Coming Up On July 6th & 7th:
DAN IS BACK!!
Our friend Dominique Liboiron paddled more than 5,000 kilometres in a canoe, carrying his uncle's ashes from Eastend, Saskatchewan to New Orleans.
After Dominique Liboiron's Uncle Mitch died of a heart attack in 2010, Liboiron decided to honour his life in a special way and he paddled through Canada and then 13 U.S. states. He began his trip in June 2012 and arrived in late January 2013.
Dominique has now been nominated for Canoe and Kayak magazine's prestigious Spirit of Adventure Award which is given to this person who most inspires people to pursue outdoor adventures.
(Voting ends June 30th, 2013)
Now that he has been back on land in Western Canada for a few months, Dom was on Saskatchewan Weekend again to discuss the Awards and catch up with Dan about what life has been like since the trip. Since Dom was in Medicine Hat, he also offers an update on what conditions are like in the city as the flood waters from Calgary move toward it.
With The Stanley Cup Finals underway, the CFL Season set to begin, the NBA Finals over, and the Blue Jays on a 9 game winning streak there are a lot of things to discuss in The Cheap Seats this week, as Adam Hunter and Dan Reynish welcome new contributor Jenna Leith.
He explains to Dan what that was like, what the city is like right now, and how people there are feeling.
Coming Up On June 22nd & 23rd:

Dan received an email a few weeks ago from John Jones at Warner Music Canada asking if he had some time for John to drop by the CBC Broadcast Centre with a performer recently signed to the label named Brett Kissel.
The request was for Brett to stop by and play the first single off his new album only for Dan, but Dan suggested he come by and play it for everyone.
Coming Up On June 15th & 16th:
