Notice of Annual General Meeting

Please join us on Thursday, October 29th, 2015 7:00 PM at
Vancouver Island University—building 355 room 203

Click the headline to see the full announcement including important information about special resolutions to be voted on; plus directions and parking information.


On October 5, 2001, less than a month after the Trade Towers came down (or were pulled down, depending on your view), after a couple of weeks of testing, the mics channels were opened and CHLY-FM was officially on the air. After a three hour on-air party we got into the regular programming schedule.

Come down to the station for our open house, have some cake and help us celebrate. We are still in the basement of the Queens, down the China Steps from the Thirsty Camel (or down the stairs behind Black and Blue Tattoo if you are coming from that direction). Meet some of the people who keep CHLY on the air day in and day out, and hopefully some people from the past may show up too.

Should be a fun time and a good kick-off for the fall fundrive which starts the next day. (we will take your money early if you want *hint* *hint*)

It is with great sadness that we have to report the recent passing of one of our original show hosts and friend Fergus Foley. His show Third Stone from the Sun was heard for the first 10 years of CHLY’s existence (plus another year on the internet before we got our license). Every week he took us on a folk/world trip around the globe.
Our deep condolences to his family and loved ones. He will be missed.

As our way of honouring his memory we will be playing highlights of his work on Third Stone on Saturdays from 2pm – 4pm until the end of the year.
