Hi CJMP Community Radio Volunteers, Listeners, and Supporters,
I am raising money for the Powell River S.P.C.A. at the Locked In for Love event Saturday, June 23rd and C.J.M.P. is going to help me do it!!
If you’ve heard my show, you know what a huge lover of all animals I am.
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals works very hard to protect and care for all our furry friends in need of help. This is by far my most loved and respected organization.
By June 23rd, I am hoping to raise 1000 dollars for this wonderful society and an equally awesome cause.
Anything that you can contribute, no matter how small, would be greatly appreciated by me, the SPCA, and all the wonderful animals in their care.
Here is the link to my S.P.C.A. profile and donation page.
Thanks to all, sincerely Bob Coulter, A.K.A.Nabob , Cheers

As many have you have heard – or better put – not been able to hear, our aging transmitter had been showing the croak in its voice for the last two weeks, until it uttered its last words last week. The timing couldn’t have been much worse, as we were in the final stages of testing our new antenna on Gallagher Hill.
Even though we’re close, ooh so close, to finally getting a better signal, all you hear now is the silence of a turned off transmitter. It’s been a couple years work to get this far, so we’re hoping you stick with us for just a while longer.
The antenna has been mounted on Gallagher Hill. We’ve received official approval. And finally, a new transmitter is on its way. We are planning a celebration for this event whenever it happens. Stay tuned to Facebook and the website for updates – and when it does happen, let us know if it’s made a difference in your listening locations.
We hoped we’d beat the BC Ferries schedule with the new ferry running between Comox and Powell River, but it looks like they might just win that race by a hair.
Your patience and unending support is appreciated.
CJMP will be at the Newcomers Social at Dwight Hall tomorrow night (Tuesday May 16) from 6-9pm, so make a point of dropping by and seeing us. Ask about our new shows and our survival plans for the future. You can always volunteer to take a more active role in that lifeline support. We have had some amazing staff and continue to rely on the work of dedicated volunteers, especially in times like the year ahead of us, when we don’t have a grant to pay staff.
CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS
Because of the immense support we’ve received from the community (Cranberry Hall, Regional District, Community Forest), donations from the Top The Tower campaign, significant reductions in Telus fees, reduced installation charges from TriLinks communications, we have enough in our Tower Fund to cover the equipment and installation, as well as monthly tower rental charges for the next year.
Unfortunately the failed transmitter was not part of our budget. We have enough to pay for it by combining funds from our Contingency and Sponsorship Funds, but if you’d like to help out, we’d certainly accept donations or sustaining memberships with grateful thanks.
