Kootenay Co-op Radio Membership & Funding Drive 2018
The Beat Diet, June 21st

Well, it’s another Funding Drive show. This year, not knowing too much what to expect, I kept the lead-up pretty low key (read: non-existent) so there wasn’t much noise about it here and on my social channels either leading up to, or after Kootenay Coop Radio’s 2018 Membership and Funding Drive, but we’ll probably amp things up again for this next year because I think we can do better ;)

Having said that, if you’re not already a member and would like to become a member of Kootenay Co-op Radio, there’s not time like the present.  Get some. Or if you just want to donate without becoming a member, that’s cool too. KCR is volunteer-run, community-powered radio and we live and die by our community support.

And if you’re feeling particularly masochistic, you can listen to me pitch for 2 hours on the benefits of community radio and becoming a member.

Funding Drive 2016, WHAT?!

cjsw_busad

Wow. I’m going to update the blog one of these days, I promise. I don’t know when exactly, but it’s on my list. Really…

Having said that, CJSW’s annual funding drive is upon us. It runs Friday October 21st through to the 28th. For one week every year we take a break from being the best radio station in town, and ask you — our listeners — to help us out. With Money.

All the money raised during our annual Funding Drive campaign goes towards our capital budget (like it always does), paying for everything from maintaining our fancy broadcast tower, to our CD players, our headphones, and all the other costs associated with running a radio station. Thanks to your generous donations in previous years, the station just launched a kick ass new website complete with tracklistings and podcasting of all shows and the other year, we increased the broadcast signal from 4,000 watts up to 20,000 watts, one of the highest powered community radio stations anywhere in Canada!

Pledging is easy. You can all the pledge line at 403-220-5000 between October 23rd through to the 30th, or make a donation on-line at fundingdrive.ca. Listen to CJSW 90.9 FM and check out www.cjsw.com everyday to find out about all the great swag we have to offer for pledges. Help us reach our goal of $200,000.

Funding Drive and the Fat Beat Diet

All my time with CJSW is volunteer work. I do it for the love, but pledging to my show is your opportunity to show your support – and it is greatly appreciated.

With the Fat Beat Diet kicking off the very successful Friday night lineup at CJSW, I’ve got more listeners than ever before. I’m looking forward to hearing from each and every one of you over the course of the Funding Drive show, which is this Friday, October 21st from 6-7pm MT.

Being on the first day of the Funding Drive is a bit stressful — funding drive is roughly the same time every year, but it still manages to surprise me.

Fat Beat Diet Incentives

As always, I’ll be putting together a few tasty mixes as added incentive to pledge on the show. These days, I pretty much only makes mixes for Funding Drive, so this is just about your only chance to get a mix from me (outside of the 50 odd mixes I make every other week of the year as part of the show, duh). These mixes are finely crafted, and I always put a lot of love into them. These exclusive mixes are never redistributed outside of the Funding Drive. You’ll never see these up on soundcloud a week after Funding Drive (like I’ve seen other programmers do) to ensure that all you fine pledgers don’t feel like chumps.

I’m doing the final QC on the mixes for this year, and they sound great. This year we’ve got digital distribution going, and there’s also a limited number of hard CD copies.

Support the Fat Beat Diet!

If you’re a regular downloader but don’t listen to the show live on air, please pledge by donating online on the cjsw site. Online donating is now open. If you can do this before the show this Friday, October 21st at 6pm MST, that will likely greatly increase the chances of getting what you’re after. Online donating has been streamlined this year, but to make sure supporting the this show, please enter the Fat Beat Diet as the show name as illustrated below.

Make me Proud!

Fat Beat Diet fans have yet to let me down, and I’m hoping this year will be no different. Thanks in advance for your support.

Funding Drive Mixes

Quick sneak peek at the mixes on offer tonight. Over 90 tracks across 3 discs, all in continuously mixed goodness. The New Jack Swag mix is a mixed back of hip hop, new jacks swing, breaks and house. Retro|Future Soul is a two disc mix of future soul music. Disc one is future soul, or what was future soul 20 years ago – over an hour of the best of acid jazz. Disc two is the best of the current crop of future sounds.

New Jack Swag is available as a digital download to everyone who pledges over $50 to the Fat Beat Diet.

Retro|Future Soul is available in a double CD format and digital download to everyone who pledges over $100.

Keep on eye on my twitter feed and I’ll try to put up the other incentives there.

Wow. A hear goes by crazy quick. It seems like just yesterday I was staying up late at night putting the finishing touches on some awesome mixes as Funding Drive incentives and now I’m doing it all over again. CJSW’s annual funding drive runs Friday October 23rd through to the 30th. For one week every year we take a break from being the best radio station in town, and ask you — our listeners — to help us out. With Money.

All the money raised during our annual Funding Drive campaign goes towards our capital budget (like it always does), paying for everything from maintaining our fancy broadcast tower, to our CD players, our headphones, and all the other costs associated with running a radio station. Thanks to your generous donations in previous years, the station just launched a kick ass new website complete with tracklistings and podcasting of all shows and last year increased the broadcast signal from 4,000 watts up to 20,000 watts, one of the highest powered community radio stations anywhere in Canada!

This year, we’re once again hoping to put your hard earned dollars at work on various aspects of the listening experience, including getting a new DJ mixer for the booth, which all us Friday night DJs would love (and so should you, because it would make Friday nights even more awesome!).

Pledging is easy. You can all the pledge line at 403-220-5000 between October 23rd through to the 30th, or make a donation on-line at fundingdrive.ca.

Disc 2 is the best future sounds of the last year. Don’t miss out on these, they’re amaze-balls.

Funding Drive Wrap Up

Another year, another ridiculously successful funding drive. Thanks, Calgary. While the show might not have done as well as it has in the past, the station blew by previous records and we managed to raise over $240,000 dollars. This money will be directly reinvested into the station and will help make your listening experience even more fantastic. Heartfelt thanks to all of those of you who donated to our 2014 Funding Drive.

ZOMFG! Funding Drive is TOMORROW!!

Big Funding Drive Thanks

barney-confetti

 

Well, you guys really came through this year. Once everything was counted and added up, The Fat Beat Diet ended up raising $3500. That’s fantastic! I’m humbled and overwhelmed by the support and can’t begin to tell you guys and gals how thankful I am for the success of the Funding Drive this year.

CJSW raised over $220,000 this year, making this the most successful funding drive not only in CJSW history, but in Canadian campus and community station history. You folks are amazing, take a bow.

Hopefully y’all have picked up your swag and downloaded your mixes. I hope you enjoy them!

Thanks to your generous donations last year, the station is just about to increase the 4,000 watts we currently broadcast up to around 20,000. This increase will extend our signal a little further than it currently travels, but most importantly it should help with the interference within the city limits. It would also make CJSW one of the highest powered community radio stations anywhere in Canada!

Funding Drive 2012: Thanks, All!

We Did It!Big heartfelt thank to everyone who pledge last week to CJSW and to the Fat Beat Diet. With your help, we managed to exceed our fundraising goal of $200,000. On the Fat Beat Diet, we managed to raise well over $1,300, which is fantastic for an early week evening show.

If you haven’t yet pledged or donated to the station, it’s not too late! Just call the office line at 403-220-3902 or donate on-line (instructions in the last post).

About Your Incentives…

I received a note from someone who didn’t get the download voucher for their Fat Beat Diet mixes when they picked up the rest of their CJSW swag at the CJSW offices. If you haven’t received your download voucher or don’t intend to pick one up at the station, please email me or drop me a line in the comments and we’ll get it sorted as soon as possible.

If you appreciate this and enjoy hearing non-rock (not that there’s anything against rock…) at all hours of the day, I hope you’ll support me and other shows like Funk Sinden and Mental Illness which showcase these genres of music outside of Friday nights. Not that the Friday night lineup isn’t amazing – because it is – But we need this music more often than one night a week.
