End Novemb

It’s another week here in the land of The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, the program created to be a community-driven plethora of varietal contributions, and was for a long time. Now it’s just me, Ashta, screening good music, selecting, and placing in order a mixtape I think you’ll love.

HERE IT IS!!

Well, not this week.

Facebag

The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour is a one-hour anything-goes festival of sound-good. Every Wednesday morning for 10 years, CHLY 101.7FM listeners in over 40 coastal communities have been subject to the audiocratic whims of local weirdo, Ashta. From 8-9am, she privately relishes the technical reality that terrestrial radio waves saturate a portion of the Earth’s surface with frequencies of her choosing.

This week is no different. Only she’s asking you to follow the @ssvhradio account on Instagram

Independent Woman About the World

CHLY 101.7FM is like your badass next-door neighbour who unabashedly plays their music too loud and who you refer to in times of crises for advice. You switch to it when the overbearing snarky commercials of the other radio stations become too much to handle. It is at times your sonic refuge, and at other times a quaint slice of your community you can tip your head to.

The truth of the matter is that CHLY doesn’t suckle at the commercial radio teat to bolster its survival. It’s an independent woman about the world, making the ends meet where she can! Unsullied and raw, she tells it like it is, because she answers to No Man. Her health and survival depend on donations and meager levies.

In all seriousness: we cannot live in a world informed by the corporate media only. We need independent, critical-thinking views and reporting through a financially-healthy community-based media like CHLY. Only you can prevent an extinction, by ponying up a tiny bit every month. Spend the 5 minutes to sign up for an automatic monthly donation here.
