Jill Barber loves CFRC & You Should Too
Today marks the start of the annual funding drive of the Queen’s University/Kingston Community radio station CFRC, . You should open your hearts (and your wallets) and give, give, give. Not only will you be supporting what is, in my humble opinion, the best radio station around, but you will also be able to pick up some really great swag or tax receipts. For as little as $15 you can get a cd and larger donations will get you gift certificates to resturaunts, via rail, Goodlife etc. etc. and for every $10 you get entered to win plane tickets to anywhere in Canada.
Between now and Februrary 11th you can call to pledge @ 613-533-CFRC (2372), online here, or in person at the station in Lower Carruthers Hall (beside the bookstore). They are hosting all kinds of cool events, so you can donate there, too:
