2015 DirtyNeedles / CJSW Funding Drive Episode!!



That’s right! It’s that time of the year again…Time for the annual CJSW FUNDING DRIVE!!

The CJSW Funding Drive is the one time a year that we ask our beautiful listeners to give something back to help us provide you with the incredible programming that makes us Calgary’s BEST radio station.

Our funding drive show goes down Friday Oct. 23, 2015 from 9-10pm!!! You can call 403.220.5000 at that time to pledge!

For our long time fans and friends you know all about the drive and what it entails…and for those who don’t, you can visit the CJSW website for all the info.

The station has made pledging to your favourite show even easier by creating a new website where you can see all the pledge levels and even make your pledge online.


You can even pledge towards our show right now on that very website!!! Just make sure you put “Dirty Needles” in the box under “Which show or programmer did you want to pledge towards?” when you check out so we can ensure you get our show’s special extra incentives, because as always, on top of the stuff you get from the station, we here at DirtyNeedles have rinsed some pretty good mixes this year.

First off, is our ever popular Best of 2015 2CD mix. Over 2 hours of the years best true school hip-hop joints and charged up club bangers…featuring Kendrick, Kanye, Drake, Bronson, Fetty, Chance, Oddisee, French Montana, A$AP Rocky, a mini tribute to the king Sean Price (RIP)…and much more!  Oh, it’s lit.



Next up, 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of A Tribe Called Quest’s debut album “People’s Instictive Travels and The Paths of Rhythm“. Widely regarded as one of the greatest rap groups of all time, Tribe and their Native Tongue counterparts ushered in a new generation of hip-hop in the late 80s and early 90s which went on to define the sound of hip-hop’s golden era.  DJ WyzeWon compiled a 2 CD mix celebrating Tribe’s legacy, overflowing with b-sides, remixes, unreleased gems and the sure shot classics you’ve grown to love over the last two decades. Big shout to DJ Statik for helping out on the cuts!  Can we kick it? Yes we can!!



We love R&B…as should you…and since we love R&B, DJ Tanner has once again compiled a mix of the years most buttery smooth R&B grooves to get you in the mood.  D’angelo, The Internet, Miguel Janelle Monae, Jidenna, Tamia, Sevyn Streeter, BJ The Chicago Kid, The Dream, Jodeci and Janet…Miss Jackson if you’re nasty…all make an appearance…and many more!  And this this cover art tho…


Getting your hands (and ears) on these mixes is easy.
