FunDrive 2015

February 27, 2015 by

It’s that time of year again: FunDrive at CiTR Radio!

You can donate here: You can also call in to pledge: 604-822-8648. Tell ’em Duncan’s Donuts sent you.

This year’s theme is “Let’s get digital.” The plan is to develop a new (much needed) website, one that will bring together Discorder magazine and CiTR under one internet roof at last. Additionally, we’ll be digitizing our archive of audio reels, which have sat mouldering in Studio B since the ’80s. Who knows what gems we’ll find in there? We recently did the same for DiSCORDER magazine. Every issue of DiSCORDER is now available for download from the UBC Library. How great is that!?

  • ANY AMOUNT will be graciously accepted. If you donate even a measly dollar to my show, I will happily send you a link to a mixtape I made for this year’s FunDrive.
  • If you can spare $60, you’ll get a limited edition, hand-drawn (by me) “I dream of DONUTS” T-shirt (limited to 25 and only available in Peach XL).
  • And if you donate $250, I’ll DJ for you for three hours. This could be a wedding, a bat mitzvah, a product launch, a graduation party, a funeral, WHATEVER. Me and my musical stylings are YOURS for three hours.
  • In addition to these, CiTR is offering a bunch of great swag, including toques, a cassette (called S.U.B. Pop) of live, broadcasted performances, scarves and more. Read all about the FunDrive here.

It’s a big time for CiTR. After many delays, we’re moving to our new station in April. As always, the station is a big part of my life. I’ve served on the board for a number of years and Duncan’s Donuts is entering its ninth (!) year. I’d really appreciate it if you saw fit to support the station again this year.

Hope to see you at the FunDrive Finale at Pat’s Pub on March 6th.
Your pal,
