Sherri’s Picks

October 20th, 2015 · Comments Off on Sherri’s Picks

Every month Amherst Island Radio receives music that never makes it onto the airwaves, so we are going to use “Sherri’s Picks” as a channel to highlight Artists and their music. Over the past year “Sherri’s Picks” have been a feature on the “Friday Morning Show”, now the Artist’s music will become more of a focal point of the new show by spending more time on one Artist.

There are no rules to Sherri’s Picks – it may be Canadian or not; it may be new or not; it may be country, rock, or folk.

Sherri Jensen, the host likes everything from classical to pop, to rock, so the idea is to expose us to good new music that comes our way. Great music is in the ear of the beholder.

Listen to SHERRI’S PICKS from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm every Saturday, and repeated 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm Tuesday afternoons.

Ads, Fads and Rock & Roll

July 24th, 2015 · Comments Off on Ads, Fads and Rock & Roll

Every other Monday, starting August 3rd 7pm-9pm

The Ads, Fads and Rock & Roll show is the intersection of music and marketing told through the opinionated lips of a well-seasoned marketeer – Lindsey Fair. Starting her marketing career fresh out of college by putting her resume on the side of a coffee cup (she got the job). In 2001, she started an agency called Market Me, since then has worked with many small and large brands – in fact, you’ve probably seen her work around town. For many years, Lindsey was a professor at St. Lawrence College in the School of Business and her current day job is at Queen’s. Those that know Lindsey, know that she’s never short for words as you’ll come to see during her show. And although she’s a downtown girl, she’s from a small lakeside town about the same size as the Island, so barns, cows and community radio are no stranger to her. The show will be half talk, half music with time for your stories about music, culture and advertising too. You can post your stories right on the Facebook page – after all this is a show about brand building right?

The exclusive sponsor of Ads, Fads and Rock & Roll is Paddle Canada! Facebook Icon Twitter Icon past shows
