Music! Music! Music!

Excellent article about my favourite radio station (which will be celebrating its 90th birthday this year): CKUA Celebrates 20 Years Surviving the Brink with Alberta Tour

The 20 year celebration is about survival; the station went dark for five weeks twenty years ago due to ... well, they're being polite about it in the article but I remember at the time the revelations about serious mismanagement of funds for personal luxuries by some of the members of the original non-profit group. A new management group rose out of the ashes and that gang has stayed on the straight and narrow and kept the music playing ever since.

And yes, I've been donating for many years. :-)

P.S. For those of you who cuss me to the netherhells when I post tunes here and "make" you blow your music budget, it's all CKUA's fault 'cause they're the ones who play the stuff into MY ears. ;p
