Clearly, you already appreciate the value of CHUO if you are reading this. But CHUO cannot provide quality content without some form of financial funding. So yep - this is the time of year when I come knocking on your virtual door or ear drums and ask you to drop a few coins in our hats. Hop The Fence will be celebrating 10 years on air in a few months. 10 years! That's 520 Fridays of programming! Just for you - For your listening pleasure! Please help keep independent music and radio alive and well by making a pledge!
Speaking of transistor radios, this week's special guest has a deep appreciation for what the magical device has bestowed upon our modern world. With his latest disc entitled 6 Volts (the size of battery required to power portable radios of days gone by), Fred Eaglesmith blends country, blues, folk and rock and roll. Tune in at 5 pm to hear all about this exceptional Canadian storytelling troubadour. He will be appearing at the Blacksheep Inn on Saturday.
Details on how to donate to CHUO:
As a token of our appreciation, for any $25 donation or more we will give you a "Friends of CHUO" card that offers discounts at many of your favorite local businesses here in Ottawa. And of course, I have loads CDs to give away in return for your donation.
Here's how you can reach me:
By email: to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how much you'd like to pledge. Include your mailing address and phone no. We will send you an invoice.
By phone: Call me today during the show from 5 to 6 p.m. (EDT) at 613-562-5968. Credit cards also accepted.
In person: You are always welcome to drop by the studio in person, take a tour, pay your pledge and pick-up your prize.
