This week we’re bringing you a ~ spooky ~ recap of our FunDrive episode that aired LIVE in Edmonton last week. FunDrive is CJSR 88.5fm’s annual fundraiser and thanks to you we surpassed our goal! For this show, we summoned the ghosts of past terra informers and reminisced with these apparitions about the best parts of community radio and podcasting!

Last week was our annual CJSR FunDrive! What a success! Thanks to all of you, we broke our $1500 goal and raised over $1600!
The FunDrive is CJSR’s annual fundraising event where volunteers collect pledges from listeners, fans, friends, and family to help support this awesome local and independent radio station. It is because of your generosity that keeps community radio alive! The money raised during FunDrive goes towards running, maintaining or replacing the equipment we use at the station, and also helps to provide amazing training opportunities so that new volunteers with no experience can learn all sorts of skills like recording, interviewing, or mixing music.
Green Drinks will be hosted by The Local Good at the Yellowhead Brewery on Wednesday, November 7 at 7:00pm. The evening’s theme, YEG Allies, will feature facilitated discussions around indigenous relations and treaties, supporting the LGBTQ2S+ community, feminism, antiracism, and mental health.
