!earshot picks for 2007
My name is Zach Low. I work as the Music Director at CFCR 90.5fm Community Radio in Saskatoon. I co-host “Rocketship Radio” Thursday nights from 9-11pm central time with my girlfriend and CFCR Volunteer Coordinator Kristen Rutherford. Our show is an open music style playing music from all genres. I tend to lean towards newer/unreleased music and Kristen leans towards older music.
