    This issue, #289, is dedicated to the memory of Kandy Burns. Kandy, also known as Phoenix Camerah, was one of the first on-air personalities to host a show on the fledgling Max Ink Radio internet station back in 2011. Kandy lived in southern Ontario but her sister Leona lives here in Madison and is known as Mrs. K, wife of Max Ink Radio’s Jimmy K. This started a Niagara-Madison connection as Kandy mixed southern Ontario local music and Wisconsin local music into her show. It was an odd fit, but Kandy’s dedication and dual city friendships made her show successful. Phoenix Camerah introduced me to a number of bands that I love from her neck of the woods. As a photographer, Phoenix Camerah caught the Niagara music scene like no other, amassing a prolific photo archive. Phoenix Camerah will be missed but not forgotten. She has been added to the Max Ink Hall of Fame.
