the organ grinder fundrive edition fittingly falls on halloween day from 1-2 pm on cjsr fm 88.5! with that comes an array of tricks and treats including a live organ performance from ben disaster plus guest appearances by the likes of caitlin richards (organa, queen of the keys) and annalisa valentina hartfeil-richards (as the organ grinder's monkey!).

as well, beyond the extraordinary cjsr swag adorned with artwork by raymond biesinger illustration inc., it is a pleasure to offer several prizes to a handful of lucky draw-winning donors. these include an original painting by warren krick, a pair of tickets to winspear centre and sherbrooke liquor's halloween presentation of lon chaney in the phantom of the opera (featuring accompaniment by organist dennis james) and a cinema six pack courtesy of metro cinema!

as a reminder of the fact that every donation is exceedingly important in helping the station reach its fundraising goal of $105,000, organ grinder pins (made possible by krick and print machine) will be given to every single donor on my show, whether they donate $1 or $10,000.

if you'd like to donate to my show, you can contact me on facebook or at organgrinder@cjsr.com prior to showtime. You may also fill out the donation form on cjsr.com or call in during my show at 780-492-2577 ext. 0.

happy grinding!
