  • Stop Sending MP3′s Please!

    Posted by Rob on October 16th, 2006

    A note to all you eager musicians: Please do not send us MP3’s of your work through email without asking for permission first. We will not listen to, or schedule unsolicited MP3’s for airplay. Our email has become backed up with piles of unsolicited music and spam. Please help simplify our work, thank you.

    Thanks to Michael ‘Higgy’ Higgins for letting us marvel at his threads. We’d love to learn more about these up-to-now mythical CKUW jackets.

    Check out our Flickr stream for more cool pics of the jacket:
