Apologies from the Station Manager

Over the past week, there has been CJLO spam sent over 3rd party news sites from the manager@cjlo.com email address.

I would like to personally apologize and let the community know that we are doing all that we can to figure out who is responsible. Any email with a news attachment or a blurb about CJLO coming from my name and the manager email is spam. I do not endorse this kind of 'publicity' for the station.

I apologize again and thank you for your understanding.


On Wednesday the 3rd of August, Beautiful Music for Ugly Children has two very very very ugly surprises for you. First, local darkling Melankolya will be in for a chat and to dish out his beautiful music to sooth your ugly souls.

Second, Fantasia has graciously provided Beautiful Music for Ugly Children with tickets to attend the crooner of the macabre, Voltaire, who will be taking over the DB Clarke Theatre at Concordia University on Friday August 5th at 8pm.
