CML is back for your Friday, and at 7:15 AM, we learn about a Halifax-based charity that helps children half a world away in Kenya.  At 7:45 AM,  we’ll have a 200 million-year-old tooth in the studio as we preview the opening weekend of the Fundy Geological Museum. At 8:15 AM, it’s time to carb up as we learn a great pasta dish with Chef Mark Marchmant, with a little help from top gymnast Ellie Black!  Then at 8:40 AM, we’ll wet our whistles as we celebrate craft brewing on the East Coast in advance of the Full House Craft Beer Fest. Plus, Cyril is fixing leaking basements – such a nice guy!

Join us for all that, plus the latest Atlantic Canada weather forecast with Alyse Hand, and up to date news headlines and stories with Priya Sam, starting bright and early at 7 AM!
