You know that amazing March Gladness prize pack worth, like, $500 that we’re giving away? We can thank Jason Toner from T.W.E.P.I. for that. Actually… let’s thank him right now and hear about some of the amazing things you can do in Windsor/Essex County this spring!
We heard the story about a massage therapist from Windsor having an opportunity to show her skill before an international audience so we just had to reach out to Carrie Deslippe (a Registered Massage Therapist and the founder of Above and Beyond Message Therapy Clinic), to hear about her invitation to compete in the International Massage Association’s Sixth World Championship in Massage later this year in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Carrie has a couple of fundraisers coming up March 25, May 6th, and June 10th at the Barbershop. Good luck representing Windsor!!!
We march along (right?) with March Gladness, the happiest month in radio.
Today we heard about a new tip to pull off your BANDAIDS without pain. We gave a quick call to the source about that.

We heard somewhere that March is ‘National Peanut Month’ so we decided to reach out to award-winning dietitian Sue Mah.

Since Mar 10 is obviously MARIO day! (*Tori just learned this), we decided to reach out to the fine folks at Nintendo to find out about their favourite characters.
March is officially Kidney Health Month, and with today being World Kidney Day we thought it would be a perfect time to highlight the need for kidney donors in Canada.
Today we talked to Cindy Keo about what her family is going through right now with her mom having kidney health issues. They’re keeping their heads up and working through each day as a family, just like tens of thousands of others are doing right now. Support kidney.ca in any way you can, and check out Cindy’s story below.

That’s exactly what our friend LM Afonso did when she published her beautifully written and heartbreakingly good novel On Broken Wings, we talked to her about it today. Pick up your copy, royalties from the book are going to The Bridge to help other at risk kids.

Today we wanted to highlight one of the coolest (*yes, I am 100% serious when I say COOLEST!) events around, and that is the Windsor Chess Challenge which is back after a couple of years off due to COVID.
Why is chess so cool? Let me tell you. First, as you’ll hear right here, chess gives EVERY kid a chance to shine. You don’t need to be a fast runner or a great actor to be a winner. Just take a look below at some of the 1400+ kids who are here to have fun, compete, and learn a few new moves along the way.
Listen here, we talked to organizer Kathleen Westlake about all the excitement:
