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!
