Happy Saturday!

Not your normal Saturday by any measure… it was absolutely frantic today with so much audio coming in from the Gateway Radio Club we actually ran out of time!

I don’t know if we could actually cram more local content into 3 hours if we tried – but we had the Radio Club running around sending in a TON of audio. Here are the ones I ran out of time to play:

Speaking to local artist, Sean Muir:

I had the pleasure of welcoming Sean Muir to the studio today. He’s an unsigned local artist with a brilliant voice, and he’s pretty amazing on the guitar, too!

We discussed his musical influences, some of the local gigs Sean plays and how he wrote his song, You Are The One, about his wife. You can find out more about Sean here:

Have a listen to Sean’s live rendition of You Are The One, below:
