HAVE YOU CHECKED OUT 93.3 CFMU http://cfmu.msumcmaster.ca/
RAISE YOUR VOICE 2014
Okay, I’m not the most interesting man in the world. I’m probably not even the most interesting man in this room, and I’m the only one here. Yet one thing’s for sure – I work at the most interesting radio station in Hamilton. We are 93.3 CFMU FM – listener-supported, campus-based community radio.
CFMU broadcasts to the greater Hamilton area. Our programs are produced and hosted by volunteers from the community – by people like yourself. We address local issues, promote local and under-represented music, and feature unique voices. We give voice to those who need it.
Last year, we received our seventh Radio Station of the Year Award, grew our social media presence by 99%, started a blog (cfmu.wordpress.com), and had a physical presence at many events on campus and across the city. Our on-site Supercrawl broadcast was the most successful to date, and featured many high-profile guests. Most importantly, our campus profile has taken a leap forward and volunteer participation has expanded by over 30%. CFMU is more interesting and valuable than ever.
We are asking our fellow Hamiltonians to offer assistance in any way they are able: donations; promotions; sharing our campaign banner; spreading the word; or any other suggestions you may have in helping us reach our goal.
Additionally, we’d like you to consider pledging to this year’s drive and supporting our campaign. In order to save paper we are sending our request in digital form. If you choose to support us in 2014, click on the “Donate” button on this page to pay by PayPal, or email me – Jamie Tennant, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep radio interesting – support 93.3 CFMU.

plus more tba..
CFMU started out as McMaster Radio in 1963 and was run by the BSB (Board of Student Broadcasting.) The studios were in the basement of Wentworth House and as Bruce Beghamer ’67 recalls, ’We originally piped broadcasting to the residences. It was quite the adventure back then. We had a very small budget from the MSU, but we had huge heart and enthusiasm from our radio members.’
In January 1978, CFMU began to broadcast to Hamilton and the surrounding community on the FM band. Since then, we have been voice of the campus and the community, a breeding ground for new talent, and a vital medium for relating ideas, news and views. CFMU 93.3 is “Redefining Radio In Your Community.” We use that phrase because it re-enforces our broad relevance and reflects a revitalized commitment to our mandate. We are a public meeting place for many voiceless dimensions in our society – local cutting-edge artists and musicians, marginalized groups, multicultural families, and people with a keen social conscience. Our broadcasts stand independent of corporations, sponsors, advertisers, and political agendas. CFMU is comfortable with risky subjects that need attention – leadership in today’s issues and tomorrow’s art is our job. CFMU is listener-supported radio – supported by those who recognize that diversity and local programming are more crucial than ever. Yet we are more; we are also supported by those who utilize us and their community voice. Without the support of the community we serve, we will not be able to provide that community with a voice, truly the only open and independent voice in the city. A stronger CFMU is a stronger voice for all of us
