Details: Spring is the time of renewal and new beginnings, so if it’s your season to renew or start a membership with Kootenay Co-op Radio, mark your calendars for May 25 – 31. That’s the week for the spring membership drive at CJLY and we’re looking for fans of independent, locally-produced, high quality radio programming.

Twice yearly the station holds a membership drive that constitutes its primary fundraising effort. Other support comes from local business sponsorships. Yearly membership rates are as follows:

$25 Low-income

$45 Regular

$80 Family

$125 Organization

$600 Individual Lifetime

$800 Family Lifetime

The drive kicks off on a not-so-sleepy Sunday, May 25, with a 9:00 am broadcast from Crawford Bay on the East Shore. Then Sunday evening at 7:00 p.m. there will be special live programming and an open house at the station, 308A Hall Street. On Monday through Friday of drive week there will be chances to win free meals during the lunch hour block of programming and also a 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. discount hour whereby members can get wonderful goods and services at reduced prices! The spring membership drive concludes on Saturday, May 31 with Member Appreciation Day. The fun gets underway at 9:00 am at the station when families are invited to bring the kids to the station for waffles and to perform live on air during an extended “Kiddie Karousel” show. Until 5:00 pm on Saturday there will be an open house with live entertainment, food, prizes, and the opportunity to support independent media right here in the Kootenays. As an extra special treat, one lucky new or renewing member will win a super prize in a draw held in early June.
