RADIO-RELATED STUFF

So Milt Johnston died in a hotel room on an island off Venezuela three years ago. Odd there was no mention of it in the trade.

Caught some of that new CBC show "Unreserved" last week. The program certainly doesn't let the grass grow under it's feet.

Have tuned into a bit of Big FM, CFMK Kingston's latest format tweek. Not so sure what's really changed from it's previous few formats.

MEDIA-RELATED STUFF

Last night's episodes of "The Morgan Show" and "The Jordan Rich Show" were absolutely whizbangers. WBZ has got to be one of the few stations left in North America that both cares about what it puts on the air and it's history and last night sure proved it.

Watched one of the newer episodes of "Beavis and Butt-head" on YouTube and actually really enjoyed it.

I love Phoebe Judge's voice.

Cool how My FM has a religious program on Sunday mornings.

THIS SUNDAY'S OPEN MIC AT MADOC ARTS CENTRE CANCELLED

Hello To All
Hope you are getting a chance to enjoy the last remnants of summer, and getting ready for the beautiful fall colours that are just around the corner. Before we know it the Christmas tunes will be playing and there will be snow upon the ground.
I am sorry to announce that our final Support the Troops open mic for 2015, scheduled for next Sunday has been cancelled. I am heading to Eastern Canada for six weeks with my departure being early Sunday morning.
With this said, our next Support the Troops Open Mic event is scheduled for the 3rd Sunday in January, 17 January 2016 at 1:00 p.m.
I am working on booking the Art Centre Hastings several times during the November and December period to hold a very casual music circle. These could be on week days afternoons or evenings depending on your preference. Send me an email if your are interested and share your ideas. let me know if you have certain times or days that you are more interested/available.
I want to thank you for your dedication to the Support the Troops initiative and look forward to seeing and playing music with you in the future.
Sincerely
Cliff Andrews

KIM DAVIS AND SOME MORE ARGUMENTS AGAINST SAME SEX MARRIAGE

With same sex marriage legislation, governments have turned marriage from a social pracctice into a right. Eventually, you will see a heterosexual guy take his girlfriend to court because she didn't want to marry him. He will argue it is his right to get married and that she is the one he wants, he being unwilling to go out looking anymore.

It will do more to turn men into sperm donors and women into broodmares.

Employees will no longer have any rights whatsoever. As we are seeing in the Kim Davis battle, the dictates of one's job will become more important than one's religious or nmoral convictions. Thus, in the future, you will see a boss proposition his female employee, promising advancement if she does what he asks. The woman will object. The boss will ask why. The woman will respond it violates her morals. The boss will cite Kim Davis and the woman will be forced to do what the boss wants.

"Because News" with Gavin Crawford: more CBC corporate programming whore bastards.

Was not impressed with CBC's summer line-up this year at all.

Holy moley, Lisa Charlieboy said "like," in the middle of a question she had probably prepared before the interview in question.

Been having a lot of good upstate New York dx lately, especially enjoying WRUR and WAIO 95.1.

Speaking of Radio 95.1, it was so great to call Billy Vetori last Sunday.

Cool Hilary McLeod is reading her books on 91x now.

Have been listening to a fair amount of CKOL the past week. Their sound has really improgved a lot.
