Announcement. BIG NEWS!!!!! for Saturdays

Hey everybody!

Although the Guelph Jazz Festival this weekend and personal business next weekend will see my absence from the airwaves, never fear.  As of September 22, this timeslot, 5-6 pm Saturdays, will the the permanent home for yours truly.  HOWEVER, it needs a name.  And believe it or not, that's a lot harder to do than putting a show together.
Any thoughts?  You have been listening for the past three months, and your input is very valuable.

This is really exciting and to be honest, rather frightening... in a good way.
Next week, another programmer will be trying out their wings so give them a chance, and come back for the official kickoff.

Thanks for your support and of course for listening.
