With a little help from my friends




Well, it’s that time of the year once again – CJSR’s FunDrive is in full swing and we need your money.

Our goal is $125,000 and, as always, the DJs have come up with a few incentives to make it easier to part you from your money. Dan Electreau, host of Flying Saucer Rock’n’Roll gave this poster away to everyone who donated during his show on Monday.

It took me some time to figure out how I could top my ill-fated pledge to enter the (pathetically chauvinistic) Itty Bitty Titty Contest two years ago. But the answer, in retrospect, was obvious. Throughout the past few months I’ve had several guest musicians play live over the radio. Under CRTC regulations, the station is required to keep recordings of our broadcasts. Thus, I was able to obtain recordings of each performance.

The artists graciously provided me with permission to use these recordings for a compilation to give away to you – my supporters. So Dusty Trails supporters who tune in this Sunday, Oct. 9 between 2 to 4 p.m. will receive a copy of Dusty Trails. . . live from the vault. . .

The songs (in order of track listings) are:

Mary JaneBramwell & the Leftovers
The Tiki RoomDaisy Blue Groff
Cherokee SurfThe D. Rangers
Heaven or Hell – The Crooks
A Little SomethingMelissa Majeau
One By OneTrevor Tchir
Whiskey Business – Matt Masters w/The D. Rangers
P.T. Barnum – Daisy Blue Groff
Outlet StreamMatt Masters
The Glow – The Crooks
You Won’t Show – Melissa Majeau
Knowing You’re All Right – Trevor Tchir
Sophie – Matt Masters
Three Barriers – The D. Rangers

You can only get these recordings on the compilation, which you can only receive by supporting my show. So tune in to Dusty Trails this weekend on CJSR FM88.5, or online at www.cjsr.com, dial 492-CJSR and donate!
