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 events@cjmp.ca

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!
