It’s May 5th! The boxing day of Star Wars day. Adam is away- something about spending a week at a cottage after finishing all his papers, but I’ll be joined by my friends Rod E.S.Q. and Simon Cameron. As always, we air from 7am to 9am on 93.1fm; www.ckcu.fm for those from away.
To celebrate Mayday, my old highschool gets itself shut down for the day. Not to be outdone, its cross town rivals do the same.
Nova Scotia is off to the polls!
Larry O’Brien pleads not guilty- courts to allow blogging.
Boycott Israel motion fails at MEC AGM.
Kid being bullied fights back, ends up being the only one being suspended. Problem: he happens to be Asian.
Goodbye to the broadcast: Don Newman to retire. In other news: Dear CBC, I also have broad collars and can develop a quirky enunciation.
Liberal Convention recap: the too long goodbye; no more delegated leadership convetions.
We’ll also almost certainly talk about Influenza A H1N1. It will probably be tasteful.
On Tuesday, I spoke with Jon Bartlett about Kelp Records 15th anniversary, how the industry has changed since 1994, and this weekends anniversary (kelpiversary?) celebrations.
Jon’s got a pretty good set of shows lined up this weekend- things kicked off last night at the Mayfair with Jim Bryson and the Acorn, but keeps going today at the WIP Gallery and the Elmdale. Tomorrow, there is a lunchhour show at the Carleton Tavern and an evening show at the Glue Pot Pub. I missed out on getting a bracelet, but will be at the Elmdale tonight.
Not able to make the shows? Boo. You can download the Kelp15 compilation here for free.
