CiTR Fundrive 2011

This week is CiTR Radio’s annual fund raising campaign. Last year was a huge success! Your donations helped us smash my last year’s goal of $300 by raising $1,800 towards the station goal of $30,000. With your help, Trancendance was the second highest contributing show.

There are two significant new initiatives underway at CiTR right now, with a third on the horizon. These are the kinds of things your donation may help fund:

CiTR has one of the most respected music libraries in Canada, especially catering to underground, indie and Canadian artists. We have extensive CD and vinyl collections, and we are currently digitizing those into a massive digital library that will greatly improve access and searchability for our on-air DJs and volunteer members.

CiTR just launched a new DJ training program where students can sign up for a free month-long course on how to DJ dance and hip-hop music. The initial launch was extremely well received with over 150 people signing up within the first 2 hours.

In 2012 UBC will break ground on a new Student Union Building which will be the new home of CiTR starting in 2014. This is very exciting for CiTR members and, while UBC will be paying for the construction and basic furnishings, we will be looking to save some money to help improve our new home.

Trancendance first aired in 2001, which means the show is now celebrating its 10 year anniversary.

In the past year our Facebook fan page has grown from 1300 members to 3919 members, from all over the world.

We feature the music-only version of our best shows on our SoundCloud page were they often receive over 1000 plays.

SO….

It would really mean a lot to us and to CiTR if you could help out with a donation. The powers at be seem to have increased our goal to $1,800 after last year’s massive success, but we would be extremely grateful for any amount that you are able to contribute. We have pledged $60 towards the goal for our show, which will contribute to the station’s overall goal of $35,000.

PLEASE…

Donate by PHONE by calling (604) 822-8648 and telling the person who takes your call that it is for the show Trancendance.

OR…

Donate by INTERNET

Thank you so much!

Oldskool Warehouse Rave

This week was a blast! It’s Fundrive week at CiTR which is when we ask our listeners to donate and help support the station. Caddyshack and I scoured our vinyl collection for the oldest, most classic warehouse rave tunes that we could bust out for our fundraising show. CiTR’s music director, Luke Meat, hung around for the show, which was a blast since he shares a passion for oldskool rave tracks (which I only found out recently!)

Thanks to everyone who has donated, and if you haven’t already, please consider making a small donation. You can call (604) 822-8648 and tell the person who takes your call that you are donating to Trancendance or donate online.

Please support Trancendance with a Donation

Dear Listeners,

Thank you so much for listening to our show! This is so much fun, I don’t ever want to stop!

Trancendance is broadcast on CiTR 101.9fm – the University of British Columbia campus radio station which is largely run by volunteers (including me). CiTR makes the Trancendance podcast possible, however they rely on donations from listeners like you. Once a year, we ask for your help – even if it’s just a few dollars.

Trancendance Fun Facts

I was on-air at CiTR for the first time in 1994 (16 years ago) as a groupie and soon-after as a co-host for “Digital Alarm Chronometer” which was an all electronic show (mainly techno) broadcasting from roughly 10-11:30 every Wednesday morning. (Yes – it was an odd time of day for a hard techno show :) The show was hosted by dj Vader with co-host Sidearm.

Trancendance first aired in 2001, which means the show is now 9 years old, and going stronger than ever! My real-life brother, dj Caddyshack, joined the show as a co-host in 2002 after developing an oddly similar taste for underground dance music and DJing.

In 2006 CiTR began to podcast the shows it broadcasts, including Trancendance. Since then, there are over 140 episodes of Trancendance available for free download via iTunes.

This year we started a Facebook Fanpage that now has 1300 members, we launched the newly redesigned Trancendance.net website which receives over 1500 visits per month, and we now have a selection of our best podcasts available on Soundcloud.com which have received 5,000 listens and 2,700 downloads since August.

This year also marked the year that Caddyshack and I “went digital”. Prior to this year we used all vinyl records. Now we use Serato hardware and software that allows us to use special time-coded vinyl records to play and control MP3s from our laptops, while still maintaining the feel of DJing with vinyl records.

SO….

It would really mean a lot to me and to CiTR if you could help out with a donation.

Funding Drive – Part 1

This week’s show is part one of two annual funding drive shows to help support CiTR. CiTR is a campus radio station run by voulanteer DJs and supported by the students at UBC and our listeners. We feature diverse programming that you just don’t hear on commercial radio stations and the station needs your support to help it run smoothly. Funds go to things like bigger better podcasting servers and studio equipment. The station is even talking about investing in Serato which would let me bring tons of new music to the show in MP3 format and mix it like vinyl. Please take a few minutes to donate to CiTR. If you donate $30 or more I will offer up a mix CD as a prize (complete with cover art!). Click here to Donate to CiTR.
