Click here to listen to Jessica, lead singer of Thunder Bay pop-rock band Vega, talk to Krista about bittersweet endings… talking about bittersweet, you can catch Vega’s last show ever / CD release party this Friday at Black Pirate’s Pub.
There’s also some other great local pop/rock on this episode, and a preview of the K-OS / Rich Aucoin show at the Outpost on Tuesday. Keep listening to CILU on Friday if you are still hoping to score tickets to that show!
Well, we did it!! Thank you all so much for contributing to Fund Drive 2013 and helping to keep Campus and Community Radio alive and well in Thunder Bay! This year we easily raised more money than ever before and it has been a humbling experience to see the outpouring of support from the Thunder Bay community and beyond!
I also want to thank everyone who took the time to help out by volunteering at our events, or donated prizes, or were on-air guests. And thank you to all of the programmers who put so much time and attention into their shows and into being involved. All of this together is what makes these Fund Drives, and indeed this station, so amazing.
I am in the process of getting in touch with people about their perks and they should be ready for pick up, delivery or mail out (if you live out of town) in the next couple of weeks. Some of the perks (like the mixes) should be ready by the end of the week for pickup, but I will let you know about them within the next 24 hours. There is still so much to do to wrap things up, so I apologize if I am a little slow getting to you!
Once again, I want to thank all of you who contributed to Fund Drive 2013, whether you donated money, told some folks about us, shared the campaign or all of the above, it means a whole lot to us here at LU Radio! Thank you so much!
What an amazing month! I can’t believe that there is just over a day left in Fund Drive 2013! Thank you to everyone who has helped and supported the station over the last month. We’ll be posting a list of all of our supporters, the promised ‘shout outs’ on Monday, as well as drawing names for the winners of the three grand prize draws we have. As of this writing, we are still short of the $5000 goal, but hopefully some of the last minute and fence sitting folks might be swayed to contribute to our Fund Drive. Check out www.indiegogo.com/luradio for all the details. One of the things we haven’t done here yet is to post some of the video footage that the great folks at Thunder Bay’s Shaw Cable 10 shot and have been posting on their channel about our station. We’ll be posting those below.
For those of you who missed the Wrap Party on the 28th, you missed a great time! We’d like to thank everyone who came out to support the station, as well as the volunteers who helped make the night such an amazing success! Among those volunteers were the bands who performed, Mark Potvin & The Potvin Horns, Damon Dowbak, and Robin Ranger. Also, the world Dance Centre came out to give us a terrific bollywood tinged performance. Thank you so much to everyone!
The outpouring of support from out community has been moving over the last few weeks. The staff and volunteers at LU Radio really do wish to thank you all for helping support the station, even if all you were able to do was to continue listening and told some friends about Fund Drive, that still means and helps a lot!
