Check the playlists next week for the FINAL RESULTS and Rankings of my Top 20 (or 21) Artists of 2020 in an #Exclusive #ONDemand show that will be uploaded for your listening pleasure on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 Thank you to all the hard working CKCUFM Staff who will be getting a much deserved break next week. I neglected to thank a few people today including none other than our new Executive Director, Kwende Kefentse - as well as Lila Elie who helped out this year, Cee Lawrence who co-hosted pre-Covid lockdown and Krista Hartman who co-hosted two weeks ago. I also want to thank YOU the listeners who supported this show, and other programs here at CKCUFM. We are here for you! There will be more big announcements coming from Tuesday Special Blend... including more new co-hosts on the first Tuesday of each month in 2021. Catch Al Wood in studio with me on the first Tuesday in January, Maria Hawkins on the first Tuesday in February, and Shawn Tavenier joins me on March 2, 2020. Finally, a big thanks once again to Christophe Elie for being a steady force and voice for Folk and Roots music here with me once a month as co-host. In 2021, Christophe will be joining me on the second Tuesday of each month, so you will hear him sooner each month and getting the latest news of interviews from his many contacts across Canada and beyond. Hope you enjoyed today's show. Have a very Merry Christmas, wear a mask, don't travel unless it's necessary, and definitely don't drink and drive, or TEXT and Drive. Thank you.
