The other (important) thing I need to mention is that we are now in the midst of CJSW's annual funding drive. CJSW (the station that airs Breaking The Tethers) receives half its funding from the University of Calgary Students Union (via a student levy); this covers the day-to-day expenses only (including the few paid employees, all four of them; pretty much everyone else is a volunteer, including yours truly). Capital expenditures, equipment upgrades, surprise financial needs, and more are funded solely by the money that is donated by CJSW listeners in the funding drive. So, this week's activities are crucial to the ongoing operations and programming of the station. The goal for the station this year is $200,000; my rough goal for the funding drive edition of Breaking The Tethers is $1000. Anything donated would be very welcome. The funding drive edition of Breaking The Tethers will take place on Tuesday, October 28, 6-9 am. There will be some incentives from CJSW for pledges (see http://www.cjsw.com/funding/funding_drive_incentives.html) plus there will be added CD incentives (some commercial jazz CDs, some special mix CDs made by me). Please listen in and call 403-220-5000.
