IT’S FUNDING DRIVE TIME AGAIN. And you know what that means.
It’s the time of year when we ask Venus listeners to make a pledge to CKUT 90.3 FM to keep us afloat for another year.
Because CKUT is noncommerical, independent, volunteer-run and listener-driven.
Because we play what we want. Because we play what YOU want.
Because we make space for women, queers, sisters, girlfriends, ladies, chicks, lesbros, les filles, girls, wymyn, femmes, killjoys, sluts, ice queens, bitches, bitchez, butches and butchies, crones, witches, and very many other people you will never hear on mainstream radio, or anywhere else.
Because we’re committed to the local, the underground, the weird, the experimental, the utterly unmarketable.
Because we love what we do, and we want to keep doing it.
If you need further convincing, CKUT is happy to give you more reasons to open your heart and your wallet.
On October 31st we’re bringing you THEE 7TH (???) ANNUAL VENUS RADIO RADIOKE SUPERJAM, featuring local musicians, CKUT staff, and Venus friends and family singing their wee Hearts out on Air for your Mony Mony. We do this every year and it’s always a blast.
Here’s a little taste of some Radiokes past to whet your whistle:
As a little cherry on top, we are offering, as usual, a LIMITED EDITION VENUS TSHIRT to everyone who pledges $60 or more to our show.
These shirts were designed and hand-tie-dyed by NOMNRYN of the Venus Collective, and printed by real local organic silkscreen artisans. WHAT ELSE DO WE HAVE TO SAY.
Oh yeah, that we’re TOTAL MERCH MANIACS, and donors of $100 or more will get a special EXTREEEMELY LIMITED EDITION Venus prize. What is it? You’ll have to donate to find out.
Convinced? Click here to make a pledge to Venus and CKUT 90.3 FM. You can pledge any time, but do it on or before October 31st to request a song for Radioke!
