    Listening to the Gaels vsWestern game , Basic rules of radio= only ONE person speaking at a time ! Please Tell those loveable idiots doing the broadcast of the game that you cannot discern what the hell is going on when both exuberantly try to describe a play or penalty or ….

    Keep up the efforts guys , when you can’t get to the games anymore they at least provide a verbal glimpse of the action, ’

    YES ! Nice new concrete sidewalks, curbs, and a nice bicycle rack installed in front of CFRC / Queen’s U. Carruthers Hall very recently. That’s a great renovation and improvement in front of the station. Totally agreed with Christine who tweets to CFRC: "Totally makes my day to see we got a bike rack at @cfrc after all my whinging. YAY! Thanks" Yes, I ride my bike too, to CFRC a lot of the time – so the bike rack right out front of the radio station really helps. Thanks to CFRC and to Queen’s University for the renovation / improvement. F.T.

    CFRC Tragically Hip Encore (Special) – Four (4) hours long – is going to be aired tonight – Fri Aug 26 2016 6-10 PM (? Re-aired with an additional hour of Bonus content ? ) CFRC Tweeted, yesterday: “Tune in from 6-10pm tomorrow for the Tragically Hip Tribute Encore! 4 hours of love for The Hip brought to you by our community!” – so I hope it’s being mentioned “On-Air” at CFRC today … I’m sure it is … and it looks like the word is getting out quickly anyway – being re-tweeted and shared around – that’s great – and that is an excellent decision by CFRC / by The Station – to re-air this Tragically Hip Special. I’m telling my contacts too. Thank you CFRC for this Encore Special. F.T.

    KINGSTON BLUES FEST is on starting today and going all weekend til Sunday (Aug 25 -28). I left a 3 pg photocopy of detailed schedules at the station, with the Programming Manager – Tash – and they were put in the PSA binder in the main control room CR2 . If you’re a programmer on air – check out that schedule. There are several outdoor stages, many indoor venues (bars etc.) and many bands/musicians playing at various times and places. The venues are mostly around the downtown area.

    Should be good. See you aroun’ F.T.

    Hello, on August 18 at 6 pm I listened to this wonderful interview you had with an indigenous woman named Chi Chi (?), a Cree from Hope, BC. Is there any way to contact her?

    Wish to inform CFRC Community:

    CFRC RADIO CLUB Constitution (2013) and 1st “new” RADIO CLUB MEETING MINUTES (May 1 2016 meeting – new Team) have been posted, hard copy, on the CFRC Radio Club bulletin board inside the station. Can be viewed there in person. fyi The Constitution is an older 2013 version and I’m told will undergo review and update in a process that will go through to FEB 2017 to allow input from all. F.T. [ They were posted there a couple weeks before Aug 8 2016 – and tried to inform all at that time via email. I was informed of that verbally and then saw them myself on the bulletin board. If interested – I would read them very carefully – esp. the Meeting Minutes – right to the end. There are also some paper slips pinned to the bulletin board for written FEEDBACK to the Radio Club. I’ve filled out a few myself. Thanks. F.T.

    Hi, on Sunday August 6th around noon I heard the singer Isabel Bayrakdarian being played on your station. I’m interested in learning which piece of music it was and from which CD. It was beautiful! Thanks

    BELLFONIX. FYI – Nice band: BELLFONIX – plays Tir Nan Og Irish Pub (bar in downtown Kingston, beside City Hall, 200 Ontario St. aka inside the “PG – Prince George Hotel”) tomorrow night – Friday Jan 8, 2016 at 10 PM – according to the info I am seeing ( I have seen them before at Toucan. They do many nice covers, but some originals too, if I remember correctly. Nice band, nice singer, cover nice of a variety of music. Check out their facebook page: BELLFONIX – they say they’re hometown is Kingston – so a local band I think – their own facebook description: “We perform an array of covers! Groovy dance tunes from 1965 to present!” F.T.

    Hello Ms. Clemens. I hope you will take time to watch/listen to this great Christmas video/song performed by a Kingston band, The Banters. It’s an original song.

    Dec 11, 2015 – I commented on CFRC Facebook page, below AGM notice:

    [ I’ll add it here too, on CFRC website,, Contact Us, station feedback box ]

    “I’m commenting a little late now on the AGM, Nov 30, 2015, but I went and GREAT work CFRC, all mgmt and staff and volunteers over the past year or so, with things generally and all the changes and issues, technical and otherwise at the station. Challenging I’m sure. I wanted to say also – GREAT work CFRC and Golden Words – on being up to speed on that recent AMS funding issue thing (again), the recent presentations you both did – CFRC & Golden Words – I read about them. Yes – the funding thing from AMS is very important. Gotta keep on top of those issues, and from what I read – you’re both right on top that issue. F.T. "

    Sat. Oct 17-15. I won 2 tickets to see Remi Bolduc (jazz quartet), and I did. They were exceptional and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to experience their music…Thank you so much. Bolduc is a genius, and his band is world class.

    I am a Boomer with a rich history in 70’s rock music. I just clicked on CFRC Monday morning the 5th and so enjoyed the selection of music. Thank you- keep the music flowing of both classics we don’t hear often, and of course new music.
