episode #263 – raise ya voice!

Every year, CFMU 93.3FM turns to the Hamilton community to help support the station’s operating expenses through donations. Whether it’s $5, $30, or $200, it’s all greatly appreciated, and it all goes to keeping independent, community programming on our local air-waves.

We here at myboytheriotgirl think that an investment in community radio is a no-brainer: for the price of a couple of lattes, you can keep a slice of the airwaves safe for unique local programming like CFMU’s Sunday, a smorgasbord of cultural programming, from Lithuanian to Latin American.

This year, a $30 donation gets you a Friends of CFMU card, good at a variety of Hamilton venues, businesses and attractions like This Ain’t Hollywood, Dr. Disc and the Art Gallery of Hamilton.

And of course, you’ll also keep shows like ours, or Indie-licious, on-air, playing independent music from around the block and around the world. No top-40 or corporate playlists, just a mix of music you won’t hear anywhere else on the dial.

So without further ado, we present this year’s fundraising show, featuring a preview of the new Andrew Bird album, Break It Yourself. As always, we also have a sampling of new and upcoming releases (Band of Skulls, Dirty Ghosts, Sun Kil Moon), and old favourites (Hayden, Doves).

As always, thanks for listening, and for raising your voice by supporting CFMU!
