We are very grateful for our loyal listeners of 620 CKRM, so when we have a chance to show our appreciation, we like to do it up right. To those who won their way in, it was a memorable night with great food, music, and of course, prizes. The best prize was just getting the invite. It was hard to do because so many wanted to come but we can only accommodate a certain number to keep it as personable as possible.
Big shout outs to Coors Banquet / Sask Milk / Regina Battery Depot / Watrous Mainline Motors / MDM Recordings & Vision Travel. Without any of these great sponsors our successful night would have not been possible. From 620 CKRM to you….Thank You!
I for one made some great memories and would love to share a few I captured.
Emerald Green Duo kicked off the night. They’re our 620 CKRM Proudly Saskatchewan Showcase winners from 2018. Besides Craven Country Thunder on their resume they can now add our Listener Appreciation Night.
Next up was Justin Labrash who is no stranger to the stage for his young age. Justin was also our recipient of the Fred King Memorial award in 2016.
David James was next to hit the stage. Known best for his powerful, smooth vocals, David bursted on to the country music scene in early 2013 with his debut EP release, This Must Be It. His unique blend of country rock, paired with his electrifying voice and an unrelenting pursuit of making each performance better than the last, have been generating fans and acclaim from coast to coast. David has had 3 big nominations in his short career… The 2014 CCMA Discovery Artist …2016 CCMA Rising Star & the 2016 CCMA Record Packaging. He has a very bright future in front of him.
To close out the show we went to one of the true Canadian Icons. Rising to the forefront of the Canadian Music scene in the early to mid-nineties, Charlie had a heyday at radio as he became the first Canadian artist in history to score six BDS #1 hits off of his debut album. Nine more chart topping hits would follow, and Charlie would crisscross the world headlining tours and connecting with his fans at fairs and festivals….The one the only, Charlie Major!
Charlie stuck around to help out with our Grand Prize Draws. Aileen Pilsner of Assinaboia won the Autographed guitar signed by Charlie Major and David James.
Last, but not least, was the the Sun, Sand & Surf Mexico trip that includes Charlie going along. The winner of the Sun, Sand & Surf Mexico trip that includes Charlie going along was Delinda Euteneier of Regina!!! Thanks Kristy and Sheena from Vision Travel for the great getaway!
Thanks to all involved and from your friends here at 620 CKRM thank you so much for being loyal listeners!
I have many more images, but I’m running out of memory on this site. Enjoy and steal and share as many as you would like.
