CFCR FM-Phasis (Sept 18 to Oct 1)
Our friends at CFCR Community Radio in Saskatoon are having their annual FM-Phasis! It’s a fundraising drive to support an awesome, local, community radio station.
We love CFCR Community Radio! Many of our writers have been volunteers there or have their own shows like Punch Radio, Reel-to-Reel, and many more. They play great music and they provide a service to the community. Local radio is the heartbeat of a community and CFCR has a lot of wonderful voices bringing us entertainment and information on a variety of topics. So support them by supporting FM-Phasis!
You can find more information at cfcr.ca, but here’s how it all works:
CFCR is proud to present the FM-Phasis fundraising drive for 2021 – “Still Playing It Cool“. This year marks our 30th year of volunteer broadcasting at 90.5FM in Saskatoon!
FM-Phasis is essential to CFCR’s existence and accounts for 15-20% of CFCR’s annual operating budget. We are hopeful that we can reach a goal of $70,000 this year, so please consider donating today to help keep Community Radio alive & well here in Saskatoon!
The funds raised during past FM-Phasis campaigns have been directed towards continued improvements and upgrades for the station, including New Studio Equipment, Remote Recording Equipment (ie: USB Microphones, etc), Production Studio Renovations, Transmitter Upgrades, Security System, Webcasting, and the CFCR Mobile App. These projects (and more) are ongoing to help strengthen the listening experience here at CFCR.
