CFRC would like to send a massive thank you to all of our listeners and supporters for showing us live during our recent, 12th annual Funding Drive! Donations are still trickling in, but at last check, we managed to raise $20,334.65. While we may be short of our $25,000 goal, we got a big boost from last year's numbers, and we couldn't have done it without you. Whether you made a donation/pledge, told a friend about the campaign, or attended one of our Funding Drive events, we are extremely grateful for your support, and thank you so much for backing campus/community radio. We would also like to give a shout out to some local businesses/organizations that helped us out along the way: Novel Idea, The Screening Room, the Grad Club, Sir John's Public House, the Queen's University Observatory, and Cogeco TV Kingston. We will be sure to update you on our final total, but for now, know that your money will help us to fulfill our mandate and mission: To provide innovative and alternative radio programming that enriches and challenges the academic and cultural life of Queen's University and Kingston communities, to provide members with the opportunity to participate and gain skills and experience in the collective operation of a radio station whose programming and practices are not constrained by demands for profit and to empower and celebrate the diversity of Kingston and Queen’s through innovative, noncommercial, community-oriented radio programming and broadcast learning opportunities.
Calling all would-be radioheads! CFRC is once again looking for new programmers to join our ranks. Whether it's hosting a show, helping us produce amazing creative, or even contributing to our arts/news/sports collectives, we need your help!
