Hello, you're listening to Mostly Mozart on CJLY in Nelson 93.5fm, Kootenay Coop Radio. My name is Tom Clegg. Mostly Mozart is sponsored by Tom Clegg.
I have several public service announcements for you today. Or perhaps they're just self service announcements, which feel like public service announcements because they might make your life a better place to be. But I'll try to phrase them as if they were PSAs, so I can feel better about the fact that I'm not going to tell you about any real ones.
The Kootenay Internet Communications Society offers free web hosting and email service for nonprofit groups in the Kootenays. If your nonprofit group is currently paying for web hosting -- or if your web site is on some so-called free server that forces you to advertise for someone you don't care about -- then you should get in touch with KICS at email@example.com or visit their web site at kics.bc.ca. KICS has been doing this since the mid 1990s for all kinds of local nonprofits, including the Streetfest, the Nelson Public Library, the City of Montrose, and Kootenay Coop Radio. Their web site again is kics.bc.ca.
On a related note, Tom Clegg offers free web hosting for himself; for example, you can read a transcript of this show at mozart.fiction.org.
You're listening to Mostly Mozart, etc.
I'm going to read another thing that's not a PSA but might sound like one.
Don't trust anyone! People are greedy, and they will lie to your face if that's what it takes to get some money. For more information, contact anyone who says things like, "put it in writing." Once again, people will lie to your face just to make some money. Not me, of course -- just other people. The only people you know you can trust are the dead ones. Like Mozart.
Here's something else that might sound sort of like a PSA:
If you know somebody who smells bad, that's your olfactory nerve working! For more information about the olfactory nerve, and for an example of how to use the word "transduced" in a sentence: go to google.com, type "olfactory nerve", and click the search button. For more information on hygiene, talk to someone who smells nice. Once again, the olfactory nerve is responsible for your sense of smell. That's o-l-f-a-c-t-o-r-y (for those of you who can't see how things are spelled without hyphens between all the letters).
