It's that time again, when the flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and the shorts are coming out of the closet.
OK, so what will keep our spirits up as things slowly come to life again? Hmmm?
Well, that would be the sounds of the only independent alternative community radio station in the GTA and beyond. (I am of course referring to CIUT 895 in Toronto)
We continue, day and night, holidays and in between days, to bring you what you can't get on any other station. Different perspectives on the world we live in. Voices who would otherwise never be heard. Music from the past and brand new sounds of the present. (We are working on getting future stuff too, but without Tesla, it's posing a wee bit of a problem)
We are the sound of your city.
But we need your help to keep this party going.
I wouldn't ask you to do what I am not willing to do myself. Have already donated to a mitt full of shows I listen to and love.
So please find it in your heart to call on April 11th at 7 pm (shameless self promotion) or any time from April 9th forward at 416-946-7800 * and let us know that alternative radio matters.
As Red Green was fond of saying "We are all in this together".
And as always, thanks for listening.
