Expired CDs!

OK, they didn’t really expire. We just said that on our April 1st news broadcast where we advised you could recycle them with CKBJ-FM. CDs made before 1990 will all still work of course. But the advice remains the same!

It’s quite possible you have a lot of CDs you never play hanging around. You can give them new life by donating them to Town Radio Beausejour, CKBJ-FM. Music can get expensive over here, and anything you donated would be received with appreciation. And the bonus is, we’ll be playing music you actually like. It used to be *your* music after all.

If you’d like to donate some CDs, call our answering machine at 204-268-3956 and leave a message on how to pick them up or to contact you. Or you can email info at townradio.ca (replace the at with the @ of course).

Happy Birthday CKBJ-FM

This day almost slipped by without my noticing. Deb handed me a Jimmy Buffet CD and said Happy Birthday.  Town Radio Beausejour is 2 years old. Times flies!

Thanks Gerald

You may have heard the news that Gerald Hawranik will be moving on from elected office and will not seek re-election as our MLA this October. He will continue to serve as our MLA for Lac du Bonnet Constituency until his term ends in October. Gerald Hawranik made the difficult decision to put his family first in his life, and looks forward to spending more time with them.

Gerald Hawranik was first elected to the Manitoba Legislature in a by-election in 2002, was re-elected in 2003 and again in 2007 and has served previously on the council in Beausejour. In his time at the Manitoba Legislature, Hawranik has served in a number of critic portfolios, including Aboriginal and Northern Affairs, Advanced Education & Literacy, Justice and Finance.  He has also played a key role in the Manitoba PC Caucus as House Leader.

Town Radio Beausejour would like to take this opportunity to thank Gerald for his many years of public service to our community, and to wish him well in his future endeavours.

Norman Voss on his Beausejour song

Here is the interview I did with Norman Voss, and John & Gail at Beausejour Music about the song he wrote and recorded titled Beausejour. Can you guess what it’s about? :) I don’t have the actual song linked, but you can tune in to 93.9 FM to hear it. So when Norm introduces it at the end, that’s where the interview ends.
