Type B community stations that expect to broadcast network or acquired programming must outline how these programs will complement, but not replace, their local programs:  Acquired programming is usually used with in locally created sections.  We may play programming we believe is of interest to our area that is beyond our capacity to research and produce.  We may also play programming that we feel models the kinds of things we would like to achieve here.  We have lots of available broadcast studio time, so requests for live programing opportunities are not likely to be turned down.

3.6 Local talent development

Please provide plans for the licence term with respect to the development of local talent, in particular projects to promote and feature music by new Canadian artists, local artists and artists whose music is seldom heard on other stations.  Local and traveling musicians are frequently brought into our broadcast studio to talk to and play live for our audience.  Our fund raising events always include and usually feature local artists.

3.7 Volunteer participation

Please describe your proposed measures to:

  1. facilitate community access to programming;  Program proposal forms are freely available at the station, which is fronted by a publicly open cafe.  That form is also available for download at our web site.  Invitations to fill one out and become a programmer are frequently made over the air in our broadcasts.  

  2. promote the availability of training throughout the community;  Training and support are freely available at the station upon request.  We anticipate conducting open workshops on a seasonal basis to familiarize our selves and any one interested, in the use of our changing equipment and facilities.  The crafts of programming, reporting, journalism, and the production of radio and other things is part of our playing with the toys and rubbing shoulders. 

  3. provide for the ongoing training and supervision of those within the community wishing to participate in programming.  We are a community that wishes to keep maintain and improve our equipment and respect and opportunities, we listen to our radio, and listen to people who listen to our radio.  Also see  a +b above.  We are also considering two or three web cams in our studio so people could look and see who is at the radio station and what is going on.  Whether we can afford the equipment, band width and perhaps some data storage for it, hasn't been determined yet.
