Something puts on a Hallowe'en show at the Lula.

music video. In the hall, Macedonian Bulgarian Orthodox
Cathedral. 237 Sackville (Dundas/Parliament). $30 at the door.

Nov. 3-9: Fundraising drive at
The semi-annual campaign to raise much-needed music for a
much-needed community radio station. Anyone listening to the
kind of music listed here knows that stations like CIUT and CKLN
(and the CBC) are almost the only game in town on the radio
dial. That music wouldn't be there unless listeners support
them. There's not much advertising money keeping them going...
they need us. So tune in, check the website above, or call in
during your favourite show that week and give them a few bucks.
(A good world music day is Sunday, Nov. 9: Global Rhythms 3-6,
and Karibuni, 6-8).
Did you know that most shows are now available by podcast for
a week following? Check the program schedule on the website and
