Randi Boulton, featured in the above video, performs here on September 23rd.  At Fionn MacCool’s, enjoy the best of both food and drink in an atmosphere that encourages sharing good times with family and friends. Join us for lunch, dinner, late nights and live music. There’s always something happening at the Pub! Check out some of the great entertainment we have coming over the next few months.

As mentioned, on September 23rd, local favourite Randi Boulton performs.  Here’s what she says about herself:

I’m a Canadian singer/songwriter/musician whose roots run deep in Alberta. I was raised on a farm outside of Big Valley but live in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada. Music has always been a passion of mine despite having no music program at the school I attended. Besides childhood piano lessons and a couple of guitar/vocal lessons, I play by ear and basically, self-taught. I know that a good song is much more than theory and prefer to sing with pure, raw emotion. Singing is something that I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember. Often I found myself alone with my piano and guitar playing melodic sounds with a flood of thoughts running through my mind, turning into a song and putting me in a place of peace and solitude. Writing was never intentional but I always felt it came naturally. It all started when I won first prize in a talent show with my mom when I was 12. Then winning a song writing contest for Chinooks Edge School Division when I was 14. It was my first performance in front of 587 people on a grand piano playing a piece that had “won” or been recognized for something.

There are a number of Randi’s videos on the internet so take a look.  In the meantime, we really like this one because it so nicely shows off her voice and her songwriting abilities.

The 4th Line hockey podcast heads out for another shift

Published

on

If you like this, share it!

Hockey season is upon us, which makes this a great time to introduce you to Carl Landra and Joel Schnell, co-hosts of The 4th Line Podcast.

The 4th Line follows the weekly happenings in the NHL. It is the creation of a couple of friends who wanted to make a show that they would love listening to. Though they live in Calgary, neither is a Flames fan: Landra cheers for the Colorado Avalanche, and Schnell supports the Toronto Maple Leafs. In addition to listening to their show, check out the website for an active blog that brings in writers from North America and Europe to write about hockey.

Fans of the Red Deer Rebels and other Western Hockey League teams may also enjoy The 4th Line’s spinoff show, The 4th Line WHLCast, another member of the Alberta Podcast Network. Landra hosts that podcast with Seattle’s Andy Eide and Calgary’s Ryan Pike.

Landra and Schnell are very passionate about hockey, without being overly reverent, as you’ll be able to tell from their answers:

  1. What will people get out of listening to your show?

    A. The 4th Line Podcast has a no-finesse take on the NHL. In typical 4th-line fashion, we do whatever it takes to bring the best podcast. While our listeners will get our thoughts on the latest NHL news, we bring a a variety of games and regular segments that keep things fresh and fun.
  2. How did you and your co-host meet?
    A. We met over a game of poker — Carl in a Blue Jays hat, Joel in a Yankees hat. To quote Carl: “Sorry, I can never be friends with a Yankees fan.” Over 10 years later, he might be wrong.
  3. Why do you think people enjoy podcasts?
    A. Podcasts are a way to always be learning, gaining knowledge, expanding your understanding, and having a laugh. With a wide range of podcasts available, there is always something for everyone.
  4. Q. Do you have any unusual hobbies or talents that may surprise your listeners?
    Archery. Maybe that’s surprising?
  5. Q. What’s on your music playlist right now?
    A. Usually something country. A mix of Eric Church and Jason Aldean is a good start.

    Q. If you could have any guest on your show, who would you choose?
    A. Alexander Ovechkin would be great to have on the show. To know the stories behind the Stanley Cup celebration, if he can even tell them, would be a great thing to bring our listeners!
  6. What has been your favourite episode so far and why?
    A. Our Captain’s Royal Rumble episode was a turning point for us. It solidified for us that what we were doing resonated with our listeners, even if some people didn’t enjoy it.

Over the next several weeks, Todayville will introduce you to members of the Alberta Podcast Network, so you can invite even more Alberta-made podcasts into your ears! Find The 4th Line and The 4th Line WHL Cast, along with dozens of other shows, at albertapodcastnetwork.com.
