This is just my autograph picture collection. These are autographs I am luck to get thanks to my career in radio. I will also tell you a little story about the autograph to make it more personal lol. These pictures are in no peticular order as to how i like them.
Aaron Pritchett- I got this picture when he was at the casino. Had the honor of talking to him for a while and kicked back and had a couple of brewskies with him. He wrote on the picture
To: Aaron the best dj from coast to coast thanks for the spins. then signed it. Talk about giving me a radio ego haha.
Stephen Harper: Yes the number one man in the country as of this time. I recieved this one and it has a letter from his aid as well to verify that is authentic. Just needed it for if i ever decided to sell it. Yah like thats going to happen me sell my autographs haha. not bloody likely.
The Bellamy Brothers: This was a great experience, I had the privalage of bringing them on stage at the casino. I also before the concert went on their tour bus and chatted it up with the country legends and had a good time. I also got to watch their concert and man did i sing let your love flown and red neck girl. It was not pretty. Did you know that Neil Diamond wrote the song that made the Bellamy Brothers famous? Thats right he wrote let your love flow.
Jo-El Sonnier-This was a great experience. He came to the casino along with Donny Parenteau. I used to play Jo-El Sonnier when I was working at Gx94.I had a nice chat with him and his wife. Great people is all I can say. He also gave me his new cd after the show.
Willie Mack- This guy is a brillant song writer and was a nice guy. I met him again at the casino. He writes songs in country music. He may be an american but he is going to have a huge impact on country music up here in Canada.
Donny Parenteau-Donny is an awesome guy. He and his wife are expecting their first born. I will have to find out on facebook if he and his wife are proud parents yet. I still keep in touch with Donny. He is singer and fiddler and an amazing talent and all around nice guy.
Aaron Lines- Aaron is a huge name in country music here in Canada. Bet you will never guess where i met him. Did you say the casino? Man your good.I seen him in concert got this picture a tshirt and cd. He also gave me a couple of liners. We sat after the concert just kicked back and talked for about an hour. He is very down to earth. and a class act.
Duane Steele: I always heard Duane's music back in the day when I worked at the mighty Gx94. I enjoyed his music and never thought i would get to meet him. But suprize suprize he came to the casino. I talked with him after the concer and he gave me the pic and signed it. We chatted for a while. And keep in touch on face book. Man i love face book.
Jamie Warren- Jamie Warren came to the casino with Duane back in the along with Willie Mack. I talked with him after the concert as well. He gave me his pic autographed. I love being in radio is all i can say, is the people in the Canadian music industry are actually very nice. And sure are nice to us radio djs.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall-Brad I can say is an all around nice guy. Huge Rider fan. Like me.I first met Brad at a playoff game in Regina. I was down in the Green and White lounge thanks to John Lynch. I had a few beers with Brad. This was shortly after after he won the election and shortly before we won the grey cup in 2007. I emailed him, a year later to touch base with him and ask for an autograph picture and he sent it. He also wrote me a nice letter.
Emerson Drive: I have two autograph pictures from them one black and white and the other is in color. I met them through a mutal friend. My friend Shane Yellowbird who was performing with them on a Canadian tour. I was working at CKDM at the time. I took an approach to go down an bring Shane on stage cuz he was my friend and thought what the heck maybe i could do it. I was able too. Had a few beers with them and pigged out on food and got to know them. Must admit great bunch of dudes. To bad about Patrick passing on not to long after.
Keith Hampshire- This man is an all around class act. I loved his music as a kid. Never thought i would actually keep in touch with him. I talk to him on facebook. He sent me a 8x10 and his cd autographed. So I am so happy about that. I love his music. So we now keep in touch on facebook.

Shane Yellowbird- Shane I can gladly say is a good friend. He is now living in Nashville. He is a great young man and his music is doing well here in Canada. I hope he does well down in the states. I first met him when I was working at GX. I gave him a tour around the station and went to his concert. Then again we hung out in Brandon when he was there and when he comes back to Yorkton we hang out. Nice guy, hope he does really well.
