Radio Topics, November 6

We are back to the usual radio show format, what with topics and all. Thanks again to all those that donated and contributed to another successful funding drive. This show raised something just shy of $700, and the station total was 112,000, more than the goal. Forgot to donate? You can still do so at www.ckcufm.com; be sure to list “Tuesday Special blend” as your show of choice. As always, we air from 7am-9am on 93.1fm in Ottawa, the aforementioned website for everyone else.

The one piece of funding drive that we have to complete is my run up Dunton Tower (left). As promised, I’ll run up one floor for every $50 dollars we raised. Just under 700 translates to 13 floors, but I’ll let you guys keep the change and go to 14. Hopefully I won’t die, because I forgot how tall it actually looks. That’ll start at 7:30.
