CJAM Pledge Drive: Oct 29 to Nov 5

You can donate anytime on the CJAM website; however, for listeners to The ShakeUp we’ ll have local author Mary Ann Mulhern in the studio to read excerpts from her latest book and you’ll have a chance to grab an autographed copy! More info to come later in the week. Call in at 519-971-3630

Gear up everyone! Our Annual Pledge Drive has arrived!

This year’s theme is: Watt’s Up? The Rally for Reach!

Some background info:

In 2009, CJAM changed its frequency to 99.1 FM

This altered the broadcasting range of our listening audience.
While we’ve gained new supporters, we’ve also lost the ability to broadcast in areas that are home to long time listeners.

A power increase from our present 500 watts to 1,000 watts, will allow us to reconnect with these listeners while expanding the reach of our broadcast areas.

Our fund-raising target for 2010 is $25,000.

This will help us begin the application process to the C.R.T.C. and Industry Canada while helping  to pay for the necessary technical expertise and equipment required for this power increase.

Why CJAM?

CJAM 99.1FM is the only not-for-profit campus-based community radio station in Windsor.
Through a dedicated body of volunteers, CJAM strives to provide live-to-air programming 24/7.

We bring a unique homegrown sound carrying hyper-local content that is essential for community mobilization.  We provide a venue for local musicians, artists and cultural programmers to be heard.

In short, CJAM engages community members, supports local initiatives, and gives voice to those in our community who are under-represented and/or marginalized by mainstream media.

It’s all about YOU-our listeners:

Our listeners connect with us on  a personal level!

Every day we receive a variety of calls from our listeners praising their favourite show, asking questions, and addressing reception concerns.

Due to our frequency change, one listener who no longer gets clear reception in his home, now gets in his truck every Sunday morning to hear his favourite show.

These stories of  listener dedication are endless!

At CJAM the listener experience is our main priority. We are constantly improving the quality of programming on the air, and this includes the quality of  broadcast reception  in your homes, offices, and yes even your trucks!

During this year’s Pledge Drive we want to hear from you!

From October 29th to November 5th,  listeners can call their favourite CJAM show, make a pledge, and tell their favourite CJAM story.

Why not make a pledge today and share your favourite CJAM tale with the rest of our listening audience?

While programmers may not get every story live and on air, we’ll do our best to accommodate every donor.

Donate today! We’d love to hear from you!

Thank-you for supporting CJAM99.1 FM!
