Joyce Seamone returns to radio

by Adam Jacobs


Joyce Seamone, a former country music star, is hosting her own specialty radio show out of Sackville.
 The first lady of Canadian country music has been given her own radio show.

 Maplewood-born Joyce Seamone, perhaps best known for her 1972 hit "Testing 1-2-3" is hosting a one-hour specialty show titled "Country from the Heart."

 "I feel like I have come full circle," the current Pinehurst resident said. "Here I am, once again, although you can't see me, but you will be able to picture me in your minds, with a set of headphones on, playing music for you that comes from my heart."

 The show debuted on April 8 on the new Sackville Special Events radio station and can be heard on Thursdays at 8 p.m. on 106.9 FM on the dial or at http://www.sackvilleradio.ca.

 The spotlight is nothing new for Ms Seamone, who once performed for Prime Minister John Diefenbaker, hosted her own local television show and had a number 1 hit on the Canadian country music charts.

 "I have always loved music from the time I grew up listening to the radio, watching early TV variety shows that featured musical performances and performing locally in church and school musical activities," Ms Seamone said.

 Right now the format for the new station features everything from classic country, to bluegrass, to Newfoundland music and some of today's country as well.

 As for her show, right now it is dedicated to music only, but that will likely change.

 "In the future during the show I will also be doing some interviews," she said. "Now I am looking forward to my stint as a DJ bringing to you my style of country music."
