Daybreak Again: July 21/22, 2012
They are two friends who host a show they believe in university campus radio but this summer they are doing battle with high-profile national radio shows. Am I Right?? is a comedy and interview show on CJSW, broadcast from the University of Calgary. Evan Wilson & Jesse Pruden are the co-hosts, and they have been nominated for a Canadian Comedy Award for Best Radio Show. They are up against some stiff competition as CBC Radio's This Is That with Alberta's Peter Oldring and Pat Kelly are nominated. CBC's The Debaters, is nominated twice in this category. The public is invited to vote their favourite, and so Evan and Jesse joined Russell Bowers on Daybreak to make the case for their show.
The Battle of Alberta usually takes place on the gridiron of the football field or on the ice at the hockey rink. However, on July 21, Calgary and Edmonton will fight for position on a very different track in a heated roller derby match-up between Calgary's Natural Born Thrillers as they take on Edmonton's Oil City Drill Bits. Two roller derby players joined Russell on Daybreak to preview the match. Tracy Stewart or "Crimson Shivers" as she's known on the track, represented Calgary and Mitch Hammer or "Little Bow Creep" plays for Edmonton.
Stroll down the aisle of a pet store this weekend & you may be shocked at the dizzying variety of dog food choices. Raw, Organic, Dry or Wet. There's food for different ages, activity levels, and sizes too. But can your dog taste the difference? And how much does a dog's diet affect his behaviour anyway? Stanley Coren is a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology at UBC & the author of numerous books. His latest book is called Do Dogs Dream.
For many of us, summer is the perfect time for brain candy; something quick, light, thrilling or fun. Books columnist, Erin Balser is taking a different route this summer as she has turned her back on the page-turners and is plowing her way through the classics. She spoke with Russell about why she took on this challenge.
Well, what a summer it's been so far in Alberta. There's been plenty of sunshine, for sure, but it seems like a fair amount of rain as well. Earlier in June, the province had its share of stormy weather, with one confirmed tornado and severe conditions across the province. To look at the summer weather to date, Russell spoke with Bill McMurtry, a Meteorologist with Environment Canada.
