live on air, it's radio free daveberta... actually... it's cjsr's fundrive 2008!

I'm excited to announce that on Friday October 31 from 12pm-1pm, I will be making my radio debut by joining Miss Samantha Power in co-hosting that day's Newsroom on CJSR FM 88. Over the course of the hour, Samantha and I are planning to discuss the role of independent media, citizen journalism, and corporate ownership over the mainstream media in Canada.

It's going to be fun, so you can listen to the show by tuning your radio to 88.5FM or live over the internet.

The show is part of CJSRs week-long annual FunDrive -- which takes place all this week. Running a radio station is expensive, so along with collecting a dedicated student fee through the University of Alberta Students' Union, CJSR depends on listener support to stay on air, so I encourage you to make a donation. You can donate, donate, donate online (securely) or phone (780) 492-2577 ext 1.

Can't wait to hear you. Do you get to give away free swag with everyone else?

Are you going to discuss the ownership and quality of weeklys (spelling? plural of weekly) as well as the big boys?

Samantha Powers is my favourite fair and balanced journalist in town.
