Mario lost his first tooth this week. Claudia has gone to Italy and I have been looking after the boys.  We are going to Toronto to see Zoobomafoo!
From the January 14, 2004 Ottawa Sun:
Searching my dial, I was extremely frustrated Saturday -- where's my music station? I was very sorry to read about the cancellation of 101.1 Xfm.

Xfm played a big role in our community. I was always impressed by its charity, contests and local activities. Rogers might be surprised to hear that their station was listened to by many outside the 18-24 age bracket.

As a 38-year-old parent, I always enjoyed listening to the "new" songs on Xfm, as did my two children. We will now turn back to CKCU and wait until someone returns to fill the major hole in the Ottawa radio market for new alternative rock. We don't all want to hear the recycled music of yesterday.
