CKXU 88.3 FM PRESENTS FUNdrive 2023: Bubblegum Broadcast

From October 13 to 20, CKXU 88.3 FM is pleased to host FUNdrive 2023: Bubblegum Broadcast! This annual fundraiser provides much needed support to the station, and puts emphasis on the grassroots, boots-on-the-ground efforts made by CKXU staff and volunteers alike to procure donations from the community-at-large. 

This year, the fundraiser draws inspiration from 90s bubblegum wrappers, quirky gum slogans, diverse musical flavours, and the non-stop “Ken-ergy” needed to keep the station moving forward and growing! FUNdrive 2023: BUBBLEGUM BROADCAST truly encompasses the ethos and culture of the station – collaborative, community-based, and colourful. 

$250 - Double Bubble Buds

We invite the community to celebrate another year of FUNdrive with the CKXU Crew as we work to raise $20,000 to overhaul our Music Library space to increase accessibility, create clear organization structures for all physical CDs, vinyl, and tapes, and to increase our digital server space for the Digital Music Library! With the increase in digital music releases and our hope to turn the Music Library into a Living Archive, this is a much needed step for CKXU to continue to best support local and emerging musicians and provide volunteers with easily accessible and navigable musical resources!

Donations from FUNdrive 2019, 2020, and 2021 were dedicated to one fundraising goal: a new website with show archiving capacity! This goal was officially realized in early 2023. Featuring interactive and easily navigable content, this website was developed with the campus and community in mind. Browse through the new format and let us know what you think!
