As always, I'm blogging my Christmas card letter, so folks whom I may have drifted away from who may be googling my name one night can also know how I'm doing.
‘Tis I, Mark Cappis, once again including a nice little form letter in this Christmas card to let you know what’s been going in my life, especially in this year, 2014.
As always, writing this letter is difficult for me, as I can’t figure out enough ways to say “nothing.” My life is still rather quiet and uneventful. I get up, go to work, come home, watch a lot of TV. That’s it. My apartment doesn’t allow pets, so I can’t even get “crazy cat guy” on the go.
Work is still going fine. As you may recall from last year’s letter, I am the afternoon show host and music director for 97.9 the Range in Westlock, Alberta. (“Music director” at a radio station is the guy who actually picks the music the station plays, for those not in the biz.) Well, there has been a notable addition to my duties. In my little cluster of radio stations, 93.5 Prairie-FM in High Prairie switched to country music. So the Company said, “Since we’ve already got a perfectly good music director for country music, let’s have him do both stations!” So I do the music for both 97.9 the Range and 93.5 Prairie-FM now.
Not much else of note happened. I won a contest and got to be on TV. CTV Edmonton was having a contest to give away tickets to the Indiana Jones exhibit at the Telus World of Science. For the heck of it, I entered, and for the heck of it, I won. Part of the prize was I got to go sit in the studio audience for CTV Edmonton Morning Live’s special Indiana Jones show. That was a lot of fun! Haven’t used my free tickets to go see the exhibit yet, but I’ll probably do that first thing in January.
And I’m still quite active on the social networks, if you ever want or crave more frequent updates as to the nothing that goes on in my life. I finally brought back my podcast, too. That ran last year from January until June, when things started getting busy at work. Looks like things will be getting quiet again in January, so I’ll be able to launch the 2015 series really soon.
As always, my social media map:

I’m on LinkedIn, too, but I’m still new to that and figuring it out. And I got my Ello invite the other day, but I’m not there yet.
Oh, and I got a new printer, too. Which is why you’ll see this card has a nice printed label instead of being addressed by hand. I may have lost some of that hand-made quality, but my wrists are thanking me.
And that’s all from my tiny apartment in Westlock, Alberta. Have yourself a Merry Christmas, and all the best in 2015.
