'Funding Drive' will keep Soca on the radio in 2012

The show itself is pretty young, (today will be only the 16th show), but for lovers of Soca music in Calgary we hope that the "Carnival Mix" is becoming your weekly link to some of the best music that comes out of the Caribbean.

Last week's 'Friday Fete' generated over $1000 which went to support 2 of Calgary's local bands and includes a $250 donation to CJSW radio from listeners like you.

Today's show (October 26th) we hope to continue that support from listeners, as there will be giveaways throughout the hour.  Exclusive CD mixes, CJSW gear, and one lucky winner will get a gift basket including 2 tickets to your choice of ANY ONE Soca event that comes to Calgary in the next year!

For more info on the station's funding drive, check out the article in Avenue Magazine

The show is on live every Wednesday from 6-7pm on 90.9fm and streaming at

Skinny Fabulous, Problem Child and Tallpree perform at Calgary's 'Got Soca'

St.Vincent's Skinny Fabulous, Problem Child and Grenada's Tallpree touched down in Calgary this weekend. The camera was pretty close to the speaker hence the bad audio. (4 videos in the playlist)

The "Friday Fete" happens on October 21st 2011 and features live bands Infiniti and Explosion for everyone's enjoyment, plus Drew and Wolston will be supplying the tunes in between the bands.
