Soon the Portage Terriers will be off to Fort McMurray and we want to make sure they're sent off in style!  The "Fan Fest Pep Rally" will take place this Wednesday in the PCU lobby from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. It's a chance for all the fans to congratulate the boys and get autographs and pictures with them.  There will be a BBQ with all proceeds going to the Salvation Army, who will also be on hand accepting donations for the local food bank.  This is all made possible by generous donations from our sponsors - Prairie Abattoir, Old Dutch, OMG's, Portage Co-op, Golden West Radio, Pratt's Wholesale, Pepsi, and Pro Image Signs.

Mix 96 will also be on hand during the event playing music and keeping the good times rolling! See you there!

Everything was better in the '80s and '90s, right? Your dad rocked a fanny pack, shoulder pads were in and the motto the more hairspray the better was taken very seriously. These days, you've dumped the shoulder pads and Cheers is only a rerun – but Def Leppard continues to rock on their world tour! With 100 million records sold, Def Leppard is returning to the MTS Centre April 29th! 


All this week, listen for your cue to call during the Mix morning show. Guess whether we're talking about the '80s or '90s and qualify to win tickets to see Def Leppard! The grand prize draw is Friday morning. Tickets on sale now through live nation
