These funds were made available under the CRFC’s Radiometres program, a program that aims to improve local programming, volunteer training and community members’ participation. It’s not the first time we’ve received funding from the CRFC; a total of $115,177 has been awarded to CIVL over the past five years. All of this money has been dedicated towards personnel being funded to work on coordinating volunteers and station resources in order to best develop CIVL’s overall operations and sustainability through programming, promotion, and academic research and engagement. Nearly $10,000 of this grant will be dedicated to the operation and promotion of the FVMA event itself, over and above the hiring of a full time employee to tackle this exciting initiative for the next year.

This past weekend, local Abbotsford high school phenoms Yes Men Jr. shocked and awed the audience with their masked performance of psychedelic kraut-drone, disappointing the scenester faithful by finishing third behind runners up 7th Avenue, whose homegrown brand of good ol’ rock’n'roll coasted them into an easy 2nd place, just behind Week 1 champions, Abbotsford’s own Merciful Angel.
