Andrew Beckler

Born and raised in Saskatoon, I suppose I'm what you'd call a "flatlander." Before getting into radio I lived in Sydney, Australia for a few months. After my broadcast training was complete, I did an internship in North Battleford SK before moving west to work at The Peak. Rock music is my main jam (especially Canadian rock), but you'll often catch me cranking dirty electro on the weekend. I dig drumming, Frisbee, snowboarding, biking, reading, watching flicks and documentaries, anything to do with space and astronomy, the Boston Bruins, the Boston Red Sox, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Check the Afternoon Delight on The Peak, week days between 2 and 7!

Got something on your mind? An event coming up? Just want to tell me a story? Shoot me an e-mail anytime.

Beckler's Poll

So your favourite band's new album leaks a few weeks before the release date - what do you do?

Download it right away - I can't wait!

Download it, but buy a hard copy when it's released

If the band wanted you to hear it early, they'd release it. I'll wait for the official release
