Blues and Rhythm Show 310 on 93.3 CFMU (Hamilton, Ontario)

Swear to Tell the Truth for Tuesday, March 9, 2021 (10:00 to 12:00 noon) – 2021 Findraising Edition

It can’t be avoided. This is CFMU’s Fundraising week. A campus community station must raise funds from its supporters to operate but while we welcome year-round support we campaign for donations just once a year. We accept any amount large or small but a $30.00 pledge gets you a Friends of CFMU card entitling you to discounts and preferences at select local businesses. 10% of every donation will be directed to local food banks. The Blues & Rhythm Show‘s dedicated fundraising program features Blues, R&B, Gospel\, Soul and Country, including a few rare tracks. In case you are afraid that a great portion of the show will be devoted to harassing you to donate we can tell you that the program includes 31 different selections, more than the average number over the past year.

After being away from the air we followed the instruction from the radio station to begin preparing radio shows from home, if possible. It’s a steep learning curve for the technically unsavvy. We managed to undermike our voice and made a few other mistakes along the way to our first home broadcast file.

Along the way, we played some pretty interesting music, however–R&B, Blues, Hokum Blues, Western Swing, Old Time, Gospel and Soul.
