Felicia Goldstein comes to Tillsonburg by way of New York, New York; Montreal, Quebec and London, Ontario. While studying at McGill University the radio bug bit her. There she was the 6 o'clock news girl on the university's radio station but being the practical woman that she is, she went to Teacher's College where she became a high school English teacher. After 25 years as an English as a Second Language teacher the fever struck again.

She enthusiastically returned to radio and has been at Easy 101 since 2007.  Being a virtual insomniac, the evenings that she spends at CKOT are both a joy and a delight!

Join Felicia from 7:00 pm to midnight.

This is a little shooter that makes a wonderful alternative to green beer on St. Patrick's Day! The Irish Flag cocktail feels light and refreshing – definitely a candy drink, but with flavors that are deliciously rich.

Irish Flag Drink Recipe

  • 1/3 shot green creme de menthe
  • 1/3 shot Licor 43
  • 1/3 shot Irish cream

Carefully layer the ingredients in a shot glass in order. Stand back and admire your handy work...Looks just like the flag of Ireland, right?

New research suggests people who pack their workouts into one or two sessions a week lower their risk of dying over roughly the next decade nearly as much as people who exercise more often. Researchers in England found even people who get less exercise than recommended have less risk than those who don't break a sweat at all. The risk of dying was about 30 per cent lower in weekend warriors and insufficient exercisers versus those who were inactive. Experts say any amount of activity helped cut the risk of dying of heart disease by about 40 per cent, compared with being a couch potato. So the reality is that you don't have to commit to 7 days a week or even 3 to 5 days per week, a measley 1 or 2 days will do you a world of good.

Stay happy, stay healthy this 2017!
