Got Used Audio Gear?
August 31, 2015 by PCR

Peach City Radio CFUZ is gearing up for the 4th annual Okanagan Vinyl Festival.

On Tuesday September 8 CFUZ will hold an audio equipment donation drive at the SOECparking lot from 4:00 to 6:00pm. Donations of audio equipment in working condition will be accepted. Turntables, speakers, and all stereo components will be tested by the CFUZ volunteers and readied for sale at the 4th Annual Okanagan Vinyl Festival later in the month. All proceeds from donated audio gear will help Peach City Radio raise the funds needed to set up a community use radio studio in Penticton.

In previous years Peach City Radio has also asked for donations of vinyl records. The response has been overwhelming, with thousands of LPs donated. CFUZ is always interested in accepting donations of vinyl and other music media, but due to storage limitations, only donations of good quality rock & roll and jazz can be accepted at this time. For more info about the audio equipment donation drive please email info@peachcityradio.org or call 250-488-9551. A limited pickup service will be offered to those who canít make the September 8th drop-off event.

The 4th Annual Okanagan Vinyl Fest will take place on Sunday September 20th. The event has been so successful that it is making the move to a larger space - the Penticton Seniors' Drop-in Centre at 2965 South Main Street. With over 40 vendor tables onsite, vinyl collectors and music lovers can purchase a wide selection of albums from other collectors based in BC and Alberta. Follow the link below for more information about the 2015 Okanagan Vinyl Fest.

Calling Local Musicians: 1 Minute - The Unloggable Project
August 12, 2015 by PCR

The NCRA is launching a campaign called 1 Minute - The Unloggable Project!

The campaign is to highlight Canadian artists, and bands who produce songs which are less than a minute long, which currently are not considered in CRTC content (including CanCon). It was identified through our fellow Campus/Community radio stations and research that this was important to address to the CRTC, as much creative content that is generated and played by stations does not count or is considered 'unloggable'.

As a part of the project, the NCRA is producing an album made entirely of songs 60 seconds or less! The whole thing will be 50-60 songs, at 60 seconds or less, with artists from all genres, from across the country!

Funding is available to pay artists a small amount for their contribution to this project. If you are an artist, or know an artist who has original content less than 1 minute in length and would like to contribute, please fill in the survey found at the link below. Remember to state that you are affiliated with Peach City Radio (CFUZ) in Penticton when you register! Contributing and selected artists may be eligible to receive as much as $200 for their submission.

The deadline for the first submission round is August 30, 2015.

New Syndicated Shows Enter Schedule
August 2, 2015 by PCR

On Monday, August 3, regular listeners of Peach City Radio may notice a slight change in our online streaming schedule. Your Programming Committee has worked hard over the past months to securing some new syndicated content from our fellow NCRA stations and elsewhere, to add to our online stream.

Starting this week, we'll be airing 7 new (to CFUZ) shows during the course of the week, including Alternative Radio, True North, WINGS, Terra Informa, City Slang, !earshot20 and The Mixed Tape. These shows represent a diversity of styles and content found throughout the collective of NCRA member stations, and will augment the already amazing shows that are produced at Peach City Radio. Find out more about each of these shows, and our own shows, by perusing the online streaming schedule and clicking on any of the shows on that page. Pages for each show let you know how to contact the hosts/producers for feedback.

Our hope is that these syndicated shows, along with our very own CFUZ program library, will inspire our listeners to come up with ideas of their own for interesting, informative and entertaining shows to be broadcast on Peach City Radio. If you'd like to get involved, if you have an idea for your own show, or you know of a show you'd like to hear on Peach City Radio, drop us a line to prog @ peachcityradio.org.
