Making a REEF....'er, I mean WREATH!!

On Thursday December 4th, CTV Calgary and Energy 101-5 will be holding a radiothon at the Golden Acre Garden Centre from 9am-9pm for the YWCA "Give the Gift of Safety" campaign. The main objective, is to raise much needed funds for the YWCA Transitional Housing Facility (Mary Dover House) in Calgary.
Over the past couple of weeks, Energy 101-5 and CTV staff, as well as local celebrities have been busy making wreaths at Golden Acres. These wreaths will be auctioned off with proceeds to the YWCA Mary Dover House.
Tonight, Meg Tucker (of the Freeway and Meg Morning Show), our Goodwill Ambassador, Carlos and myself made an "Energy" Wreath. Our dear Spanish friend Carlos, had no idea what a wreath was....infact, he confided to Meg that he thought we were making a "reef"! Ha! We think the wreath turned out beautifully...and hope you might think so too and bid on it, on December 4th!!
The Mary Dover House is a second stage shelter and home for up to 90 women and their children who've been left homeless from a crisis situation or to escape domestic violence. It takes $100 a day to keep a bed open for a woman and her children.
Again, on December 4th, we'll be encouraging you to call or drop off your donation!! More details on "Give the Gift of Safety", can be found on our radio station website,!!

Misheard Lyrical Words.....

You're sitting in your car, listening to the Energy 101-5 "All E-Quest Lunch". Madonna pumps through the speakers, and you start belting it out....."Like a Virgin, touched for the 31st time"!! Um, wrong.
Don't feel bad, cuz you're in good company! There are websites dedicated to popular song lyrics that are commonly misheard. One of the better ones is
Today I asked "Energy Nation" about lyrics in tracks they've commonly screwed up. The response was overwhelming....and I laughed through my entire show. I will be sharing what Energy listeners shared with me, next week. If you'd like to add any of your misheard lyrics to my audio montage, please call me!! 1-866-467-101-5! My mid-day show runs weekdays, 10am-3pm.
I leave you with a track I used to mess up as a kid, from the
Bonnie Tyler song "It's a Heartache".....I used to think she was singing, "It's a Hard Egg"! DUH!
