Tia Daniels and Dwain Lingenfelter Have One Thing In Common

Both of them are looking for work. Of the two, Daniels is the more unexpected — up until today she was the promotions director of Big Dog 92.7, Astral’s country music station which has supplanted CKRM as Regina’s major country music source (and if that isn’t a big achievement on her watch, especially considering how Harvard/the Hill family seem to have their fingers in every pie in this city, I don’t know what is).

Apart from the usual Facebook page/Twitter feed, much of Daniels’ internet presence has gone down the memory hole: her web pages at Big Dog’s website have been 404’ed, but she still has her blog which is more than eminently readable.

Strange thing: she is a member of Consort High School’s Class of 1990. In the summer and fall of 1990, I edited the Castor Advance, a small town weekly newspaper in Castor, Alberta, about 30 miles away. Small world.

Not likely she would ever hang with the hipster wanna-bes in prairie dog, but hey, Tia, chin up. If I can get a job, imagine what the future will hold for someone with actual talent.

  1. @Stephen… don’t deny your own not inconsiderable talents.

    I still consider your piece on the Rolling Stones concert and what it illuminated about the changing nature of Saskatchewan to be one of the best pieces of writing I’ve read in years.

  2. Dwaino down the draino??
    That’s a new one.

    But I have to agree with Stephen on this one Brian M. Let’s keep this a tad more professional please and thanks.
