- Hear Your Voice on CJSW Celebrating 18,000 Watts!
Sing it loud and sing it clear; this coming Thursday, CJSW is jumping from 4,000 to 18,000 watts! Because of this, until the end of July Industry Canada requires us to make a special announcement about our signal every 15 minutes. That’s over 2000 special announcements! To keep us sounding like our usual fresh selves, we have set up a special hotline for listeners to call and record the announcement in their own voice. It's easy to be one of those voices, just follow these instructions.
- From the Archives - W.O. Mitchell
"From the Archives" is a new series highlighting some of CJSW’s best spoken word radio from throughout our history.
On this episode, we dig into the CJSW vaults to bring you two interviews with late Canadian literary legend W.O. Mitchell, best known for his novel "Who has seen the Wind", and his short story collection "Jake and the Kid".
- Don't Smile Show 3
Comedians and comics! This month Sarah invents some pretty fantastic new characters with Calgary comedian Jeff Toth, and then they talk superheroes, comics, and what it's like to have an entire town hate your jokes. Next Sarah chats with Matt Fraction, writer of Hawkeye, The Mighty Thor, The Immortal Iron Fist, and New York Times best selling comic series Sex Criminals. They talk about what it's like to write one of the funniest, most irreverently sexy comics ever. And finally, Don't Smile presents episode 3 of sci-fi radio play Sweepers! The adventure continues as Captain Hawthorne deals with those darn Brovian scavengers! NON-STOP FUN.
