Fridays at 11am you can hear directly from candidates running in the June 7th 2018 provincial election.
30 minutes of unfiltered, uncensored content from the people looking to represent you at Queen’s Park.
What could possibly go wrong? Tune in and find out.
Did you know?
In the 2014 provincial election, only 19.5% of eligible votes were cast for the governing Liberal party.
That means that over 80% of eligible voters did NOT vote for the winner of the last provincial election!
This is not unique to the last election. Results have been similar for the past several elections.
How is this possible?
We can blame the electoral system all we want and there is plenty to fix there, but the fact is that over 4.6 MILLION eligible voters did not vote in 2014. That is almost 1 out of every 2 eligible voters failing to cast a valid vote.
So what can you do? VOTE! This is the #1 thing you can do. It’s free and it is your responsibility as a citizen. Go do it.
Start here: eregistration.elections.on.ca
What else can you do? Tell your friends and family you are a voter, and encourage them to be one too! Voting is contagious, spread it around.
Still here? Good! Inform yourself. Find out about the candidates in your riding. You are electing someone to represent YOU in the government. Find out what your options are, learn about the candidates, ask them questions.
Remember, if you do not vote, then you are handing your vote to whoever wins.
Vote For Me 6-7-18 airs Fridays 11-1130am starting April 27th 2018, and every Friday until the Ontario election on June 7th 2018.
A post-election recap final will air on June 8th 2018.

The text below was spoken by Kurt Waldheim, the Secretary General of the United Nations.
I send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out of our solar system into the universe seeking only peace and friendship, to teach if we are called upon, to be taught if we are fortunate. We know full well that our planet and all its inhabitants are but a small part of the immense universe that surrounds us and it is with humility and hope that we take this step.
Here is that recording as well as recordings by other speakers. Feel free to send me your recording of the same text.

More info on the Golden Record. This is the show opening clip.
40 years ago in 1977, CKMS radio and the Voyager spacecrafts were launched. in a few years, the spacecrafts will power down, as their nuclear power source dwindles. We trust CKMS will be broadcasting for many more years than that.
The Voyager Golden Records are phonograph records that were included aboard both Voyager spacecraft. The records are thought to be able to remain intact for a billion years.
The records contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. Those records are considered as a sort of, time capsule.
Carl Sagan noted that “The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. The launching of this ‘bottle’ into the cosmic ‘ocean’ says something very hopeful about life on this planet.
Sagan and his associates assembled 115 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind, thunder and animals (including the songs of birds and whales). To this they added 30 musical selections from different cultures and eras, spoken greetings in 55 ancient and modern languages, and other human sounds, like footsteps and laughter.
Here is an excerpt of President Carter’s official statement placed on the Voyager spacecraft for its trip outside the Solar System, June 16, 1977:
We cast this message into the cosmos … Of the 200 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, some – perhaps many – may have inhabited planets and space faring civilizations. If one such civilization intercepts Voyager and can understand these recorded contents, here is our message: This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts, and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope some day, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilizations. This record represents our hope and our determination and our goodwill in a vast and awesome universe.

This is Bald Boy. I host a classic rock album cuts show — So Old It’s New — on 102.7 Sound FM Radio, airing 8-10 pm Mondays. The show’s premise: Old bands, old tracks, old bands, their new tracks if they’re still releasing music. Mostly 1960s and 70s stuff, the era in which I grew up. But I’ll go with 80s, 90s, 2000s as well – Guns ‘N Roses, The Cult, Wolfmother, REM, you name it. Prog and (70s) punk, too. Or whatever else strikes my fancy.
And I’ll play the occasional single you likely have not heard on commercial rock radio in many a moon, which is what prompted this show – my frustration with commercial rock radio not going beyond the same repetitive fare from the Stones, Zep, Purple and the like.
So with me, you’ll get the Stones’ Fingerprint File, not Start Me Up. You’ll get Zep’s Achilles Last Stand, not Stairway To Heaven. I publish all my set lists here and also on Facebook (search for Bald Boy) and Twitter (Karlo Berkovich), including song clips.
Rebel Time Radio is a punk rock show with a (very!) political flavor. We play a wide variety of punk, hardcore, ska and oi while having a laugh at politicians and rich people. We’re anti-fascist, against sexism, want to wipe out homophobia and transphobia, and generally can’t stand when powerful people take advantage of others. In sum, these are rebel tunes for rebel times!
Tune in every Wednesday at 9 pm to fill your earholes with joy with our live shows, or catch our somewhat more polished podcasts, which go up pretty regularly on the Radio Waterloo website. You can also subscribe to our show on iTunes or find us on other podcatchers. Why not eh!?
Check out the Official Website of Rebel Time Records and maybe go give us a like on Facebook to stay up to date with all things to do with our high quality international music empire. You can listen to (and even purchase) amazing Rebel Time releases at our Bandcamp page. Request tunes, tell us about shows and your band, or send spam messages to email@example.com. Enjoy the show!
