Recently, on March 6th, Seth Jex released a letter to the UNBC Student body on his frustration with the apathy he had witnessed at UNBC. You can read the letter here if you haven't yet. The letter received both support and backlash. Yesterday he sat down with CFUR and talked more about the controversial letter and the response he has gotten from students.

On tonight's show, tune in for more from the weekly themes: Tide Lines, Julie Fowlis' album "Alterum", Dougie McCance's debut album, and the traditions of North Uist. As well, tune in for tunes from the Isle of Islay, Isobel Ann Martin, and more!
Sometimes an issue is beyond your control. You may feel powerless. Some folks take charge and get confrontational, some run away, some freeze, some... wait it out. It's not such a bad strategy to wait it out, but one day you might be struck with the feeling that you're waiting your life away. You may ask yourself, can I live with this? Do I need to make a change?
Perhaps... While you decide. Check out these tunes.
On this show: A wide representation of various Celtic regions: Cape Breton, Scotland (both Gaelic), Ireland, and Wales. Just a note: the Irish song "Aon Focal Eile" (near the end of the show) just means "One Other Word"...or "Just another word". :-)
Have a listen to more from Julie Fowlis, and Dougie McCance as well as the Irish Rovers, Ishbel MacAskill, Gwenno, and more!
