Our annual Funding Drive has officially come to an end.

This year we raised... drumrolls please!

$8,270, with more funds to come!

Here's a word from Francella, our Station Manager: 

"I'm so thrilled that we were able to not only reach our goal, but hit $8,000 and raise a little bit more money than last year. CJLO has proven time and time again that we can overcome difficult and unexpected circumstances with flair and enthusiasm. I have to thank the volunteers who worked so tirelessly during our Funding Drive and our many supporters who believe in our mandate."

Looking to Donate to this Year’s Funding Drive? Here’s a List of Incentives!

Life can be categorized by its cyclical nature, as yearly trends come back to remind us the Earth has rotated around the sun one more time. These cycles are inevitable, and can be counted on more than your truest of friends. The return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, the purveying joy of Christmas, tax season. Or, CJLO’s annual Funding Drive.

Each year, the station bands together to raise money. Our goal? To continue serving as a pillar of arts and culture in Montreal and the surrounding area, offering listeners dozens of curated radio programs to tune into, discovering new tracks and welcoming voices along the way.

Fantasia Week One: A Weekly Recap of The Genre Film Festival

Once again, this year I am taking part in the virtual portion of the Fantasia Film Festival due to the circumstances. However, I am happy to see the theatrical component of the festival come back this year because there is nothing like a Fantasia audience for a film premiere. Quite honestly it is the only way to truly appreciate the festival in a room of other genre film lovers while keeping everyone safe under the current guidelines. In my theatrical experience the film that I got to see seemed lost amongst the audience I saw it with, and I ponder how it played out among the Fantasia audience.
