The New Classical FM Pet of the Week: Happy

Happy is our older chap, who is looking for a forever home where he can rest his paws and be a companion to someone who understands his quirky ways and give him the guidance he needs.

If Happy is the one for you, please speak to an adoption agent today! To learn more about the adoption process visit The Humane...

Cosmic Corner: Virgo in Action

Cosmic Corner: Virgo in Action

  VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) Virgo is perhaps the most misunderstood sign of the Zodiac.  Dismissed as neurotic and perfectionist, Virgo gets a bad rap.  But this is only because of the nature of our culture, in which the essential principles of Virgo are all but thrown in the dumpster. The symbol for Virgo is The Virgin. This is not referring to sex per se, or naïvité or inexperience, but to purity in the sense of belonging to no one. Virgo seeks wholeness. Essential to wholeness is integrity, and essential to integrity is discernment. The season of Virgo is the time of the harvest, when the wheat is separated from the chaff. In the body, Virgo rules the intestines, where we break things down and separate the nutrients from the waste. Virgo discerns what is useful from what is useless, what is good for us from what is bad. Virgo is the ultimate fine filter, and there is nothing that gets past without scrutiny. God, or the devil, is in the details — to Virgo, it all amounts to the same thing: Every little thing matters. When considering what to keep and what to throw away — when your integrity is at stake — every detail matters. This kind of discernment requires time and quiet, both of which are hard to come by in our over-stimulated, go-go-go world. Not to mention that individual wholeness is constantly undermined by powerful and relentless messages from corporate consumer culture telling us who we should be and what, therefore, we should want.  Given all this noise and pressure, is it any...
Get to Know Your Hosts! Q&A with Bill Anderson

Get to Know Your Hosts! Q&A with Bill Anderson

Interview with Bill Anderson, host of Bill’s Classical Jukebox and Breakfast Classics. 1. How did you get started in broadcasting? I had no idea about my career path until my secondary school English teacher suggested the Radio/TV Arts course at Ryerson. That opened doors for a summer job at CHUM Radio in Toronto and later my first full-time on-air opportunity in Barrie Ontario. 2. What’s the best movie you’ve seen? West Side Story – mostly because of the great music. 3. If you could only go to ONE more concert in your life, who would you see? Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki is an amazing talent who started doing “Live” performances on our radio station when he was 12 years old. He’s 19 now and a major international star. 4. What would your wife say is your most annoying habit? I talk too much. When I’m telling a story I like to include every last detail so it takes a while to get to the point. Hey, that’s what I do for a living. 5. Everybody has one thing they cook REALLY well. What’s your specialty? I’m capable of grilling a perfect medium-rare 8 ounce filet mignon on my backyard barbecue. My wife Sharon makes the “Sauce Bearnaise”. 6. Coolest person in entertainment history – GO! Frank Sinatra –legendary singer with perfect pitch and diction. Also an excellent actor. And he had wonderful charisma and “style”. I never saw Mozart but he must have been pretty cool too. 7. Favorite gift you ever received? When Zoomer Media threw a party to celebrate my 50th anniversary in radio, Moses Znaimer gave...
