The Transmitter is dead. Long live the Transmitter!!! Ruby Slippers for April 11/14
Not only is this week our fundraising membership drive but last Sunday the transmitter was declared beyond repair. Sooo....all the money we raise will go into buying a new digital replacement. We are currently using a rental to replace the power amp that has been keeping the station on the dial in Toronto, and tomorrow, there ought to be about 60-70 % coverage of our usual broadcast range.
Good fix for now, but temporary and a fraction of the wattage we are licenced for.
This show is all about connecting with the listening audience and hopefully getting the support we need to make things right. To this end, the playlist this week is fun, loud and full of energy. (Don't I always say that?) Rock on! Dance your face off! And please make a donation to the cause.
