New Year, New Programming!
on January 4,2016 by michael

UMFM is excited to announce that beginning this Friday, January 8th and running every Friday night from 6 - 6:30 PM we'll be airing UNDER THE NEEDLE, a series of live performances originating from KEXP in Seattle. While we pride ourselves on the great locally produced programming our volunteers create each week, we're also eager to provide the Winnipeg community with some quality broadcasts from further afield and Under The Needle fits that bill. Each week a different guest stops by KEXP's studios - solo acts, seven-piece bands and all sorts of other configurations - and performs a handful of live tunes that can only be heard via the original broadcast and now via UMFM.

Our first broadcast will feature Destroyer, whose most recent album Poison Season was the #40 album of 2015 here at UMFM. Coming weeks will feature King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, METZ and more!

Happy Holidays To All!
on December 17,2015 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 2015 which was historical year for UMFM that saw us execute our most successful Pledge-O-Rama yet, 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 some great new programs to our grid for your listening enjoyment. 

Starting on December 23rd at 6PM, we'll be moving into holiday programming mode, resuming normal programming once agian starting January 4th.  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 2016!  We've got some exciting new initiatives developing that we can't wait to share with our, our loyal friends and listeners!

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!
