October 25, 2015 – FUNDING DRIVE, Part I


CKUT_fundraising_2015
FUNDING DRIVE, Part I, just Clara-Swan and Missy in the studio!

Thanks very much to our kind listeners who called in to 514.907.9424 or navigated online to donate. The Free Kick will be back at you again for a second Funding Drive show on Sunday, November 1st. It’s one of the advantages of Sunday programming at CKUT, we get two turns at the bat!

Please call in or go to the CKUT website to help keep independent, volunteer-driven community radio on the air. Every little bit counts but donations of $25 or more gets you gifts and chances to win outstanding prizes. Last year one lucky Free Kick listener won a Suoni Per Il Popolo pass! This could be but one of your fates; maybe you’ll win a bike tune-up? Or something else? Who can tell?

At the very least you know that your support will keep us doing what we’re doing. That’s fulfilling two hours of the quality musical dietary needs of a generation starved for variety.

Kill ugly radio. Feed CKUT.
