Guest Post: Pulling the Plug

Hello Pull the Plug listeners! To those of you who are saying "who the hell is this chick?", let me tell you a little tale to introduce myself. 
Shannon and I got smashed one night, which happened many nights, and we made sweet, sweet broadcasting love (which also happened many nights...and days...and afternoons). And this one time in particular we created a radio baby. We were a little scared at first, but we talked, decided to keep it, and named it "Pull the Plug". We spent tons of time compiling lists of our favourite acoustic songs (along with the uber rad Justin Godelie) and then presented our ideas to CJIQ. PTP ain't gonna have no rejection, so off we were to bring the best acoustic tunes and our sexiest radio voices to the K-W listeners. Let me tell you, it was like magical audio lovemaking with your ears and we were delighted to be ear-boning you once a week. 

Unfortunately, I ran out of the end of my OSAP, couldn't get a decent paying job, and became a broke college grad. This meant I had to move away from my beloved Shannon, Justin, PTP, and all it's listeners. I have missed all the good times, and because car ownership in Toronto is so bloody expensive, it's been hard to visit and guest host. 

With PTP essentially "growing up", it's like now is the time for it to go "off to college" and explore. The CJIQ nest has been nice, but it's time to move on to bigger and better things! Obviously this last show can't be the best, 'cause PTP is always orgasmically good, but I know it'll go out with a bang. To all the listeners, guest hosts, and musical guests, thanks a million for your support. Keep listening, tweeting, and spreading the word about the new podcast, 'cause it's only the beginning, baby! 

Acoustically yours, 
Carolyn Roberts

HUGE thanks to Carolyn, with out whom Pull the Plug would have never been born. We truly wish you could have joined us on our final Radio Broadcast, but know it won't be the last we hear our C-Rock on PTP. Follow Carolyn on Twitter.
