Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative
Not for Profit Community Service Radio
A BIG thank you to the 180 people who called in with pledges on our first ever Pledge Drive. Welcome to the 37 new members who became part of our CJNU Cooperative, and, we should mention the 12 others who endorsed "The Little Station That Could" with their renewals. Thanks to all those who phoned with their good wishes for the future and their praise for what our volunteer staff does each and every day to bring you the memories of your life. More than 60 CJNU volunteers were involved in the four day weekend. Oh, we should also mention we raised more than $12,400!
With our new office and broadcast studio on the 13th floor of the Richardson Building, we thank Rick Frost and the staff of The Winnipeg Foundation for their incredible support in making it all happen. More than ever, CJNU will be able to fulfill its mandate as YOUR nonprofit community radio station. We will still be doing monthly broadcasts from locations around the city. This month, our Host Sponsor is Winnipeg Harvest.
You can now become a Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative member - or renew your membership - by submitting your application and paying the membership fee online using either PayPal or your credit card. It takes just a couple of minutes. Most people will find this the most convenient way to become a new member or to renew their existing membership, but if you prefer you can still download, print, and mail a PDF application form.

The latest fish recipe by Jim & Barbra Pappas, in cooperation with the Gimli Fish Market, is for Steelhead Trout with Broccoli Olives and Garlic. The recipe is clear concise, and easy to follow. If you'd like to try making it yourself, click here to view the detailed recipe.
