Wednesday Special Blend
Wednesday November 1st, 2023 with tic
# 982. LIVE in studio. Funding Drive #1

Hour 1, 7-8 a.m.
Greetings! I'm Tic, or you might know me as Michael Houston. I've had the privilege of contributing to our station in various volunteer capacities since 1983. For nearly two decades, I've had the honor of hosting and producing the Wednesday Special Blend from 7 to 9:30 a.m. Every Wednesday,

I'm here to kickstart your day with some fantastic content. My journey at the station began with an affinity for knobs and buttons, and I swiftly transitioned into a technical role, supporting multiple shows.

I'm on a perpetual quest for knowledge, not only about community issues and music but also about how to create outstanding content on a shoestring budget. We strive to minimize advertisements, avoid redundancy, and bring you unique, captivating content that keeps you tuned in.

Your support plays a pivotal role in making this possible. Thank you for being a part of our radio community!

Hi tic, glad your back in the studio? How was the trek in from the parking lot? I’ve donated by cheque—made a donation to CKCU as a whole—just easier for me to do it that way. CKCU FM—real radio made for real listeners by real volunteer hosts.

You've never sounded better! ...laid back...calm....butter voiced..... (take plastic off mike?) My final cheque will have at least $10 maybe $20 for show. Up to over $100 so far...)

Since you are live in the studio, I will be listening live as well. Thanks for all you do and how you brighten Wednesday mornings.

I love listening to Tom's "What's He Building..." back to back with his song "Murder in the Red Barn"... it feels like it completes the narrative!

9:20 AM, November 1st, 2023
The Bowie cover of I'm Afraid of Americans was great. Thanks for spinning it. I made a contribution to your show in return.
