At Gulf Island Radio, we would like to update you on our progress in getting FM Radio back on the air on Salt Spring Island.
We are nearing completion of the complex process of getting our transmission sites finalized and are aiming to get our CRTC application in by Sept. 1. In the meantime, we have been broadcasting a live, online morning show from 7-9am, Mon-Fri, hosted by Scott Merrick. We are planning to add other online content, such as a classical music show and a Brit-rock show, over the coming months.
We are also reaching out to a group of movers and shakers on Salt Spring to help us out.
But we also need your help
It costs us more than $4,000 per year to keep our studio running and we’ll need funds to complete our engineering studies for the CRTC. Would you be prepared to make a monthly subscription to help keep us online and on track?
What are the minimums?
For the price of two cups of coffee a month – or $5 --100 supporters could keep us funded for a year. We are launching a subscription program and we’d like your help. There are three levels of support, in case you’d like to give more.
Programme Host: $5/month for 12 months
Studio Producer: $10-a-month for 12 months
Station Manager: $20-a-month for 12 months
