If you didn’t know it, CHLY is listener-funded and the hosts are volunteers. Listener-funded means that since we aren’t taking major media conglomerate money, we aren’t beholden to supporting a consumer-capitalist narrative like all the other radio stations in this area are.

Every now and then, we ask you to pitch in some dollars so we can keep bringing you the independent content a well-informed public deserves.

We’ve made it easy to set up online, it only takes a few minutes.

We cannot live in a world informed by the corporate media only. We need independant, critical-thinking views and reporting through a financially-healthy community-based media like CHLY.

Please consider setting up a small monthly gift at chly.ca/donate


As a reward for your generous spirit, here is a photo of me relishing in the possibility of doing my show for another 9 years on CHLY 101.7FM

April Cools

This week on the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour. Some Canadian content, and some favourite songs from Darryl Graham’s facebook friends. All of this flanked by four-song sets by artists I just could not get enough of. My favourite song this week is easily “I Am Steve” by Hey Steve. Holy so good.

Strange Wonderful

The Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, every Wednesday morning airs live to about 1.5 million human beings, a few billion notable sea creatures, and literally trillions of bacterium. Yes, every one of these living organisms will be surrounded with the invisible frequency transmission of these songs via terrestrial radio giant CHLY 101.7 FM at 8am PST on Wednesday.

The particular music which makes up this week’s signal-shower is very dear to me. Some of it is strange. Some of it is not. All of it is wonderful.

Special mention goes out to someone named Ashton Freeman, on whom I have fervently mortgaged my home in order to place irresponsible bets on their imminent musical success.
