CJMP 90.1 FM is excited to announce the Summer 2014 Sustain Campaign Membership Drive! The CJMP Sustain Campaign will run for one month from July 15th through August 15th culminating with the “CJMP Masquerade Contest” at Powell River’s 2014 Blackberry Festival.
CJMP only needs $500 of guaranteed income to meet our monthly costs. By joining the Sustain Campaign, your monthly donation of $10 (or more) ensures that we can focus on more groundbreaking alternative media education and opportunities for our community rather than the basics.
What are “sustaining memberships”?
Sustaining members donate a chosen monthly amount which automatically comes from their bank (via Interac transactions), charged to their credit card, or coming from their PayPal or debit account automatically. You can become a “sustainer” of CJMP for as little as $10 a month. Check out our PayPal drop menu for other options.
Want to help for the Blackberry Fest?
The CJMP Masquerade Contest is being coordinated by long-time volunteer and host of the Latin Hour, Lola. (Monday’s at 2PM) You might know her as Dolores De La Torre, who volunteered to organize this years party! She hopes CJMP can bring more life and colour to our end of the street festival!
CJMP’s new Membership Outreach Coordinator, Tara Thurber is excited, “We’re looking forward to launching our “CJMPortal” box where people can have their community message recorded on the street and send it out to the listening world via CJMP. We’ll be looking for volunteers to help us run the band stage, operate the CJMP Photo Booth, help out with sound and of course help with the Masquerade! The more of us involved, the more fun this will all be so don’t hold back, join your community-radio community for this event!”
Contact Tara to contribute time, energy and ideas to CJMP! She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, 604-483-1712 or “Tara Thurber” on Facebook.

Powell River loves to Slam! Cousin Awd of 42 Fish hosts an evening of non-competitive poetry on the theme of Love, surrounded by images of rare earth magnets manipulated into beautiful geometric forms. Artist Ryan Kurylo will be at his Studio 56 opening to share his images and Joel Benson treats us to selections from his news play ‘Shrapnel’.
If you have attended any Powell River Slams previously, you know that when our local spoken word talent hits the stage they are louder then a bomb!
Friday, February 14th join us in evening of art and entertainment at the fabulous Studio 56 in Townsite to help raise funds for the Powell River Community Radio Society! The CJMP Photo Booth will be on hand as well as a cash bar, and entry is Pay What You Can. (suggested $5 minimum.)
