How To Lose a Podcast in Two (2) Days

It is VERY Easy to Lose a Podcast! Just follow these simple steps:

1. Copy the MP3's of your show from the Top Secret CJSR Database, to a small, 1gb USB Flash Drive.

2. Place USB Flash Drive in your Bag, along with TextBot, a deck of Casino Royale Playing Cards, and various CD's.

3. Plan to upload MP3's to podcast feed two days hence.

4. Two (2) Days later, go to splice MP3's together, and upload Podcast.

5. Discover your USB Flash Drive, is MISSING.

6. Get all excited when you think you see it, but instead, its the little lanyard thing that should have been attached to said USB Drive.

Ugh. Podcast Updated when i get new USB Flash Drive, and staple it to my FACE!  My Bad!


Tree Shoppin

Hi Folks. Now right now i should be splicing together This weeks show, BUT INSTEAD I am going to go for my annual 'Charlie Brown Xmas Tree Search'. See I still kinda favour the real ones: They smell nice, look purty, have slightly less chemicals seeping into the air, AND what would Christmas be without the fun of picking up Needles, by the glow of the Fireplace Channel.  ANYHOO I am gonna do that, hopefully not freeze my knackers off, and then i'll splice together The MP3 of this weeks show! Cool? Cool!



Dec 16 2008 - Snow 4 Life

Gremlins! GREMLINS!!!

Hiya Loyal Readers!

WELL Maybe i don't have the podcast thing QUITE figured out. That little rectangle below this post should have an episode of the show available for streaming....or....at least it did. Good thing the internets made our lives so much easier! HAHAHhahaha...ha ha...heh...uggggh.

In any case, a minor hiccup to say the least. The RSS Feed DOES work ( or at least last time i looked ), So if you subscribe to our Feed, you will get all the lovely little updates. It won't be long know until this is a fully functioning podcastable thing! Then you can take us wherever you go! Road Trip! WEEEEEEEEEEE!

If we make it to number 1, we're totally having a party. Not even kidding!



Hallo! Today we acknowledged people who listen in the shower. It happens. Weird.
Also, we gave away tickets to the awesome debut of the veggie donair at the Hydeaway tomorrow night! Super rad!

Show Recap - Nov 18 - Robots, Latvia, and PIRATES!

Today on the show was a calvade of usefull and mesmorizing facts! Its Latvian Independence day, Morrocan Independence day, and the Anniversary of William Tell shooting an Apple off his kids head! We also weighed the Pros and Cons of Robots that Make pancakes ( I took the Pro, Chad took the Con ), and theorized that if Doctor Doom were Latvian, they would have a great Independence Day Celebration.

Your Tuesday Morning Fortune Cookie Says : Your Skills will soon be recognized! Bout Time too!!


Nippon Paper Cranes Fight Song

Those Nippon Paper Cranes are pretty clever.  Not many teams even in North America can boast that they have their own fight song, But the Cranes do!! And its nothing short of spectacular. Like a sunset.



So Todays show was the Remeberance Day show: Hopefully all of you sported a Poppy and gave a Vet a smile and a nod! HOWEVER it was also Polish Indpendence day, so Happy ID4 to all our Polish Listeners! May Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum save you from alien attacks, by ripping off HG Wells.

For some reason we got onto talking about the Original SIM CITY, which i know want to play. So if anyone knows where or if we can play online, Let us know! ALSO let us know your favorite Sim City Building Strategies.

Drivin' Funds

Success!  We raised about $1575!  Which of course means I will be shaving off my moustache.  A sad day, but it was bound to happen eventually.    It'll grow back, I tell myself.  

Thanks to all of our great listeners who donated to the show and helped keep CJSR on the air for another year.

Tuesday Morning Fortune Cookie!: October 21 2008

So the Cookie spoke today and it said " You will be socially Sucessfull"

Translation: You gonna make alotta new friends. Which means more people who can help you move!

The Glue that keeps the show together: HERB ALPERT

You know what we would be without Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass? NOTHING. We would be in consequential dust mites. Herb Alpert is the Makin Whoopee band, whos smooooooth groovy sounds play in the background while we yack on the air.

If you do not have this album in your music collection, YOU SIR are a horrible human being.


What Happens when the BBC is on??

BEHOLD: Text Bot!!!

Who invented Text messaging?? WE DID!! This is Text Bot, and he wants your text messages so he can beep and jump and dance. Text him at 780 270 4243!!!



Behold CHAD as he puts together another award winning Set.

And by award winning, i mean his dad listens to the show, and heartily enjoys it.

WE Are On The Air!!!!

Its 705 am, and i am typing this as we are ON THE AIR! Yes we are pulling back the curtain and launching the Website for all the World! I am going to see if i can figure out how to take photos and put them on the site WHILE THE SHOW IS GOING ON! Thats right, thats just the type of things we do for you here.

Feel free to comment, call us at the station at 780 492 2577 ext 1 or Text our Makin Whoopee Textbot at 780 270 4243!

Now where is that camera.....




FunDrive is JUST AROUND THE CORNER: Thats right, CJSR's annual fundraiser, and the best and most adorable way to show us your love!  We're thinkin on things to do for the FunDrive show, but this is much is confirmed: I'm bring in Waffles! You should come down, be a part of the show On October 28th from 7 to 9am, have a waffle and be part of our live studio audience!  Quit your job if you have too!



Who would have thought making a website was actually work!!

The new webpage is slowly coming together! We're planning a podcast feed, for those of you who REFUSE to wake up when we do and listen to our show live. We will punish you by making you download the show later. Ran into a bit of a bump as the CJSR computer seems to be trimming off the last 2 minutes of the show, WHICH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! Thats the 'Tuesday Morning Fortune Cookie' time! So i'll have to splice that stuff in! Stay Tuned!!!



The Domain Finally works! hahahahah...now then...where were we...



Who knew hooking up a domain name would be so difficult! I will not suffer this ridiculouslness no longer!

Wait who am i kidding...yes i will...i am OCD for this nonsense....
