FunDrive 2011 Recap


Colin and I would like to thanks all of our fantastic listeners who called in and donated to Makin' Whoopee during FunDrive this year. All together, we managed to break the $4000 mark, which is completely insane. I guess the geeks really have taken over, huh?

But seriously, I can't thank you enough. Colin and I both have become more and more involved with the station as the years have gone by, and that means we really see where your donations are going. We may not be getting those gold-plated microphones this year, but we are definitely going to be able to continue our fine programming. That, of course, means you will have to put up with a lot more talk about the Avengers movie, zombies, Batman, and probably another full episode dedicated to Archie, if I'm feeling especially crazed that morning.

Over the next year, CJSR is going to continue to get better. Makin' Whoopee, too (I think Colin and I will be giving the website another re-design, for starters.) On the main CJSR site, we will probably see the return of our long-dead magazine Airtight, now in full-on web mode and socially networked out the wazoo. I can imagine Colin and I will both contribute some posts here and there. Expect to see CJSR at more shows, more Farmer's Markets, more Pop Culture Fairs.

Thanks again for the support. Keep it up by wearing your CJSR swag with pride, using your Star Card all over town, telling your friends about your favourite programs, and like the shambling zombie, biting them and converting them to our cause. Maybe even come on down and lend your skills as a volunteer.

Next year will be bigger and better, and I can't wait to see you at FunDrive 2012.

- Chad

Oh, and we'll totally get those podcasts going again. Promise?

May 3, 2011 - You Can't Spell Harper without HAHAHAHAHA

On Todays Show, Chad takes a sick day, So Colin recaps a historic weekend in the History of weekends. He talks Royal Wedding, Bin Laden, and of course another 4 years of Stephen Harper. Unfortunately he didn't bring the paperwork home with him that had the playlist, so instead, here is a waffle receipe:

For this waffle recipe you will need: 4 ounces of all purpose flour, 4 ounces of whole-wheat flour, one tablespoon of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, some salt, three eggs, one and a half cup of milk, and some vegetable oil. And a waffle iron.
How to make a waffle in five easy steps: 1. Put all the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt) into one bowl. 2. Put all the wet ingredients (eggs, milk, and oil) into another bowl and beat, mix, shake, stir until the eggs and milk become one. 3. Pour the mix you've just made into the bowl with dry stuff and mix again, until there are no lumps left. 4. Now put half cup of batter you made in the waffle iron. It would be a good idea to have the waffle iron hot and ready if you are really hungry like us. Or you can wait for it to warm up since the batter can rest for a while anyways and even tastes better if it does (little secrets). 5. There is no number five with this waffle recipe, you are done! We told you it was a simple, quick and hassle free waffle recipe!
PS: We wanted to make this waffle recipe like a walk in the park so note one more thing - if you are short on waffle irons don't sweat it. Just pour the waffle mix on to a hot buttered up pan and make them like pancakes. They will lack the waffle shape but not the taste.
Oh, this waffle recipe will give you around eight or nine, 9 inch sized waffles. Enjoy.


April 26, 2011 - The (Awful Avengers)
