more good radio needs your support

Well, there's also Co-op radio, of course. Vancouver's CFRO 102.7 FM needs support for its application - especially from the artistic community. Here's a letter from my friend RC Weslowski, with the info:

Hi, everyone.
As you may know Steve Duncan, Diane Laloge and myself host a spoken word poetry program on Co Op Radio called Wax Poetic. Some of you have been guests on that show. What you may not know is that Co Op radio's license is up for renewal and the station is looking for public support so the CRTC can get a feel of the benefit of the station and our show. The station has received plenty of support in regards to their public affairs programming and now they are also looking for support from the arts community.
If you are so inclined to comment please read the info below. Thanks, Randy

If Co-op Radio and Wax Poetic have been of value to you as an artist, please let the CRTC know this. There are instructions on how to do so at the Coop Radio website or just go to this page and look for Vancouver Co-operative Radio. The deadline to submit your support is Jan. 23, 2008.

The CRTC is particularly interested in how our station helps the development of local talent (like you!). If you could tell them how Co-op Radio has been of benefit to your work as an artist, that would be very helpful to us. Thanks for your help and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this.
