Folk U Radio celebrates 50 live shows on CKTZ 89.5 FM this Friday at 1 p.m. Please join host Manda Aufochs Gillespie and Cortes's local musicians the Awakeneers (developers of the Folk U Radio theme song Think!) for live music and a peak "back stage" into the music-making lives and inspiration of these neighbours.
