Calling All Local Bands!

Attention all new local bands and musicians! Do you think you are one of the top five local acts to watch in 2016? Now's your chance to show us why - apply for the Uniter Fiver and enter for a chance to access recording opportunities, industry contacts, local coverage, and best of all, a showcase at The Good Will Social Club on January 14th

For a call to action over the radio it would be best to say: go to to apply. Send your application to before Nov. 30 at noon, with "Uniter Fiver" as the subject line. In addition, you'll need to send us:
  • Your/Your band's bio
  • Names of all band members
  • A photo of you/the band
  • The date of your first show/performance as a band
  • An MP3 of the song you'd like to showcase
  • A link to this same song on SoundCloud
Your act must also meet the following qualifying criteria:

  • Solo artists or bands must not feature employees of The Uniter or members that have been in bands with current employees of The Uniter (ah nuts!)
  • Artists must be available to play the January 14, 2016 showcase.
  • Artists must not have been featured in previous Fiver Bands to Watch/Uniter Fiver features.

Pledge-O-Rama Payment Processing & Incentive Collection!
on November 3,2015 by jared
Hey Folks!

First off, we'd like to thank you once again for your kind donation to UMFM - without the support of good people like you, the station could not continue to thrive and bring you great programming each and every day.  Your generosity is appreciated more than you could ever know.  We wanted to give you a quick update on payments and incentives, so please read below - as always, let us know if you have any questions at all.

Credit Card Payments

Over the next few days you should be seeing a charge on your credit card statement paying for your pledge.  Each year, we have to wait until November 1 to post any credit card charges in order to properly dispense tax receipts to those of you who have requested them.  We also need to wait for November to roll around as each October we also need to process the final installment payment for donors who chose to pay over 12 months during the previous Pledge-O-Rama - we do apologize if the delay has caused any confusion.

The charge that you will be seeing a charge on your statement comes up as "UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA WINNIPEG, MB" as we process through the University Of Mantioba Student Union cashier's office.  This applies to donors who are paying their pledge in full, as well as to those who are making their first term payment.

Cash & Cheque Payments

If you wish to pay your pledge via cash or cheque you will be receiving a envelope from us in the mail in the next week or so.  Simply affix proper postage, place your concealed payment in said envelope and drop it at your nearest postal outlet - it's that simple!

UMFM Friends With Benefits Cards

Once again, if you donated to Pledge-O-Rama 2015, you'll be receiving our latest, greatest Friends With Benefits Card which is good for special offers and great deals at more than 40 great Winnipeg businesses and services.  The cards are currently on the way from our headquarters to your headquarters - if you don't receive the card, please let us know and we'll correct that situation ASAP!

Pledge Incentives

Finally, if you have yet to receive your Pledge-O-Rama incentives, we will be making arrangements to deliver them to your doorstep.  We will getting in touch with you to confirm sizing for your incentives when warranted, and will make arrangement to the goods into your hands at that time.  Thanks again, we appreciate your patience!

Should you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 204-474-7027. Once again, we can't say thanks enough for your support - you're truly amazing!
