This week, from February 8-17, is the the 8th annual Funding Drive for CFRC 101.9fm – Kingston’s only volunteer-based, listener-supported radio station and the home of radio613. CFRC relies on listener donations for almost 20% of its operating revenue. The goal for this year’s Funding Drive is $25,000, to be raised across 10 days of special programming and community events.
CFRC has been a a perpetual source of support for radio613 over the years – helping us with phone patches, ordering new klezmer releases, providing production feedback, or just generally being an oasis for ourselves and others to engage in creative self-expression. The radio613 collective really would not exist as we do without the station. To continue broadcasting Jewish politics, culture, and religious life from an autonomous perspective, we’re asking for your financial help…
Today, Monday, February 11 is our funding drive show! Please consider making a donation during the show, from 7-8pmET by calling 613-533-2372. Charitable tax receipts are available and to show our appreciation to folks who make a pledge, the radio613 collective will send you a compilation CD of some of the best stories, poetry, and music we have featured on radio613 – in the mail! It would also be our pleasure to give an on-air mention or play a song request for you on the show tonight. As always, you can tune in online at http://www.cfrc.ca or for those of you within the 613-area code – 101.9fm on your radio dial!
Thank you very much in advance for your generosity.
