Well, it's almost time to tie a bow on and stick a fork in the year that was 2016. It is also that time when we, the musically-obsessed, start to reflect on what turned our collective crank, or floated our collective boat (musically speaking, of course) over the last 12 months.
OK, OK, it's been a minute (or several months) since our last "Get To Know A CFCR Volunteer." With a busy summer, and FM-Phasis in the fall, we just couldn't find the time. BUT, we're making it up to you with a serious three-point shot, featuring the awesome hosts of our Wednesday night hip hop show, Third Verse! Read on!!

Once again, we've got a bit of a bittersweet edition of "Get To Know A CFCR Volunteer" for you.

In this edition of "Get To Know A CFCR Volunteer," we put host of The A Word Bart Gazzola in the hot seat. Bart has been a CFCR host & volunteer for almost a decade, and he has just announced he's leaving the province, so we thought we'd better snag him while we still could!
