Happy Holidays From UMFM's Staff & Volunteers
on December 16,2014 by jared

With the holiday season now in full swing, the staff and volunteers at UMFM would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours nothing but the best tidings of the season! 

Once again, we need to thank you for your support during 2014, which was historical year for UMFM that saw us execute our most successful Pledge-O-Rama to date, recording and posting some of our most amazing live sessions to date, and of course continuing to produce countless hours of quality radio programming, along the way introducing a number of new programs to our grid for your listening enjoyment. 

Most importantly, 2014 also saw the successful creation of UMFM Campus Radio Inc, a new not-for-profit society that as of January 1, 2015 will hold UMFM's broadcast license, which has been renewed for another 7 years (!!!) taking us into 2021! We've been fortunate to have been given the gift of radio and we are more than happy to share it with all of you! 

Starting on December 23rd at 6PM, we'll be moving into holiday programming mode, resuming normal programming once agian starting January 5th.  During this time, some of your favorite shows will be doing special extended episodes, some will pre-record and some will take some well deserved time off.  Our offices will also be closed for those 2 weeks, but should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us via the normal channels

Until then, enjoy some quality time with your family and friends and most importantly, be safe and kind to one another -- we can't wait to see you all in 2015!  We've got some exciting new initiatives developing that we can't wait to share with our, our loyal friends and listeners!

Out of the basement, into the club.
on November 17,2014 by michael

High Q Productions brings you a record sale like no other. No musty smelling gatefolds, no saggy sweatpants and no kids. That's right, this 18+ event is putting the class back in the classic medium of vinyl.

It's the CENTRAL CITY RECORD SHOW!

Twenty-five carefully selected record vendors - several of whom are first-time sellers - will be bringing their freshly stocked crates to Union Sound Hall on Sunday December 7th and much of their wares will be on sale specifically for this event.

Admission is a mere $2 (you read that right) and the show will feature DJs spinning all day so you'll have a soundtrack to your crate-digging exploits. Plus, the bar in the smaller room at Union Sound Hall will be serving drinks in the afternoon so you'll have a chance to come up for air (and something stronger).

Don't miss The Central City Record Show, Sunday December 7th from 11am - 4pm at Union Sound Hall, 110 Market Street, proudly presented by 101.5 UMFM.

Remembrance Day Programming
on November 11,2014 by jared

In honor of those who have served our country, past and present, we will be running three hours of special programming today starting at 10 AM.  These special shows have been curated by Christian Cassidy, host of West End Dumplings - our regularly scheduled programming will return next week at this time.

Pledge-O-Rama 2014 Is On Now!
on October 17,2014 by jared

Call Us At 204-474-6610 Now To Pledge Your Support!

Since our revitalization in 1998, UMFM has been providing a diverse range of music and talk programming to Winnipeg. As with any organization, we have changed and evolved over the years but at its core, UMFM has maintained a mandate to provide our listeners a forum for music and voices that may otherwise go unheard. 

For 15 years, the station has been able to operate successfully without having to seek outside sources of income, even though the cost of running the radio station has steadily continued to rise. Our funding from the University hasn’t increased since '98, and like many other media outlets, we've seen our advertising revenue steadily decline over the last 5 years . We are now in a situation where when need to find alternative revenue streams to be able to maintain our daily operations costs.

Plainly stated, during Pledge-O-Rama this year, our goal is to raise is $28, 000.  Starting at 6:30PM on October 17th and running through to 8PM on October 24th, all of our hardworking showhosts and volunteers will be hitting the airwaves and taking your calls in in an effort to reach our goal. $28, 000 isn't an arbitrary number to us, it represents roughly 15% of our operating budget and would go a long want towards assisting in the day to day maintenance and operation of UMFM.  After Pledge-O-Rama kicks off, we'll be answering those phones daily from 6AM until 3AM.  However, if you miss during our prime pledge hours, you can just leave us a message at 204-474-6610 or drop us a line at pledge@umfm.com and one of our Smooth Phone Operators will get back to you ASAP!  Or if you want to come down to the station during Pledge-O-Rama to pledge your support in person, we'd love to see you.

Once again, we’ve got fantastic limited-edition merch or tax receipts to reward you for your donation to the station!  Plus, individual shows are cooking up some great surprise rewards for their listeners so donate or give us a call during Pledge-O-Rama.

For more information visit our Pledge-O-Rama page and please help UMFM continue to provide a home for alternative voices, inquisitive minds and adventurous ears!

Half Pints Prize Packages

Once again, thanks to the generous support of the folks who make great beer over at Half Pints Brewing Co., we've got some killer prizes for giveaway to all our donors.

We've got a daily draw for a package that includes a Half Pints t-shirt, toque, two pint glasses, bicycle bell and a bumper sticker for every donor who pledges $75 or more, that's EIGHT prize packages in all!!!

PLUS every donation over $75 will also be entered in the grand prize draw that includes a private brewery tour and tasting for you and up to 20 friends after which you'll leave with a gift cerfiticate good for a keg of your choice of one of Half Pints tasty wares.

Golden Ticket Draws

Another key returnee to Pledge-O-Rama is the amazing prize we call the Golden Ticket! Everyone who pledges $250 or more will be entered in a draw to win one of three prizes that will allow you and a guest to attend as many shows at the Park Theatre, the West End Cultural Centre, the Pyramid Cabaret as you want over the next year.  In addition, our festival friends are getting in on the act as well! Jazz Winnipeg are offering up a golden ticket to the 2015 TD Jazz Winnipeg Festival, which will allow you and a guest to attend every show that the festival throws at you next June, and The Winnipeg Folk Festival are offering up 2 full weekend passes (camping not included) for the 2014 festival, which takes place over 5 beautiful days next July in Bird's Hill Park!

So yeah, you read that right - you and a guest can get into a years' worth of shows at three of the best venues in town. Local acts, touring bands, punk, hip-hop, bluegrass - you name it, if it's on the Upcoming Shows calendar (*with some exception) at the Park Theatre, the West End Cultural Centre, the Pyramid Cabaret, you and a guest can waltz right in with this special pass that you can only get if you pledge $250 or more during Pledge-O-Rama. And this is in addition to the tax receipt or package of incentives we're already giving out for pledges.

Incentive Levels

Finally, all of our supporters will get a big THANK YOU and the satisfaction of knowing that they have supported something as worthwhile as UMFM. However, there are a few extra tokens of our appreciation available. Of course, all pledges, big or small will make a difference! We plan to shower gifts on everyone who takes the time to call us and show us their support by donating to UMFM. Remember, plegees can chose between a tax receipt or the one of these great incentive packages, corresponding with the amount donated:

Here's a complete list of our great incentive packages, tax receipts are also available:

Please be aware that we cannot set aside specific t-shirt sizes during Pledge-O-Rama. All of our shirts will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. All UMFM Hoodies will be custom ordered on Monday, October 27th and delivered to your doorstep or mailbox once receievd.  Pre-pledge to UMFM and not only we will guarantee you your desired shirt size, but one of our fine hosts will deliver it to your door or your mailbox!

Democracy Now... LATER
on October 16,2014 by michael

With Pledge-O-Rama 2014 in full swing, just a reminder that all syndicated programs have been preempted for the week, including our noon broadcasts of Democracy Now. Regular programming will resume next Monday, October 27th but until Friday October 24th we invite you to join Station Manager Jared McKetiak as he invites local musicians and artists in to our live studio for performances, discussion and information on how to make a pledge to UMFM to ensure that the programs you love to tune into continue unabated for another year.

If you would like to listen to Democracy Now, we invite you to visit their website where each day's episode is available to stream.

Don't forget to call our pledge line at 204 474 6610 - smooth operators are standing by to take your pledges now!
