PETER FUZZ – FREAKIE STYLIE
once again, you’re listening to the Revolution Music Radio Show here on CILU Radio 102.7FM in Thunder Bay with your host, Dr. Destrukto. The reason I started this show back in 2005 is because I was sick and tired of hearing the crap that the other stations play which generally consists of a bunch of watered down boring programming. How many times a day can they continue to play 30 year old doobie brothers songs, man? I’ve been passionate about canadian music and heavy music since I was a little kid, and I wanted to bring my music passion to the airwaves. I had a vision for a radio show that was fast, furious and intense, and consisted of songs and bands that the other station would not play, bands like Black Sabbath, Black Flag, Minor Threat, Slayer, Municipal Waste, Sepultura. These are bands that a lot of people love but get absolutely no love on the mainstream stations in town. That’s why CILU is an important part of our community. We are the only station that is willing to take programmign risks and step outside the box and play music that is challenging, progressive and often obscure. THAT’S why you need to keep supporting this station during our annual fund drive. Last year we were the only station in town that featured new music by Bottom Rockers, Rock Truck and Camden Blues, man, and we are the only station in town that deserves your support. So go to luradio.ca/fund -that’s f-u-n-d, or call 343-8881 and leave a message right now, man.

Fund Drive Promo
You don’t want this frequency to turn into dead air, do you? You don’t want to go back to the time when the only radio in thudner bay was a bunch of overplayed crappy b.s., do you? Of course, not, because you’re a cool person, and you listen to CILU Radio because you love the diversity of the station, and you love the fact that the station promotes and supports all styles and genres of music.

Across North America, a number of campus and community stations have been closed or been sold off to commercial interests because they weren’t able to sustain the capital requirements that are needed to keep a small community-based station like CILU on the air. So, please show us your support by going to luradio.ca/fund right now, man.
Coming up here, we have one of the ultimate Canadian bands, NOMEANSNO, a prog punk band that represents everything that CILU is about . a band that succeeded in gaining a huge underground following without ever having any mainstream radio airplay. And like the american college favourite band Ween, they have the songs that should be played on the radio. Catchy, well-written epic tunes. In my opinion, Nomeansno should be up there with Rush and the Tragically Hip. Why don‘t the other stations play and support awesome Canadian bands like Nomeansno?
YOu know, who cares why?The whole point here is we are the only radio station in the area that is about to play a live version of Nomeansno’s Teresa Give Me that Knife so turn up the volume and check out all the perks you can get when you donate at luradio.ca/fund.
