Highland Radio 2013 taking over CHSR

Lovely Scottish sunshine today ;) but it's not going to stop the NB Highland Games Festival from starting this evening with a Kilted Run/Walk at 6 pm, a concert in the Ceilidh Tent starting at 7 pm, followed by a kick-Off Party also in the Ceilidh Tent.

Saturday morning, 27 July, through the closing ceremonies late Sunday afternoon, HIGHLAND RADIO takes over CHSR 97.9 FM from our tent at the Highland Games site on the 11 acre grounds of Old Government House, 51 Woodstock Road, in Fredericton, NB. We'll have Scottish and Celtic-inspired music; Scottish poetry and storytellers; interviews with music and dance performers, workshop leaders, and interesting people at the games; competition results, and much more ...

Listen to us on air, on the web at CHSR 97.9 FM.

Come to the Highland Games and visit us in person. CHSR is Fredericton's campus–community radio station, your volunteer-run and operated radio station. We've been in Fredericton since 1961, and we are Fredericton's oldest FM station. Find out how you can join CHSR 97.9 FM and get your face on radio making airwaves.

Joe Blades books available at UNB Fredericton bookstore

Because I was an instructor of a session in Maritime Writers' Workshop 2013 this month, the University Bookstore at UNB Fredericton currently has copies of two of my books: Casemate Poems (Collected) (Chaudiere Books), and Prison Songs and Storefront Poetry (Ekstasis Editions). Would be really nice to see them sell copies. The books will be there at least a month. The store is located at 29 Dineen Drive, Fredericton, Phone 506-451-6912, Fax 506-458-7001.
