    Just heard that Alysha played one of our songs on her show this morning …. one of our fans over there in Cape Breton has just let me know. I am one half of the UK duo Breeze & Wilson, and we’ve been touring over your way every year since 2007 ….. we’re back again this June and have two concerts in your area.
    Dates are not finalised for all of our concerts as yet, but just wanted to say thanks for all the support your shows have given us over the years.
    all our best wishes
    Graham and Toby

    I was viewing Cape Breton’s website and was checking out some of their artist links when I found a link to your station on one. I viewed your website and decided to check you out – glad I did! Nice mix of music. I’m looking forward to listening to a lot more of your station. My only regret is I can’t receive your signal due to my being located in central/eastern New York state (USA).
