CJSR Awards!

Hello listeners,
It's the time of year again where CJSR has a little award ceremony to honour all the volunteers that work so hard to keep the station running. Normally we all have a little soiree together and beforehand we all vote on who does the best show, who's the best host, etc. But this year we're opening up that voting to you the listener as well. I don't mean to pander, but you should vote for Big A, Little a, because that's your favourite music show to listen to, right?

You can vote by going HERE. Don't let me down or I swear I will kill you and myself (although I likely won't honour that promise)

Your pal,
Dave Finkelman
