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
It’s another week of Sweet and Sour Variety Hour-ness. Who knows where we’ll go, but at least you know it won’t suck*. At the end, I give pooing advice?!! HA!! What?? What even is this world anymore idk.
This week on the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour, lots of great music and an article about Nanaimo’s derelict centerpiece buildings from The Discourse.
This amazing publication is vying for a permanent place in the Nanaimo media landscape, and all they need is a show of hands. Click here to enter your email address and you will be counted as a voice in favour of community-driven journalism in Nanaimo.
Another cool opportunity is to secure a place for CHLY as a founding partner for this initiative! The Discourse is offering a place in their publication for CHLY and The Radio Malaspina Society (the non-profit that runs the station). All we need to do is raise some cash. Go to chly.ca/thediscourse if you’d like to contribute.
