Increasing Velocity

This week on The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, an hour-long mixtape of uninterrupted music that picks up the tempo as time goes on.

Approaching the anniversary of @ssvhradio it is fitting to mention my intent surrounding the production of this radio show and podcast. I think it’s a tiny action that could help bring musical respite, and needed information to the world. Indeed, I have given freely to listeners of CHLY 101.7FM literally 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.
