Years ago, a man named Moses brought a message to the masses. Last week, David and I had the pleasure of meeting another Moses with a message - the new owner of CFMX Classical 96.3 FM, Moses Znaimer. If you are my age, you are probably more likely to associate Znaimer with CITY-TV, CP-24, and rock & roll than with classical music, but then we're all getting a little older, aren't we. Moses and the gang at CFMX threw a lovely holiday party at their studio at Queen and River Streets in Toronto last Wednesday night. Moses' message for the new millennium: "Classical music has always been cool - stay tuned for exciting new developments at CFMX as we take it from cool to hip."
We were entertained by Canada's own Primadonna, Mary Lou Fallis, who lead us through a live to air, fun selection of holiday songs, including a lively rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas. Ste. Anne's has been a supporter of CFMX since it's humble beginnings in a small studio right here in Cobourg. Back then, there were quite a few sceptics who weren't sure an all classical radio station would survive for very long. Well, if you put any stock in what Moses thinks, this classical music fad isn't going anywhere soon. Tune in to relax, and listen for our current ads taken from our 2006 Testimonial Contest; Real People Talking About Ste. Anne's Spa. By the way, if you happen to be in the CFMX neighbourhood at Queen and River, you have to stop and enjoy a meal at one of my all time favourite little Italian restaurants - Fusilli, on the south east corner - tell Josepi that Jim sent you.
