‘Finding a Voice’ on CFRC 101.9fm is a weekly 2 hour spoken word program that airs every Friday afternoon from 4-6pm EST (Canada). Its first show went out on air on May 7, 2010 as a 1 hour show, expanding to 2 hours in 2013.
The show’s primary focus is on poetry, but also includes all written, read or performed genres, and most shows include just a spattering of music. Of the programs aired, the vast majority feature recorded local and somewhat local readings, performances and events. From time to time, the show offers itself up to live in-studio interviews and readings, and also occasionally airs telephone interviews and readings from more distant locales. Those telephone readings, though sporadic, have covered a number of cities from coast to coast in Canada, including one from the U.S.
Bruce Kauffman, creator and host of the show set up a blogspace for it in February, 2012 at https://findingavoiceoncfrcfm.wordpress.com/ and it contains all shows dating back to December of 2011. All shows are saved there indefinitely.
