During our 2010 "Living Stereo" FM-Phasis funding drive, Wednesday Afternoon Buzz host Alison Whelan had the great idea to have local musicians write songs especially for donors to her program. And so was born "FM-Era." The unveiling of these songs will take place at Caffe Sola on Sunday, November 7th.
Big congratulations go out to the winners of the door prize draws at our Craftacular last weekend! The door prizes included a Yoga Downtown 5-class pass, a bouquet of flowers from Flowers by Fred and a photo shoot package from Relish Photography.
The whirlwind that was FM-Phasis almost seems like a distant memory now, as we look towards future fundraisers and next year's funding drive. However, one big piece of unfinished business remained until the end of October: the drawing for our great Grand Prizes.
If you attended the first ever CFCR Community Radio Craftacular, you would have seen some great, local, handmade crafts. You may also have tried some delicious perogies from Baba's, entered your name in a door prize and purchased a 50/50 ticket.
