Some might say, not me mind you, but some would say they have faces for radio. Ten strong, the Mountain FM personalities have shaved off all the facial hair on those faces - all with the goal to grow funky moustaches all to help raise money and awareness for prostate cancer.

"We're the Mountain FM MoBros on the Movember.com website," said morning DJ and Movember participant John Helm. "We did a shaving on the morning show on Nov. 1. It was really funny. I had my fiancé on the line. She was not impressed. It's a good thing it's all for a good cause."

Helm has had a moustache for the last three years since meeting his fiancé.

"I was on a softball team and we all just grew moustaches for nationals," he said.

For anyone wanting to donate to the Mountain FM team, you can go to their Facebook site or go to ca.movember.com and search for Mountain FM.

"The target is to raise awareness for men's health with a focus on prostate cancer," said Helm.
