Two Thirds Talk

Some music interspersed between three different 15-minute talk segments. Deal with it!

Monthly Activism

For years and years, I have performed what I consider to be an audible version of activism by producing this radio show. Indeed, I have given freely to listeners of CHLY 101.7FM hundreds and hundreds of hours of my time. Every once and a while, us programmers have to remind folks that this is the case. That CHLY doesn’t get big advertising bucks, and that CHLY asks very little money of VIU students (among the lowest in the country). If you can spare $5 a month, the station could really use it. Click here to spend a few minutes typing in the particulars, and join the thousands of other supporters of CHLY 101.7fm and the Radio Malaspina Society
