My FINAL program at CKCU-FM.

THANK YOU to all who have supported this program (and the other programs I have hosted).

THANK YOU too to those who have donated to the programs I have hosted over the years during our annual Funding Drive. It has been humbly appreciated. Ultimately, whether you did or did not donate to a program I hosted is not that important. However, if I was able to make the case for you to donate to the organization, that is what is truly important.

MUSIC IS A LIFE FORCE, and just because I will not be here to share it with you, perhaps I will see you at a music show or festival here in Ottawa, or Montreal, or Toronto, or Los Angeles, or New Orleans, or Memphis, or Jamaica, or Africa.

Sad to hear you are stepping away. Too many organisations are poorly managed with toxic culture of self and insecurities. But all must fail before being rebuilt and hence the hope. Best wishes Stephen!
