Why do you listen to the radio? To hear music?

To learn what’s happening in the world? To share ideas and events?

CJLY, also known as Kootenay Co-op Radio, is entering its 12th year on the air. That’s 1,440 months of local music, local news and local support, entirely supported by the love of its listeners.

Radio isn’t cheap. CJLY’s annual budget is over $130,000 dollars — money that goes to staff salaries, signal maintenance and day-to-day operations. To stay on the air, CJLY hosts membership drives to meet one third of its yearly budget.

More than ever, the “little station that could” needs you. Become a member during this year’s drive, May 14-21. Memberships start from as little as $4 per month.

New this spring, Forget Me Not monthly account withdrawals — so you can donate safely, easily and support CJLY all year long. Cheque, cash, VISA and Paypal are also payment options.

Your membership ensures CJLY continues providing non-profit radio: unbiased news, local and emerging artist promotion and cultural support in your community. As a member, you have a hand in promoting the ideas and art that are important to you.

Join Kootenay Co-op Radio at membership booths between May 14 and 21 in your community: Nelson, Kaslo, New Denver, Castlegar, Crawford Bay, Riondel, Winlaw, Crescent Valley and Slocan Park.

Receive a Friends of CJLY incentive card for discounts at sponsors who love community radio, or a limited edition made-to-order handmade bag, T-shirt or hoodie with your membership. You could even win the grand prize: passes to a number of summer music festivals.

There are many reasons to love radio from your community, about your community. Don’t forget Kootenay Co-op Radio. It’s radio from the heart.
