Volume, Contrast, Brilliance
Saturday November 7th, 2015 with Steve Kirkland

FUNDING DRIVE PROGRAM 3. My guest for this evening is Wally Salem, friend, longtime listener/supporter of CKCU-FM. Wally's the founder of local "label",the beautiful music (tbm), which, similar to this radio program, is a non-profit labour of love. tbm compiles, releases and promotes music by artists, local to international. On this show we discuss the importance of CKCU as a launching pad for artists unlikely to reach mass audiences or acclaim. We also play a few tunes that Wally or I originally heard on this station some time or other in the past.
