On September 30, catch Terra Informa live! We’ll be broadcasting live from CJSR this week in support of FunDrive: CJSR’s annual fundraising week. Terra Informa is produced by CJSR 88.5 FM in Edmonton, a campus and community radio station at the University of Alberta. You’re just as likely to catch us playing dance beats and Somali rap as environmental news. It’s our 30th anniversary this year, and we rely on listener donations to support the independent reporting you hear from your community on Terra Informa every week.
Help us reach our fundraising goal of $885 on September 30th and you’ll be entered to win these fabulous prizes from Apache Seeds and the Edmonton Naturalization Group. You’ll also get great CJSR swag! Tune in online or at 88.5 FM at 5 pm MST for our hour-long show. Then donate to FunDrive by calling in during the show or by going to CJSR’s website.
Listen in for stories about reporting on the environment from CBC Radio’s Torah Kachur, and from the University of Alberta’s Dr. Dwayne Donald on reframing our education system to include sharing history through story. You’ll also hear physician Alan Lockwood explain why Alberta sticks out like a sore thumb on one big source of air pollution — and no, it’s not the tar sands. And we’ll have a long-time Terra Informa volunteer in studio to share an insider’s take on producing community radio.
It’s going to be a fun show. Thanks for listening and thanks for your support!
