that it’s been fun filling the 93.3’s late-night airwaves with music you might not hear anywhere else on the radio dial.
