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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
How do I submit an album for CFCR's library?
We welcome properly labeled Albums/EPs in MP3 format (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!
The Music Department works exclusively via email (no phone calls, please!). Due to the sheer amount of submissions and tracking requests every week, we will only respond to artists that we add to our digital library!
I just heard a great song on the air but I don't know what it was. What do I do?
