FUNdrive 2022: RETROWAVE RADIO
We’re riding the rails into FUNDRIVE 2022: RETROWAVE RADIO!
From October 14 to 21, 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.
Featuring a variety of retro synthwave inspiration and a funky new logo, FUNdrive 2022: RETROWAVE RADIO encompasses the ethos and culture of the station – collaborative, community-based, and colourful. Providing much needed financial and social support to the station, FUNdrive always works to put emphasis on the year-round grassroots, boots-on-the-ground efforts made by CKXU staff and volunteers alike.
✨ Where does your donation/pledge go? ✨
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!
FUNdrive 2019, 2020, and 2021 were dedicated to one fundraising goal: a new website with show archiving capacity! The Station and community alike worked hard to raise these much needed funds, and in Spring of 2022 the CKXU Crew began work with London Road Marketing to develop what is now our website! 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!
