  CJSW's new broadcast towerPDF files may take a moment to load

The CBC tower on Broadcast Hill will be broadcasting a new signal next month. Our own venerable campus and community radio station, CJSW, is hijacking the CBC tower for their own sake.

sunday ritual on pbs: the joy of bob ross. midge, arthritic legs swung over the arm of her lazy-boy, i sat at her elbow. we lived for this: bob ross creating order in the world between newcasts, we watched his hands tap and brush, ten inch afro, greying. happy valley, happy pine. he was a hero, always. no sunset without golden rays, no lakefront without tongue lapping waves. with bob ross in charge the world sang the womb of eden, no false strokes, we were heaven bound.

You roll over and expose

The vulnerable landscape:

Notch rocks in the river, flowing

Under brittle islands,

Down through twin curves

Dusted in cold.

And I'm so easy ready

With toy daggers

retracting on the crust.

Joseph had hoped this night would be quiet. It seemed to him that shifts like those were becoming pleasant surprises when they happened.


The sound of his captain's voice shook him.

"Stay alert?" he thought, "there isn't a Jew in this half of the world who isn't always alert."
