CFCR FAQ


How do I arrange an interview on CFCR's airwaves?

We host most of our live on-air interviews on The Buzz, which airs live each weekday from 5-6pm. Ther are also interviews opportunities on some of our other programs, so please email our Program Director at pd@cfcr.ca for more information.

How do I submit an album for CFCR's library?

We welcome properly labeled MP3s (192 kbps quality preferred) for host airplay consideration! Please note any offensive language on any/all tracks. We ask that files/album folders are sent through a file sharing delivery (Dropbox, WeTransfer, Bandcamp, etc) and not as attachements via email. 

We also encourage artists, bands, and labels to sign up for the !Earshot Digitial Distribution System. This is a fantastic option to professionally service all Canadian Campus and Community Radio stations with your music. Please visit the link above to learn more about this option!

Please note: CFCR does not have a pre-programmed playlist, as we allow our hosts to program 100% of their shows. Charts are also based on actual air play on the station!

My band submitted an album for consideration, how do we find out if it was received and added to the CFCR library?

Our Music Department responds to inquiries exclusively via email at md@cfcr.ca.

I just heard a great song on the air but I don't know what it was. What do I do?

If you hear a tune on CFCR and need to know what it was, just send what info you have (date, time of day, etc) to our Music Director at md@cfcr.ca

We pay our gratitude to the First Nations and Métis people who have called this ancestral land home for generations, and whose histories, languages, and cultures continue to influence our community. On a foundation of reconciliation, recognition, and respect, CFCR is committed to reaffirming relationships with one another, and to establishing new ones.
