Thank You

Wow, I can't believe this is it. After seven years at XL 96 and nearly 8 with Newcap Broadcasting, the time is right for me and my family to take on a new challenge in Ontario. While we are excited about what lies ahead, it has been a hard day facing the fact that I am leaving my home here in Moncton and here at XL 96. I truly believe this is the best place in the world. It's a community that cares, and that is hard to come by. The people here always band together to look after others, no matter what. That is truly a precious thing and it's been a beautiful thing to watch. It's been a real thrill for me to work here, near my home town and with family and friends watching and listening. We have the greatest listeners in the whole world here, you have looked out for us and supported us, through the fun, but also through some difficult times. Words can't express my gratitude. I've been blessed to work with some of the best people in the business during my years here in Moncton. Thanks to each and every one of you. You've made me a better person and a better broadcaster. Terry, you are a rock, you've stuck by me, put up with me and made the Big Breakfast what it is. I can never thank you enough. My family. You guys are the most important people in the whole world to me. Thanks for loving and supporting me always. Now you can stop worrying that I'm going to spill all your secrets on the air. Gosh, I really do feel like I've just won an Oscar or something and this is the speech. Cue the music.....

Thanks so much to everyone who "came on board" with Mobile One and our Sponsor a Soup campaign. Over 2 tonnes of soup was sponsored for the mobile soup kitchen, and it, along with the soup made by the Men's Progress Club, the Knights of Columbus, and other community groups, should help Mobile One feed people throughout the winter. One of the many community groups to get together to make a donation was the Sunny Brae Lions Club. They came in to present Terry with a cheque for their donation. Thanks again to everyone, each donation means the world. Mobile One serves over 100 people each day, 6 days a week, 23% are children under 12.

Swift Surprise!

I got this great email and thought I'd pass it along. What an amazing surprise!

"On occasion I travel to Halifax on business so when we heard Brad Paisley was coming to Halifax with Rodney Atkins and Taylor Swift we purchased tickets the day they went on sale. My daughters LOVE Taylor Swift and know the words to every song she sings, as well as Rodney Atkins & Brad Paisley's songs! Big Country Fans!

This past Sunday we told them to pack a suitcase as mom had to go to work in Halifax for the night and they were going to be "jigging" school and coming with me so they can tour Halifax with their dad while I was working. We left around noon on Monday, the night of the concert, got to the hotel, went for a quick swim and then for a quick walk to get supper - all this time dad & I were watching the clock so we wouldn't be late. The girls wanted to go for another walk in the pedways and along the boardwalk so we told them after supper because we had to go back to the hotel room for a few minutes as I had forgotten something. We went to the room and then headed out for our "walk" - or so they thought! Along the way we were meeting allot of people so we asked which way to go to the concert (knowing we knew where to go - the girls we ahead of dad who did the asking) - we turned around and went up the elevator with another couple. They asked my girls, "So, who are you here to see?". Neither of my girls knew how to answer him so we told him, they have no idea why we are here, they think I'm working in the morning. The guy in the elevator didn't know what to say or understand at that time we had played a trick on my girls.

Once out of the elevator I heard the lady say, "I'd like to see their faces when they find out who they are here to see." We entered the Metro Center and dad pulled out the tickets to go in, the girls still not knowing who was playing. Once seated, we showed them the ticket with Brad Paisley's name on it and they still didn't know who was playing with him. No one around us was even talking about who the opening acts were. When we told them Taylor Swift was playing, they both screamed and were so excited and appreciative we were thanked the whole night and the whole trip home to Riverview. They sang the whole night long, along with screaming like everyone else, and had a wonderful time attending their first concert.

The other funny part about it is, on the drive to Halifax they were talking about what the word "gullible" meant (I have no idea why) - well on Tuesday morning in the hotel room I told them, you asked what gullible meant, and we said "you guys" - we tricked you good! We got them good!"

Brad Paisley in Saint John!

By all accounts, it was a fantastic show last night at Harbour Station. Taylor Swift, who's album just went gold here in Canada, and Rodney Atkins kicked off the show to the delight of the crowd. But Brad knocked 'em dead and put on one of the best shows most of our listeners who were there said they've ever seen. The threesome played to a sold out crowd of very enthusiastic country fans. Thanks so much to Cindy and Rodney Donaher for the pictures from the show.
