Our annual live broadcast at Supercrawl was jam-packed this year with interviews from the top performers and community groups involved in the magic of Supercrawl's 9th year. A variety of CFMU hosts hit the streets live to air from the AGH Annex in a beautiful sunshine filled room. Check out some of our full interviews below!

First off, we had Lenore Lukasik-Foss start us off for the day! We chat about SACHA and the incredible services they offer Hamilton. Take Back the Night is coming up and we also discuss an awesome new online and texting pilot that they've launched.
