Sat 9 Dec 2023 to Sun 31 Dec 2023

A magnificent roster of PBS volunteers have provided the soundtrack to our lives and kept the station going  24/7 during the festive season. The office is now open and volunteer opportunities are coming up that we're excited to share with you. 
 
Drive Live is our annual celebration of live music in our music city, featuring live sets from 10 artists across 5 drive time programs from February 19-23, 2024. We invite listeners in to be part of the studio audience in Collingwood and broadcast the experience live on-air. To do this, we need a team of volunteers to support the event and help it run smoothly. Here's a snapshot by Lucas Packett of Drive Live 2023 when Don Glori played:
