infrastructure requires funding

Dear Radio Free School listeners and supporters,

We have come to the point (February) in the annual cycle of nature when, as Randy's theory goes, people get their hair cut; but that's not why we are writing.

It is time for the annual fund-raiser at the mighty CFMU 93.3 fm in hard working Hamilton Ontario.

CFMU is one of those wonderful community places where alternative voices can be found, and where Radio Free School has been making our volunteer contribution for the past six years.

There are not many places where you will hear children taking an active role in creating media, so Radio Free School is proud to be a part of the effort to allow children to share their views, and for listeners to explore the ideas that form the basis of the show's theme: unschooling (or home-schooling, life-learning, self-design, etc.) CFMU makes it possible for listeners (both on airwaves and over the internet) to engage with alternative ideas (and music).

Community Radio relies on volunteers to produce the shows, and they also rely on listeners to take an active role in supporting the station. So once a year we come to you to request support in the form of a donation towards CFMU's goal of $21,000 dollars. So please give what you can (suggested donations $20)

All the money pledges goes to operating the station and buying equipment which then benefits the volunteers at the station.

When you make your pledge, please include "Radio Free School" in the subject line so the station bean counters know we have support out there in the community!

Thank you for supporting community campus radio and our show Radio Free School.

Thanks, from Beatrice, Randy, Madeleine, Evelyna and Bronwyn!
