Pledges help raise over $200,000 for CJSW

Carrie and Stefan man the phones during funding drive.

 CJSW 90.9fm's annual funding drive took place all last week.  The staff and management of the station as well as the entire CalgarySoca team would lilke to thank everyone that pledged this year. On Wednesday October 24th 2012 from 6-7pm listeners helped raise close to $1000 to help keep the station running.  This year's station goal was $200,000 for the week long fund raising efforts.  The final tally for all the shows combined being an estimated $211,000 raised!

The money annually goes towards the licensing, maintenance and equipment needed for the nearly 200 volunteers, programmers, and staff to create the radio magic that is CJSW.   This year's funding drive efforts will also go towards an even more powerful transmitter to reach an even greater portion of the province.  (Read more about the purpose of this year's funding drive, HERE)

Thank you again for all your efforts, especially during the CARNIVAL MIX to show your Soca support.

2hr Carnival Mix - CJSW ft. Supa Soca 18. - Oct.03.2012

With Miami Carnival happening this weekend, we realized there was an influx of hot Groovy releases.  Its no coincidence that DJ Crown Prince's latest 'Supa Soca' release also came out this week as most of the heat was actually featured on it.  The series, now at number 18, features some of the most creative Soca remixes and no shortage of exclusive tracks.  This year's mix also features Superstar Soca DJs, Dr. Jay, Jester and returning voice DJ Barrie Hype.

We had a chance to play an extended show this week, so we featured a large portion of this stellar project and even had a chance to talk to Barrie in Miami about the upcoming Carnival.  Needless to say we had a time in the studio.  Enjoy!
