Hexon Bogon
Friday November 18th, 2022 with Adriana Ciccone
Post Funding Drive show.

In this episode, you'll hear a dedication to Mimi Parker of LOW and music by LOW, Paul Anthony, Snowdrops, Blanco Teta, Lumenette, Eon Collide, Baker Ja Lehtisalo, Black Ox Orkestar, Carved Into the Sun, and Cloud Circuit. I want to thank everyone who donated to the funding drive via Hexon Bogon. We surpassed the show's funding goal of $1000!!! I don't know the exact total as some of the donation amounts were anonymous, but I do know that we surpassed the $1000 goal. That's huge and I can't thank you enough. There really is no CKCU without YOU! Some of you wished to remain anonymous but I do want to list those who shared their names and words of encouragement. Thank-you to all the ANON donations and Regis L, Alan K, A&P, Kenneth, Frank S, Alan S, Gab T, Paul A, Candace N, Jean P/Kosmavermo, Jack C, Mónica C, Peter B, Shane H, Chris T, and Harry F!! Your names will be put in a hat for a chance to win the prize pack shown in the playlist photo. It contains two gift cards, one for The Odds & Sods shop (value $50), another for Bandcamp (value $50). It also includes download codes to various releases, a Hexon Bogon/OEM pencil case, notebooks (2), stickers, a pin, and OEM t-shirt. I've also added a little pack of Baci chocolates. I will announce the winner of the prize pack on Dec 2nd! You still have time to donate to the FD as the station has not met its $190,000 goal yet.

Thanks! I ironed on the print design myself on the pencil case. They aren't perfect but handy. The chocolates are nice. I like the sayings that comes with each one.
