If you tuned in to the Afternoon Buzz today, you might have heard The Jay of Spades announce the slogan for our upcoming funding drive, FM-Phasis: "Living Stereo." We're very excited about the funding drive, which runs September 18 - October 1. It's the time of year that we ask you, our faithful listeners and supporters, to give back to the station with your donations. We depend on the money raised during FM-Phasis to keep the station afloat.
As usual, we've got a great design to go along with the slogan. This year, the design was made by Saskatoon ex-pat Scott Kowalchuk. Scott is now living in Calgary, making a name for himself by creating some amazing comic art. He was gracious enough to lend his time and talent to CFCR to create the image that you'll see all over the city in a few weeks, on posters, t-shirts, magnets, etc, etc.
Another big part of FM-Phasis is our music festival, FM-Phasis Fest. We've been talking a lot about the great bands coming to town, so make sure to mark the dates off in your calendar:
