If you didn’t know it, CHLY is listener-funded and the hosts are volunteers. Listener-funded means that since we aren’t taking major media conglomerate money, we aren’t beholden to supporting a consumer-capitalist narrative like all the other radio stations in this area are.

Every now and then, we ask you to pitch in some dollars so we can keep bringing you the independent content a well-informed public deserves.

We’ve made it easy to set up online, it only takes a few minutes.

We cannot live in a world informed by the corporate media only. We need independant, critical-thinking views and reporting through a financially-healthy community-based media like CHLY.

Please consider setting up a small monthly gift at chly.ca/donate


As a reward for your generous spirit, here is a photo of me relishing in the possibility of doing my show for another 9 years on CHLY 101.7FM

Associative Rap Functions

Our illustrious team of music-screeners worked around the clock to curate this special hour of break-beat, hip-hop, and downright funky jams to get down to. Just kidding. It’s only me and my kids. They do get down, but they get no say, and they sleep way more than I do.
