We stopped by the Island of Lights to hand out some delicious coffee and hot chocolate courtesy of Tim Horton's!  It was all part of the Community Coffee Run as Mix 96 along with Tim Horton's will be making a few stops through the winter months serving up some delicious drinks!  Up next will be the Portage Terriers' home game set for Saturday night at the PCU Centre, see you there!

It's the time of year for Christmas concerts! Here are some pictures and a video from the Fort La Reine School Christmas concert.

Sugar photo 

Here at Mix 96, we took 'Pour Some Sugar On Me' literal. 

Mix 96 is pouring some sugar in your stocking with a crack at Def Leppard tickets April 29th at the MTS Centre, presented by Live Nation. The English rock band started up in 1977 at a spoon factory near Bramall Lane, Sheffield. Def Leppard consists of guitarists Vivian Campbell and Phil Collen, Rick 'Sav' Savage on bass, drummer Rick Allen and front man Joe Elliott. With 100 million records sold, Def Leppard is working on a new studio album.
