This week we’re pleased to welcome Halifax Mayor Mike Savage as our special guest. This marks the first time we’ve recorded Examineradio in front of a live audience, and our thanks to the Company House for hosting the event and Erin Costelo for providing a great musical interlude.

The live taping was part of CKDU’s Spring Fring, the station’s quarterly sustainer drive. CKDU is Halifax’s only campus & community radio station. This means that the sound of the station is shaped by the volunteer programmers who are on-air every day, and their funding comes from our listeners as opposed to advertising revenue – much like the Halifax Examiner, which is also ad-free and relies on its subscribers.

The station offers the most diverse radio content in the province, both music and current affairs. And if you’re not currently a monthly CKDU sustainer, just head over to their website and you can sign up. They’ve got different sustainer levels and some snazzy incentives to throw your way. Simply put, if you appreciate independent media – like the Halifax Examiner, you should try to support it financially.

  1. GREAT JOB!! Erin was stupendous. Mayor Mike was great – we are lucky to have him. Russell and CKDU – what a service! And hats off to our own Rosie O’D! And as a sidelight, unrelated to this episode, the Examiner’s two Linda Panozzo pieces on biomass are real environmental game-changers. Thanks for running them and turning the spot on what’s happening to our forests.
