Live for FunDrive 2015 – September 23 & 30

Wab-Kinew-HiRes3

Hey there ATM listeners – we wanted to let you know about our extra large shows on September 23 and 30 for CJSR’s FunDrive.

We love making this show for you, and we need your support to keep doing it. FunDrive is your chance to dial or click to donate and keep CJSR in the business of making great community radio.

Listen in for our hour-long show each week: On September 23, we’ll be asking what art can tell us about the past. Author, rapper and broadcaster Wab Kinew will be speaking about his new memoir The Reason You Walk. And University of Saskatchewan Professor Yin Liu will join us to talk about the surprising origins of the blank spaces between our words.

Then on September 30: The Future! We’ll tiptoe out at night for Nuit Blanche, try to figure out why we love spoilers so much, and chat with U of A Students Union President Navneet Khinda about the future of the arts on campus.

Donors get sweet CJSR swag like a hoodie with this year’s spooky design by Edmonton artist Jill Stanton and a badass Tyvek wallet. And you’ll be entered to win special prizes like a gift pack from Variant Edition comics in Edmonton, and special access to tickets for the Secret Streetcar Shows.

Listen in September 23 and 30 at 5 PM on CJSR 88.5 FM in Edmonton. And dial 780-492-2577 or click cjsr.com to donate. And thanks.
