An appeal to support CKLN 88.1FM FundFEST 2010

Hello friends and fans of In My Room on CKLN 88.1FM!

CKLN 88.1FM has launched its yearly fund raising drive: FundFEST 2010 from November 19 – 28th.


CKLN is a listener-supported station that relies on donations for about 1/3 of its operating budget. This money is vital to make necessary improvements to the station and its equipment. This year CKLN hopes to raise a grand total of $88,100.

Over the past 3 years, myself and members of Eclectic Groove have volunteered their time and energy to help promote the wealth of musical talent here in the Greater Toronto Area and have showcased the best in underground dance music for your listening pleasure.  Our monthly show has covered a lot of musical styles and – if I do say so myself – has helped to break down the stultifying effect of genre constraints on dance music.

Therefore we are asking you to help us keep independent community radio alive in Toronto. Most stations, or radio shows in general, don’t have – or allow – this kind of variety on the air.  CKLN is a special case as we are relatively free from censorship, genre boundaries, and we are free from the tyranny of choosing our programming from the top 40 (hit) playlist that pervades both radio and satellite channels.

Any amount is welcome and there are pledge incentives for amounts $25 and over.

First up:

We are very pleased to announce a limited offer of 10 spaces from to one of their highly successful SPEED DATING events! This is regularly a $49.95 value made available to our listeners for a donation of only $35!
“Turn your life into a social adventure and enjoy being single like never before… – Speed Dating and Singles events with style.” Act fast, because these are guaranteed to move quickly! *Please note this offer is available for singles living in the GTA.


We are proud to offer a digital download pack from local dance music label Intellegenix for a donation of $25! In keeping with the eclectic theme of In My Room, our friends at Intellegenix have pulled a wide variety of tunes from their impressive roster of talent.
