November Newsletter

Newsletter Comments Off on November Newsletter

I hope you had a great summer. We certainly couldn’t complain about the weather.

It is hard to believe that it’s been six months since our last newsletter.

Denise and I were in Scotland a few weeks back, and were able to visit Barra, Eriskay, North and South Uist and Benbecula for the first time. The weather was great too!!

The show continues to gather new listeners all the time, and of course we have just begun our 43rd year on CHWO. The ratings are again very strong, as we continue to be in top spot for our time slot on a Sunday afternoon.

This year November 11th falls on a Sunday, so our Remembrance show has even more significance. Each year, we receive more comments about that show than any other. It is the one programme when I’d like to be a listener, as of course the show is live, so I don’t get the chance to sit back and enjoy!

Our listeners really are a world wide family now, as we continue to have more listen on the internet each week. If you have family or friends who might enjoy the show, and they have a computer, they can listen on Sundays, just like you, at www.am740.ca

Our January 31st cruise to Hawaii has been sold out for quite some time, and now have a wait list. It pays to book early !!!

On a personal note, there is a new addition to the Snowdon clan, as our son Paul and his wife Penny saw the arrival of their first child, Gabriel Joseph, on September 13. Paul was the last male of the Snowdons, so now the lineage continues!

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and once again, thanks so much for listening to the show.
