Well FM-Phasis is underway. Hoo, doggies it's going to be a fun couple of weeks!
What is FM-Phasis? Well, it's CFCR's annual fundraising drive that helps us earn much-needed dollars to help us stay on-air, and offer the amazingness that is our wide range of programming. Our goal is $70,000, and for my show, it's $960. I'm not the best at cultivating pledges, but there are amazing incentives for donating, outlined here! It includes prizes/gift certificates to choose from, sweet merch, and some amazing grand prize draws. So if you're so inclined, and you like the music and musings I share, you can donate anytime online, and just indicate the name, day, and time of the program - Green Eggs and Ham, Thursdays, 6-8 am. Every little bit helps, and thank you so much for listening!
CFCR is an important cornerstone of life here in Saskatoon as it allows the coming together of passionate people. With a small and mighty staff and a league of volunteers and volunteer hosts, we try to touch the lives of many. We appeal to music lovers of nearly every genre, people from various cultures, and we have poignant spoken word shows discussing everything from psychology to mulch, gender issues to theatre. It's truly a special place. :)
Another way to give to the station is by heading to one of our upcoming concerts. They're affordable and all proceeds go to the station. I've indicated, in red, some of the acts from today's playlist who will be performing.
