Abbotsford, BC - CIVL Radio, the campus and community radio station of the University of the Fraser Valley, has recently filed an application to the CRTC to change their allotted frequency to 101.7FM and to move their tower location to near the Mount Lehman Road highway exit. From now until May 4, 2010 the CRTC is seeking public consultation from community organizations in Abbotsford, Mission, Aldergrove and Langley.

CIVL Radio Society President Dustin Ellis noted that “CIVL Radio has a mission to support the local community anyway that we can. CIVL Radio does this by promoting local events and by playing public service announcements.” Ellis also pointed out that “CIVL Radio is a non-profit society and these services are provided free-of-charge as long as the message is for the benefit of the community.”

Community organizations can submit their comments online at the CRTC website, by mail or by fax. To find the CIVL Radio application, Google “CRTC 2010-192″ and click on the section called the “UCFV Campus and Community Radio Society.” During the consultation process, the CRTC will need to know why the organization supports CIVL Radio with details to support their position.

Ellis remarked that “CIVL Radio cannot wait to broadcast on the FM dial, but until then one can listen to CIVL Radio online or one can add any of our programs as a podcast. Check it out at www.civl.ca today.”

To help CIVL Radio help the community with promotional support, send an email to psa@civl.ca with the details or phone 604 851 6306.

PEI Peeps Playing in Abbotsford

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Hailing from O’Leary on the west side of Prince Edward Island, The Grass Mountain Hobos are coming to Abbotsford this Wednesday November 11th.  Check them out at the Duke of Dublin Irish Pub at 8pm.

Here some information about The Hobos straight from their CBC Radio Three profile:

With a stage show that harkens back to the days of the travelling salesman, The Hobos are the cure-all elixir for those requiring entertainment. Their brand of music is authentic and complex, mixing equal parts of the carnival, farm, tavern and circus. Two acoustic guitars, a banjo, mandolin, doghouse bass and a fiddle create the unique backdrop over which the 6 vocalists paint malevolent yet harmonious works of art.

If you miss them in Abbotsford, you can catch them on one of their other British Columbia dates before they head back to the Maritimes. The catch is that these dates are in Kelowna and the Kootenays.

The Progressive Thinker on Google Earth?

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

Look closely in that GoogleStreet view pic.  Unconfirmed reports suggest that the young lads stooping around that white van are Abbotsford’s own, The Progressive Thinker.  It looks as though they are unloading their gear across the road from the Turd Ferguson House in Abbotsford.

These same unconfirmed reports suggest that left from right are guitarist Jason Nicholas, bassist Franklin Currie and guitarist Stephen O’Shea sitting in the van.  Not present for the yet-to-be-confirmed band portrait is drummer Stu Hood.

Stay alert!  Stay CIVL!
