CFCR FM-Phasis 2017 Is Coming!

CFCR Community Radio has long been a staple in the lives of many Feedback Society readers and contributors.  I have been on the Board of Directors in the past, and I now co-host Reel to Reel, CFCR’s movie talk show, where Skot, Logan, Tyler, and I talk movies every Friday evening at 6:30.

Whether you’re into talk, music, or the great city of Saskatoon and its people, CFCR is an important voice in our community.  Every year they hold their FM-Phasis funding drive, which helps to do a variety of things around the station.  So I wanted to take the time to urge you to donate to this awesome community radio station.  This year’s drive runs from September 30th to October 13th.  (If they ask you about donating to a particular show/host, let them know your favourite, or just go ahead and tell them Reel to Reel!).

Here is some basic info about FM-Phasis, swiped directly from CFCR!

CFCR is proud to present the FM-Phasis fundraising drive for 2017 – Low Emission Transmission! This year is marks our 26th year of volunteer broadcasting at 90.5FM in Saskatoon and area!

The funds raised during FM-Phasis campaign go towards improving your listening experience, from upgrades to our equipment to ever-expanding and improving our online presence (remember, you can listen to us online at cfcr.ca, or via the mobile app). There are lots of exciting things happening around FM-Phasis, including metric tonnes of prizes, Grand Prize and Early Bird Prize draws, as well as the FM-Phasis Fundraiser shows – a series of exciting events spread across of the funding drive.

Here is your complete guide to FM-Phasis 2017!

FM-Phasis runs from Saturday, September 30th to Friday, October 13th. There are lots of ways to easily pledge your support to CFCR:

  • Land-Based or Mobile Telephone: You can call your favourite host while he or she is on the air. Just call the studio at (306) 242-5002 and the host will take your pledge right then and there! You can also call the office line at (306) 664-6678 to give your pledge information to one of our hard-working volunteers. We are ready, willing and able to accept cash, cheque, MasterCard and Visa as payment for your phone-in pledge.
  • Personal Computer, Laptop Computer or “Smart” Telephone: We are happy to offer a secure PayPal donation option, so you can be anywhere in the world with the internet and show your support to CFCR. You don’t even need a PayPal account to pay online, just a major credit card. Be sure to specify which CFCR program you want to donate to so each host can really feel the love. And hey, while you’re at it, you can download the CFCR mobile app for iPhone and Android!
  • In person: If you’re in the mood for a stroll, we’ll be happy to welcome you (and your donations) at our downtown Saskatoon headquarters. We’re located on the 3rd floor of 267 3rd Avenue South (stair access only, with our sincere apologies on not being wheelchair accessible). Our offices are open extended hours during FM-Phasis. We’ll be here to take your pledge from 9am to 9pm, seven days a week. We accept cash, cheque, Visa, MasterCard and debit on-site.
