Clock STILL ticking on annual jazz breakfast fundraiser

Every year, Information Morning in Fredericton puts on a special live show as part of the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival. Festival musicians selflessly donate their time, and get up at ungodly hours, to perform live on the show, which originates from the Boyce Farmers' Market. Hundreds of people cram in to enjoy a great breakfast, hear some super music and meet their favourite CBC personalities. And to top it all off, the money raised goes towards the music programs at our area high schools.

Well, this lockout puts that in jeopardy. It's just one small example of the many community initiatives that could be lost as a result of this senseless situation.

This year's show is scheduled for Sept. 16. If you want to speak up for the jazz breakfast, you could send an e-mail to CBC's vice-president of radio at jane_chalmers@cbc.ca.
