Friday Drive
Friday October 28th, 2022 with Trevor Walker

Happy Friday Drivers! This show is part one of three funding drive episodes! The now annual "FridayDriveFundingDriveFreestyle" or [FDFDF]. Hoping to get all my regular and irregular listeners and streamers, all you general consumers of "Friday Drive" and CKCU regulars to please show the same generosity that you've shown in past years in donating to this year's campaign! I'd love to smash last years total of $2700, if I'm not mistaken. The general breakdown is as follows. Costs the station roughly $5600 a year to air the Friday Drive, which is my ultimate goal total. Broken down, all it will take is 112 people with a $50 donation to reach my goal and help contribute to the station’s overall goal of $190,000 which is half of the station’s operating budget! *Works out to less than $1 / week! We are accepting donations from anyone and everyone who would like to support! Please let’s do this if you believe in not for profit, independent, volunteer powered, community based broadcasting & streaming. Click & Donate tell a friend and spread the love! PLEASE DO THIS NOW! There is no CKCU without you! “If you found it on CKCU, please help fund CKCU!” You can donate directly to the Friday Drive "Canada Helps Campaign" here: (don't be shy to share this link) Phone number for donor/supporter messages & testimonials: 613 520 3920 (to be aired throughout the drive with your contribution & permission) Extra curriculars: EVENTS: Friday: Friday I’m in Love!

About Whacks Vinyl & Drums: Whacks Vinyl & Drums has been an on-going project for musicians Akeem Oh & Mat Landry. Using vinyl, drums and impressive visuals as their vehicles, they converse between modern & retro hits. Oh’s vinyl and musical expertise has been widespread across his industry over the years as a DJ, a singer/songwriter and as a seller at Ottawa's The Record Centre. He's also had a hand in the making of several vinyl records for many artists and labels. Landry’s drumming has been heard on recordings and on stages internationally across Europe & North America. In Summer 2022, he toured with ELIO, opening several dates for modern pop icon Charli XCX. Individually, they have worked alongside Grammy & Juno winners, pulling influence from various genres including 60s soul, 90s r&b, as well as pop hits and pop gems of the current era.
