Today is the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and Robin Cooper from SAGE (Thunder Bay’s Sexuality and Gender Equity working group) joined me to talk about how private and public groups in the city are working together to provide support for the GLBT community. This show also features a visit from Victoria artist Peggy Frank, who’s traveling across the country with a 7-foot sculpture of a cocktail glass (made out of HIV medication bottles) in the back of her truck. You can find more information about Peggy’s trip and see a picture of the sculpture here. Finally, Valerie Guenther stopped by the show to discuss the Hour4Hour Thunder Bay Time Exchange, an innovative way to encourage people to give back to each other and receive help from other community members. Learn more about time banks at www.timebanks.org or thunderbay.timebanks.org, or send Valerie an email at hour4hourTBay@gmail.com. Listen to the full show by clicking here.

Camden and Andy came by this week to talk about their new album, Blacklisted Blues… lots of fun, genre-bending music in this show! Including, of course, a good deal of blues. Check out what Camden Blues is up to on his website, and listen to this weeks show by clicking here!

Last week was the final episode of one of our long time radio shows ‘Heart Beats’. Unfortunately I forgot to get the message out that it was the final episode and I think the show deserves a little promotion! So, first off my apologies to DJ Savvy for missing that, and secondly, we are going to give you all another chance to hear the final show this Friday (May 17th) from 10pm to midnight. Tune in, dance around and help us say farewell!
Also, a little bit sooner, Robin Ranger has decided to move on from his radio show and Strictly Off The Record has ended. We thank Robin for bringing such a unique show to the station and look forward to what the future holds for him!
What will surface in place of these shows? Well, Wednesday nights will see the return of Aural Fix from 8:30-10pm. DJ Miss Temperence has been away from the station for awhile but will be returning to CILU on Wednesday June 5th! As for the Friday show…that’s something you’ll have to wait and find out about! Stay tuned, and thanks for listening!!
