Listen to the CBC?
Whether on CBC Radio One, Sirius 137 or online at cbc.ca, be sure to catch Nora Young's show "Spark" at 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. EST on January 2nd, 2008 to hear some interesting technological New Year's Resolutions!
You might be surprised who you hear from...
I'm writing this the day before strategically so that you'll receive this with enough time to catch the CBC Radio One show "Spark" at 11:30 a.m. EST on January 2nd 2008 (date fixed - thanks Dan!).
With the New Year coming fast and furious, the crew at Spark decided to throw together a contest wherein 20 people would be selected to win a funky Spark bag if their technology New Year's resolutions struck the fancy of their team.
I happened to be in my car at the time and as soon as I heard Nora Young say to go to the Spark blog, I nearly dropped everything I was doing (parked the car first, of course) and ran to my lap top to leave my 2008 New Year's resolutions on the Spark blog as a comment. The resolutions had to be about technology, and being surrounded by it every day, the list was an easy one for me to compile.
The good news is that out of over 60 responses, mine was one of the 20 chosen to win a Spark bag!
Since my resolutions were just what they were looking for, I was asked to leave a voice message reciting my resolutions on their phone system to air on the show for this week.
Here's the broadcast schedule for Spark:
CBC Radio One:
Wednesdays at 11:30 a.m. (12:00 NT)
Saturdays at 4:00 p.m. (4:30 NT)
Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. ET on Sirius Satellite 137.
Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. ET on Sirius Satellite 137.
If you miss the show (it could happen), I believe there is also podcast that you can subscribe to in iTunes and catch the show after it's been published through their podcast feed.
I'll be listening in and can't wait to hear the other resolutions that were submitted in the New Year!
P.S. As you might know, there is another New Year's resolutions contest going on in the voice over world. Check out Voice-Overs.com/Forum/ for details.
