CJNU will soon be a fully licensed radio station with a new frequency, and we’re making our biggest investment ever to boost our power and improve service to our listeners. A number of you have given generous donations to help us meet the $40,000 cost that’s involved, even though we can’t issue tax receipts.
To encourage others to do the same, here’s an offer you should not refuse. Every Wednesday we make a draw from those who donate to the CJNU Transmitter Fund. The weekly winner will receive tickets valued at more than $60.00 each for the Tuesday, June 25 concert at the Pantages Playhouse by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.
You can make a donation, using a credit card, by calling our phone volunteers during regular hours at (204) 942-2568, or by mailing a cheque, payable to CJNU, to Box 2282, Station Main, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 4A6. But remember, we're not a registered charity and cannot issue tax receipts.
Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative's 2013 Annual General Meeting was held on May 16. More than 100 members attended the meeting to hear about CJNU's progress towards becoming a fully licensed, full-time permanent broadcaster beginning this fall and to discuss other issues. One item of business that has been on the AGM agenda for the past three years is the presentation of a Builder's Award.
This year's award was presented to Roy Maguire (left)) by Harry Taylor. Although Roy doesn't host programs and so may not be well known to CJNU listeners, he has played a key role in the success of CJNU. He's our 'go to' guy for all things technical. He often climbs to great heights in the pursuit of his work - as in climbing the CJNU transmitter tower which is located on top of one of Winnipeg's tallest buildings. Prior to his work with CJNU, Roy had a career in the technical side of broadcasting stretching all the way back to CKRC in the 1950s.
Our host sponsor for May is The Manitoba Lung Association, whose vision is to be the recognized leader, voice and primary resource in lung health to enable all people to breathe with ease. Our on-air studio for the month is located in their offices at 629 McDermot Avenue.
