FUNDRIVE 2023: Events Guide

From October 13 to 20, CKXU 88.3 FM is pleased to host FUNdrive 2022: Retrowave Radio! 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. 

You can also get involved with FUNdrive 2023: Bubblegum Broadcast and support CKXU by participating in our specialty FUNdrive events! Browse through the below guide for full details.
