Only Five More Sleeps

Hey everybody!

First official episode of Ruby Slippers is coming this weekend, but to keep you entertained, while the CIUT website is down  :(   here is the link to the Electric Boogaloo podcast feed.  This fun and interesting show was a mainstay on CIUT for 5 years, and despite the fact that it is no longer on the air, the music and interviews are amazing and hold up.  Never mind that my son was the host....but that's another story.

So here it is...enjoy!


See you this weekend!
