It's Transition Time!
on October 4,2010 by jared

Please be advised that UMFM will be temporarily moving our studios on Tuesday, October 5th as part of our ongoing studio renovation project that is nearing completion.  As we will be moving our entire computer network, including our automation system and traffic computers, none of our regular hosts will be in again until Thursday, October 8th. Also during this time, our online stream will be down and we will be without email capibilities for roughly 4 to 6 hours. Thank you for your patience while we move towards a bigger and better sounding UMFM!

Website Ch-ch-ch-changes!
on August 6,2010 by jared
Hey all you loyal UMFM listeners, you asked for it, so I am happy to report that you can now view the playlists for your favorite UMFM shows by visiting the program grid and clicking on the program in question! We're also working hard to restore all of the playlist archives from the old site, so look for that in the near future. Also recently added is the ability to export any playlist on the site to a text file, so you can copy it down and take it with you!

We've also brought back our campus & community radio links page, so you can check out one of the more than 70 C&C radio stations across the country.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be adding many more site enhancements that should make your surfing experience more enjoyable! If you have any ideas as to how we can improve our site, we'd love to hear them! Just email and we'll be sure to take them under advisement!

Thanks for your patience and continued support!

CRTC Releases New Campus & Community Radio Policy
on July 27,2010 by jared
On July 22nd the CRTC, Canada's Radio & Television Commission released a brand new policy in regards to the governance, mandate and definition of campus & community radio stations in Canada. The culmination of more than a year's worth of hearings, reviews and submissions, this new policy aims to provide a simplified approach in regards to the licensing for campus and community stations, including elimination of the campus instructional category, elimination of the distinction between Type A & Type B community stations, as well as revised provisions for developmental stations.

In addition this new policy has outlined some major changes to Canadian content regulations for our sector, increasing CanCon requirements from 35 to 40%, made changes in the requirement for spoken word programming, and has finally addressed to issue of categorizing turntablism and sound collage under the existing CanCon system. Please take the time to review the entire policy to fully understand how it will affect some of your favorite local radio stations!
