On Saturday, May 21 community radio fans flocked to Little Hut Curry, to enjoy a delicious four-course meal AND support CJMP 90.1 FM.
Thanks the generosity of restauranteurs Mohinder Singh and Janmeet Kaur, an additional $375 was raised for CJMP 90.1 FM — bringing us closer to our “Top the Tower” goal.

Thank you again Mohinder, Janmeet and the Little Hut Curry team. Keep calm and curry on!
The Powell River Community Radio Society (PRCRS, operating CJMP 90.1 FM) are very happy to announce that as part of Powell River Community Forest Ltd (PRCF) recommendations for additional 2015 grants from the Community Forest Reserve Fund, a motion was passed on September 23, 2015 by the PRCF board of directors recommending that CJMP Powell River Community Radio be awarded $5,750 as a partial contribution towards purchase of new equipment and relocation of a new transmitter to ensure coverage for entire community.
This was the final piece of money that was requested for the Signal Strength project, and with this grant, our “Signal Boost” or “Tower Relocation” fund now has enough money
to purchase all the required equipment. The only thing left to account for is the additional $10,000 that’s estimated to come from a Telus tower rental agreement. They’ve finished the Site Analysis Study – we now have to wait for Rogers to finish one of their installs. The dream of having CJMP more easily available to the entire community is becoming a reality!

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!”
