Daniel Romano: Appearing at the NAC Fourth Stage tomorrow night to showcase his latest album, If I've Only One Time Askin'. This multidisciplinary craftsman and artist may have started his career in punk bands, but his passion now rests in traditional country music heralded by the likes of George Jones and Willie Nelson.
Tomorrow’s Grind: An important community initiative to help raise funds for the victims of the recent fire on Somerset Street, which will take place at Dundonald Park on Sunday, November 8 from 11am to 6pm. The event will feature an outdoor concert with local acoustic performers & spoken word poets, face painting and balloon animals for children, a clothing drive & a bottle drive. A GoFundMe account has been set up with a 10k goal. That's a great example of communities joining together to help each other out!
On that note, I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who donated to the CHUO Funding Drive. Your support to keep interesting, independent, non-commercial programming on the air is invaluable. We still have not quite attained our goal. There is still time to donate if you haven't done so already. It's easy! Just go to CHUO.fm
Also on deck, we'll be spinning new material from Oliver Swain who will be at the Raw Sugar Cafe on Monday night. He has a new album, Never More Together. Expect whimsical, spiritual, and socially conscious "chamber folk odyssey" from this unique songwriter.
Find us at 89.1 FM in Ottawa or online at CHUO.fm. You can also find us on iTunes radio under College stations and on #943 on Rogers HD.
