Tonight's program featured very little music - mostly talk - and produced an extremely successful fundraishing show for CIUT. 23 callers donated money to the radio station, raising over $1,100 which is friggin' amazing! Great work Sugar Campers. A rather large thank you to all who donated, and especially to my three guests who provided so much drive to make this edition of the Sugar Camp so successful.
