Shindig! Guests – Monday, November 14/11
Today, campus and community radio stations across Canada will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the National Campus and Community Radio Association (NCRA) with Reclaim Your Radio. Simultaneously broadcast from sea to sea to sea, Reclaim Your Radio is an NCRA radio campaign designed to illustrate the importance of community-driven, non-profit radio in Canada. CJSW News Director Marc Affeld will present Reclaim Your Radio during the first hour of today’s Shindig!. Check it out on Twitter too – #reclaimyourradio.
In the second hour of Shindig!, philanthropists Lori Stewart and Reg Tiangha from the Awesome Calgary foundation will join Aubrey in the CJSW studios to talk about how they’re making Calgary a better place – one thousand dollars at a time. Awesome Calgary is a small group of Calgarians who donate $100 of their own money every month to bestow $1,000 to someone with an outstanding idea for our community. Tune in to meet Lori and Reg, hear how the process works, and how you can present your awesome idea for Calgary.
In the video below, Reg profiles Calgary’s Claudia Bustos and Vlad Amiot who were awarded $1,000 for their awesome idea last summer. Take a look at how they inspired others to magically reclaim dark, overlooked corners in Calgary on a balmy summer night.
