Aboriginal Voices Radio / CFIE

Aboriginal Voices Radio was a Canadian radio network that existed from 2002 until 2016.  Programming was aimed at indigenous peoples including First Nations, Inuit and Metis.

Toronto, Ontario's 106.5 FM CFIE (later changed to CKAV) was the flagship of the network with all other stations rebroadcasting their signal.  In 2014, AVR renamed itself to Voices Radio but left the airwaves soon after when the CRTC shut them down citing a long-term history of non-compliance with conditions of their license.

Huey Lewis and the News / WRIF / WPLJ

A few weeks ago we went to see Huey Lewis at the Rose Music Center just north of Dayton, Ohio.  Huey's voice and the band sounded great (especially the horn section) and, except for a couple new songs and an a cappella section in the middle of the set, consisted of nothing but hit after hit.  "Do You Believe in Love" "Workin' for a Livin'" and "Heart and Soul" (their best song...IMO) were particular highlights.  I could go the rest of my life without ever hearing "The Power of Love" again but it was still nice to see it live.
