This from Carrie Swiggum of CJMP News:
“I’m casting the net far and wide, looking for interested voices to be part of the next GroundWire episode.
CJMP has been invited to collaborate, and the episode deadline is coming up quick.
All we need to do is read the script which will be sent to us on Friday January 27 in the afternoon. If you’re available on Friday after 1 (or Saturday) to meet at the studio, please let me know. Would be nice to get around 4 or 5 voices on this. Here is an example of a script http://www.groundwirenews.ca/wp7VZ
The broadcast will air Monday, January 30.
Come be part of this collaborative project and hear CJMP represented from coast to coast!

CJMP is proud to have been part of this year’s Blackberry Street Party, Marine Avenue’s biggest festival. With music, food, dancing and more, the festival drew in locals and tourists to celebrate together and showcase Powell River’s culture, arts, businesses and non-profits. CJMP set up their live radio station at the south end of the festival, channeling the airwaves coming live from the studio and playing them out onto the street. Many thanks to Bad Karen (Every Day is Like Sunday), DJ Kamandi (Cowbell Radio), and DJ TripleDub (Pow!Town Get Down) for their awesome shows which we got to blast onto the street, as well as a big thank-you to everyone who helped set up, staff the booth and take down. Good times were had by all!
