From October 26th-29th, CJNU held its Fourth Annual Pledge Weekend – a celebration of everything the radio station is, does, and can be – and the one time during the year when the phone lines are thrown open, and the community is asked to give back to ‘the little station that could’. CJNU is still on the air largely thanks to direct listener support – and that support has been truly overwhelming. Fifty-seven hours of special programming later, and we’ve smashed through our fundraising target of $40,000 – currently sitting at $44,237 and rising. We couldn’t be more grateful for the vote of confidence we’ve been given by our listeners. Continue reading CJNU Fundraiser success!→

The Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada is one of those rare gems that tells us the stories of the bravery and perseverance of bush pilots opening up the North and helps us to fully understand the sacrifices necessary to connect cultures, promote trade and economic prosperity and explore our planet in new ways. The stories are compelling and must be told and re-told, not only to honour those from the past, but inspire those who will secure our future.

Little Shop of Horrors, Rainbow Stage’s first production of the summer season could best be described as a rock horror comedy musical. This delightful production sprang from Roger Corman’s 1960 film of the same name. Many of you may be familiar with the 1986 remake which starred Rick Moranis and Steve Martin.
Our nation is celebrating its 150th birthday tomorrow, and I for one will be doing it with gusto. Too often we Canadians sit on our hands when it comes to patriotism. We certainly are not as demonstrative as our neighbours to the south. Sometimes this isn’t a bad thing, but I truly feel we should be showing our appreciation at this special time and, yes, with some noise. I chose my noisemakers to be my flowers and flags. With a bit of spray paint and some selective plant purchases, I turned my patio into a sea of red and white. Continue reading Sharing true patriot love during our celebratory year→
