Did you know that CFRC is Canada’s oldest radio station? It’s true! Thanks to community support, CFRC has been going strong for almost a century. This Friday marks the start of their fourth annual funding drive, which runs until the 8th of February. The goal is to raise $18,000 through community events and donations over the ten day campaign. Last year’s goal of $17,000 was easily surpassed, so there’s no reason why CFRC can’t do it again!
You can help out by making a donation by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372), online, in person (Lower Carruthers Hall, Queen’s University), or by attending one of their many exciting events:
Sat Jan 31, 7:30pm and Sun Feb 1, 2:30pm – The Kingston Symphony presents Virtuoso Variations at The Grand Theatre.

Community radio is an important part of Queen’s, and Kingston’s collective identity. CFRC provides innovative and alternative radio programming that enriches and challenges the academic and cultural life of both the University and the Limestone City. It supplies us with new and exciting ideas and provides a place for the musicians of our burgeoning scene to show themselves off. Come out and help keep our station alive and well!
