IMPORTANT SOCAN Reporting

Hi Programmers!
First, I'm sorry if you get two of these emails….We are working with the new email system and I'm still figuring it out. I think I did it right but haven't received it yet.
Anyways, Tomorrow starts SOCAN reporting! (sorry for the late notice)
A few things to keep in mind. We need to play 33% Canadian and only 40% hits.
If your show is Tomorrow (Wednesday), Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Please send me your set list. I need the following information:
Date | Song Title | Performer | Composer |
FYI – we will be loading up Airtime also, so if you are in the studio just be aware that something might start playing during your time slot. You will need to turn that dial down.
Thanks! Please send your set lists to me!

PUB CAROLS WITH THE ORANGE PEEL CAROLLERS SUNDAY DECEMBER 17TH, 2017, Cambridge ON

The Mill Race Folk Society

 presents

pub carols with the orange peel carollers Sunday December 17th, 2017 from 2-5pm at

the KIWI, 47 dickson st, cambridge (galt)

 

Following a time-honoured tradition from the north of England, a group of local friends under the banner of the Orange Peel Carollers will be gathering on Sunday, Dec. 17 at the KIWI to sing what are known as Village or Pub Carols. 

These carols are not the standard Christmas stock we hear piped into every mall; they are often more boisterous and secular in nature than the familiar fare. 

They have been preserved in the pub environment in several Yorkshire villages for at least the past 200 years. In some cases, these carols were frowned upon by the church of the time, and dropped from the order of service. They were sometimes retained by only one congregation, village, or family and were held with great pride and even jealousy. Pub carols are regaining popularity in England. 

The Pub carolling tradition in Canada was started in Ottawa around 1990 and has proven quite popular there. 

The song book the group will use for several of the carols is a publication from the Ottawa Folklore Centre entitled The Canadian Pub Caroller. It combines traditional English carols with some long-forgotten early Canadian hymns and carols. 

The Orange Peel Carollers like to think that they are doing their part to maintain the tradition and help it take root our local area. 

Most of the carols will be unfamiliar to modern ears, but with their folky sound and rousing choruses, some are very easy to learn. Other songs will be more familiar, but with a twist. 

If you would like to hear more, or better yet come out and sing along with the group, they invite you to join them at the KIWI, 47 Dickson St, Cambridge (Galt) from 2 P.m. to 5 P.M.  A

dmission if Free, but donations for the carollers are welcome.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MEDIA RELEASE

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the CHYM Tree of Hope Radiothon, bringing hope to local children, youth and families

 

Thursday, December 7, 2017

5 a.m. to 6 p.m.

CF Fairview Park

 

Kitchener – December 4, 2017 – For 25 years, the CHYM Tree of Hope Radiothon has given people the chance to hear about families, children and youth in our community who have faced big challenges – and how Family and Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region, and generous community members who have contributed to its Foundation, have helped them heal, learn and grow.

 

On December 7, local families will share moving stories on air as part of the Radiothon.

 

·       You’ll hear from Kalsoom, whose son developed better social skills and a more positive outlook thanks to a special theatre program he was enrolled in.

·       You’ll learn about how the Sexual Abuse Treatment Program helped one teen heal after she endured years of abuse.  

·       An adoptive father will describe how he and his wife made the decision to adopt an older child – and the joy she has brought into their lives.

 

The Family & Children’s Services Foundation is encouraging community members to consider making a donation so that these important programs will continue to be available all year long to those who need the extra support. It all comes together for one amazing day of caring that makes a big difference in the lives of families, children and youth.

 

Special guests will join us throughout the day, with opportunities for photos in our photo booth, including:

 

6 a.m. to 9 a.m. – CHYM Drive for Hope – Live with Brady, Adele & Tara

9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. – Meet princess characters from Fairytale Parties

12 p.m. to 1 p.m. – KW Titans answer the phones

1 p.m. to 3 p.m. – Special guests Jayna Hefford, five-time women’s hockey Olympic medalist, Waterloo Mayor Dave Jaworsky, Kitchener City Councillor Dave Schnider

3 to 6 p.m. – CHYM Drive for Hope – Live with Mark Paine

 

Listen live to CHYM 96.7 or come to CF Fairview Park mall to see it all happening live with CHYM 96.7’s Brady, Adele and Tara (6-9 a.m.) and Mark Paine (3-6 p.m.). There is no minimum donation and any amount helps. One day can make a difference to families in our community.

 

With your help and support, there’s hope. To donate to the CHYM Tree of Hope, please call 519-748-TREE (8733), drop by the mall to make a donation in person, or donate online at www.chymtreeofhope.com
