Frequency Downshifting LIVE Wednesdays 3-5 pm on CJMP 90.1FM Powell River Community Radio
(Surf-Rock, Blues, Rockabilly, Rock & Roll and Beach Vibes)
Trevor-Travis just recently splashed-down upon our shores after a 3 year tour of Space. While on his expedition Trevor (aka Capita Pooley) found the time to record a weekly radio program, “The Space Cadets” which aired Tuesday afternoons on CHLY 101.7fm Radio Malaspina in Nanaimo. Trevor-Travis moved to Tofino in 2005 to become a surfer, but it turns out he was not very good in the water and his true passion resided in the Surf-Rock sound. After recently retiring from “The Space Cadet” program he has returned to EARTH and settled into Powell River in search of the “Endless Summer”.
Community Engagement is a both a big part of Powell River Community Radio Society’s radio license, and also very much in line with our purposes and values. We invite community groups, whether or not incorporated, whose mandate is to provide services or to organize events for the benefit of the community, and which does not divide profits among shareholders or other interested parties to request an “evergreen” Public Service Announcements (PSAs), produced free of charge.
“Evergreen PSAs” are non-changing and not for specific events, but for the organization, generally (i.e. there is no start or end date when the PSA must be removed). Only 1 free PSA (15 or 30 seconds long) may be produced by CJMP. Note that there are accompanying fees only if changes are ever required to the evergreen PSA. You can always ask that a PSA be removed, free of charge.
“But I just want to advertise an even my group is holding!” Great! Then visit our event submission page (yes, that is free too).
Fill in the form here to get the process started toward your FREE 15 second or 30 second evergreen Public Service Announcement (PSA) to promote your organization. Want US to write your “evergreen” PSA script? Sure! Just email email@example.com
Special thanks this month go out to Powell River’s First Credit Union and Insurance. Since becoming a station sponsor First Credit Union has helped CJMP raise almost $1500 for our Top the Tower Campaign.
CJMP was blown away by First Credit Union and Insurance generous spirit. Thank you First Credit Union for all you do from raising funds for us at your Jeans Day, donating proceeds from concession sales from this year’s Theatre Under the Stars to presenting us with a generously big cheque.
Special thanks also to volunteers from Powell River Women’s Punk Rock Choir who stomped out in force to help out at Theatre Under the Stars as well as Powell River Regional District manager of emergency services Ryan Thoms who helped us spread the word about CJMP’s emergency broadcast system.
Things got sudsy on Sunday, August 14, as Powell River Fire Rescue generously threw their efforts into a car wash for CJMP’s Top the Tower Campaign.
Working tirelessly in between calls, the firefighters washed cars at a fast and furious pace while still taking time to smile and share a splashy laugh or two.
Thanks to Powell River Fire Rescue over $450 was raised towards CJMP’s Top the Tower Campaign. Special thanks to CJMP sponsors First Credit Union & Insurance for the use of their Joyce Avenue parking lot and their tent as well—the shade was much appreciated on such a blessedly hot day.
Special thanks to all the firefighters, volunteers and CJMP people who made the day such a fun success.
CJMP is proud to have been part of this year’s Blackberry Street Party, Marine Avenue’s biggest festival. With music, food, dancing and more, the festival drew in locals and tourists to celebrate together and showcase Powell River’s culture, arts, businesses and non-profits. CJMP set up their live radio station at the south end of the festival, channeling the airwaves coming live from the studio and playing them out onto the street. Many thanks to Bad Karen (Every Day is Like Sunday), DJ Kamandi (Cowbell Radio), and DJ TripleDub (Pow!Town Get Down) for their awesome shows which we got to blast onto the street, as well as a big thank-you to everyone who helped set up, staff the booth and take down. Good times were had by all!
