CHMA sends a HUGE thanks to all the CHMA alumni and visiting radio hosts who took part in our special Sappyfest programming! If you were able to hear some of their broadcasts, you knew you were tuning in to something pretty special. We can’t wait until next year when they’ll hopefully all be back!

Still reminiscing over this year’s Sappyfest? Listen CHMA’s coverage of Sackville’s world famous festival of music and art. You’ll hear day by day reviews featuring interview with artists, volunteers and festival goers!

Boardwalk Radio had their first Business Interview with the one and only: Dave Epworth. Dave is currently the new owner of Mel’s Tearoom located on Bridge Street in Sackville. When Dave is not managing and cooking for Mel’s he is rehearsing and playing live music. In this interview, Dave talks about his past with Mel’s, new changes he has made to Mel’s and his visions for the future of the Diner. Tune in to hear more!

Boardwalk Radio spoke with Edward Knuckles the owner of Knuckles Truffles and a Sackville community member. Edward started this local truffle business five years ago at the Sackville Farmers Market after moving to the community following a successful career in Toronto as a classical singer, actor and dresser for professional productions. During this interview Edward talks about the experiences he has had working in a variety of different professions and what they have taught him. He also reveals future plans for his business.


Tune in Thursdays at 1:30pm for the month of March to hear “Revistiation” a creative nonfiction podcast created by Brendan MaGee, former Interim Programing Director at CKDU in Halifax and co-organizer of Shivering Songs in Fredericton. This four episode podcast is an audio collage encompassing journal entries from November 2016 through November 2017, and features music in heavy rotation during that time, and songs created specifically for this podcast by New Brunswick expats Brookside Mall and Cedric Noel.

Be sure to tune in for this special broadcast!
