Making the Links Radio has been broadcasting for a decade on CFCR 90.5 FM community radio in Saskatoon. Making the Links is committed to reporting on international and local issues in a way that is informative, indepth and offers coverage not normally found in the mainstream media. Over the years we have featured prominent international environmentalists such as David Suzuki and well known citizen advocates such as Maude Barlow of the Council of Canadians. We have done features on the struggle for democracy in Africa, Canadian oil investment in Ecuador, the growth of organic agriculture, and the fight against the global AIDS pandemic. We have profiled communities and people on the front lines of social and economic change working for an equitable and sustainable world.
We air on CFCR 90.5 FM in Saskatoon two times a week – Wednesdays at 6 pm and Fridays at 7
CFCR 90.5 FM now streams audio on the internet. Tune in and give community radio a try.
The Making the Links crew operates as a production collective and is currently comprised of Don Kossick and Tyler McCreary. Don Kossick ( firstname.lastname@example.org) coordinates program development with the group and Tyler McCreary ( email@example.com) is our webmaster.
On the website we showcase radio programs we have done, provide written articles by ourselves and others, and highlight some of the great work in film that is available on the web. The video on the site is not our own work, although we aspire to do some documentary film projects in the future.
Continuing sponsors of Making the Links include the Community Outreach and Education Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the Seeds of Change Community Centre, Oxfam on the Prairies, The Canadian Union of Public Employees, Saskatoon Chapter Council of Canadians, Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation, and Turning the Tide (R)evolutionary Media.
We would like to thank the PSAC for the support given on the community radio project in Mexico.
The Making the Links crew is strongly committed to building independent community media, and we ask our listeners to support and use alternative media sources wherever and whenever possible. And we thank all our listeners for their time and interest.
