Alsandair O’Neill, a.k.a. Sandman and Peter Benner, a.k.a. Peanut Butter, represented CHCR at a drum clinic hosted by the drummer for Rob Zombie, Tommy Clufetos, at Bob’s Music in Pembroke, Thursday Oct 23. Only fitting that the ex-Headbangers Show DJ went to see this event. Still a Headbanger at heart, he jumped at the chance to see this guy perform for the small time crowd in Pembroke. He had a chat with Tommy and will be sharing his impressions on the next Something Else show next Wednesday at 8 o’clock, on 102.9, 104.5 FM or www.chcr.org.

PSA: Cheryl Stanley

Last week, a very dear friend of mine and energetic member of our community, lost her home to a fire. Her fourteen-year-old son was badly burned, and her hands had been burned as well. They have been in Cheo in Ottawa, while the boy recovers. She also has four daughters that escaped unharmed and are staying at a friend’s house.

Cheryl Stanley is a member of CHCR, a member of the Unity Dollar Association and has helped to organize and take part in many events and organizations in this area in the few years she has lived here. One of the most notable in my experience was her involvement in the Barry’s Bay and Combermere Farmer’s Markets. Through those connections, she gave me my first job when I moved to this area. She certainly has great heart.

That is why it appalled me that our local newspaper, the Barry’s Bay This Week, barely reported the story. She got a picture and a brief paragraph. I realize that there were many more stories that needed to go to press, but I have seen other fires in the area become front page news with full articles. Surely we can do better for someone who has given so much to the community surrounding us.

Madonna House, the Red Cross, the Unity Dollar Association and CHCR are all helping to get her a place to live for the winter and raising money for her benefit. To help out or donate, please contact these organizations. I give thanks to everyone who helps out.

9pm: Cousin Ken’s Show hosted by Cousin Ken

What can I say that Cousin Ken can’t say on his own?

Friday Nights, 9 pm to Midnight.
Listen to my show. I’m tellin’ ya. Most Fridays I’m live, unless there’s a good band playing at a local venue, and then I’ll let our logger computer select one of my previous shows for replay. It’ll be good. I’ll play Canadian country classics, and other types of folk, roots and/or popular local tunes. You might even catch Audio Art segments, sound effects, and vintage CHCr snippets on my “Retro Replay”! Our CHCR program director has vowed never to allow “Cousin Ken’s Show” to be re-played in the daytime, due to the fact of my “non-compliance”; vis-a-vis my refusing to sign a “non-profanity content” waiver for program director. If you want to hear my show while the sun is shining and if your parents want to waltz in the kitchen, please email the program director at
And listen to my show. Watch for the repeats. Eat my bacon at our Pancake Breakfast, first Sunday of every month at the Killaloe Friendship Centre, on Lake Street, here.
Cousin Ken has a beard and ponytail, and is currently rolling a tire. Cousin Ken would like to thank “Ben’s Chip Truck” for the poutine, Al Brisco for the pedal steel guitar, and “Mike’s Tire” for the rubber.
Forget email! Send me a letter: CHCR Box 195, Killaloe, ON, Canada, K0J 2A0.

There you have it. If that intrigues you, tune in at 102.9, 104.5 FM or online at www.chcr.org.

Ana Miura, Amanda Rheaume, Amy Campbell, and Sarah Loucks all came out to the Red Canoe Cafe, Wilno Station Inn for an evening of good music and good food to raise money for their campaign against breast cancer. CHCR came out and supported them as they shared their songs and their stories from the road. Wilno was the first stop on the Ontario leg of their cross-Canada tour. These talented women have picked up a great cause and are donating every cent from the tour to breast cancer research.
Tonight, they will be in Peterborough, at The Splice. Catch their show at 7 pm. On Saturday, they will be in Pembroke in the Cafe Ole at 9 pm. For more information or to make donations, visit the Babes For Breasts website.
