FunDrive 2021: Audio Obscura

| & filed under FunDrive, Special Events.

Our annual fundraiser is integral to the success of Edmonton’s only volunteer powered, listener supported, community radio station.

2021-11-05 3:48 PM – CURRENT FUNDRIVE 2021 TOTAL: $110,488!!! Thank you dear listeners!

This year, we are focusing on how CJSR programs and programmers aim to highlight the more obscure corners of music and news worlds. Even in tough times, we strive to expose voices, perspectives, stories, and music that are often underrepresented in mainstream media.

From 7AM on October 29 to 6PM on November 6, we are asking you – our listeners and community members – to show support for independent radio and make a donation to your favourite CJSR program. 

So mark your calendars and start searching your couch cushions, breaking open piggy banks, and rifling through coat pockets, because every dollar helps us reach our goal of $100,000!
