My Little Stolen Pony

Lady Ga Ga pony?

Today is the Karen a.k.a. the Stolen Pony’s last day in the CKUT music department! She’s wonderfully managed the day-to-day runnings of the department with Amber and has been a major boss of our music collection and most importantly of this here blog, music.ckut.ca!

We’re gonna miss the sound of her hoofs on the CKUT floor boards and her whinnying about great new music. Lucky for us though she’ll be continuing to DJ from time to time, so tune in next Wednesday the 29th when the Stolen Pony fills in for The Lion’s Den. Rawr/nay!

Edited to include, uh, this here video…
