STARFISH AND COFFEE RADIO #40 (03.25.18)

And so we say goodnight to the Starfish and Coffee Radio name. Episode #40 features a wild hour of music plus so many fun stories from Little Beat and DJ Starfish. This is a fitting way to close the Starfish and Coffee Radio experience.

In case you have not heard, the show is getting a new name starting on the Sunday April 1, 2018 broadcast. The show will still broadcast live-to-air from 6:30 – 7:30 pm on Sundays on 102.7FM CKMS at radiowaterloo.ca/listen. However, the team is going to sparkle things up with the new name. Catch the first episode of the show next week!

STARFISH AND COFFEE RADIO – EPISODE #39 (03.18.18)

Starfish and Coffee Radio is about to go out with a bang if episode #39 is any indication. That’s right, change is coming to Starfish and Coffee Radio. The show is changing names starting with the April 1, 2018 episode. That is no joke. Episode #40 will be the last show under the Starfish and Coffee Radio brand. The music format for the show will not be changing! You can count on that. As for the new name, that will be revealed on the April 1, 2018 broadcast!

Episode #39 was two scoops of musical fun crammed into 1 solid hour. Unfortunately, we had some technical issues and the show’s intro was not recorded and neither was the last song. Ah well, at least 50+ minutes of music and Starfish and Coffee fun made it to this week’s archived recording.

Starfish and Coffee Episode #15 (09.17.17)

 

 

And just like that, Starfish and Coffee is 15 episodes old. Wow! Where did the time go? Next week – the Sweet Sixteen.

The Sunday September 17, 2017 episode was a jolly good show. We played new music from The Barenaked Ladies and The Philosopher Kings, along with classics from “Weird Al” and New Kids On The Block. Yes, you read that right. NKOTB. We also launched our Splash N’ Boots VIP Ticket Give-Away Contest. Plus, we had not one, but two ‘What’s That Sound’ sound challenges put together by Little Beat.

You can find out more about the contest, and get your ballots to enter, at the top of our Facebook Page.
