On-Air Fund Drive is over. Thanks to those who donated.

The on-air portion of the fund drive is over. Thanks to all those who gave us some of your hard earned money and those who pledged to do so. We do our best to make every dollar count and to bring you the best programming we can produce everyday.

The total contributed so far to our Fall Fund Drive is $6633.19 .

In reality we are always fund raising, so even if you could not contribute during our fund raising event we appreciate donations whenever we get them. We can’t do it without you.

Live stream is back up

Update: The livestream is running. We check it daily so when it goes down we might not notice it right away. Call or message us and we will try to get it up as soon as possible.

This is why we fund drive…

Fall Fund drive Is On!

The CHLY Fall Fund Drive is on now. Show your support for the music and spoken word content you hear on CHLY by becoming a member (or renewing your membership). Or consider donating, either one time or monthly. If you have a business (or know someone who does) purchase a business mention. All of it helps us pay the bills and stay on the radio, and more importantly it provides us with the funds to develop more of the shows you want and to improve the shows we have now.
