March 11th, 2014 by Station Manager

Thank you to everyone who has donated during Fund Drive! We really appreciate your support! At this time, we don’t have concrete numbers as some of the bills are still coming in but we look to have raised approximately $10,000!! That’s an awesome jump from last year! Thank you all so much!

There are a whole whack of people to thank for Fund Drive and that is coming soon, but before that we’d like to tell you about something exciting:

Many of you have indicated that you weren’t able to donate during fund drive but would love to do so in the coming days and we’ve taken that to heart! Our fund drive website: is still up and will remain up until the end of March! Remember though, that some of the perks on the site are limited and may go quickly so grab them up soon! If you donate before this Sunday, March 16th at midnight EST, your name will be entered into the grand prize draw which will take place on Monday March 17th at 8:30am. Just a reminder that there are several prizes to pick from in the grand prize draw:

1 Pro-Ject Audio Systems Essential II turntable courtesy of New Day Records

1 pair of weekend passes to Bluesfest courtesy of The Thunder Bay Community Auditorium

1 (of 3) pairs of passes to Red Rock Folk Festival courtesy of Live From Red rock Folk Festival

And we may still announce some things in the next few days!

We will pick 7 winners names from the hat on Monday March 17th during The Scoop and those 6 (or more) will be contacted in order and asked to pick their prize.

If you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch with us here at or call 343-8881

Kickoff Weekend Wraps!

March 2nd, 2014 by Station Manager

Sorry for the delay in writing this! We all needed some sleep after this weekend’s festivities!! Thank you to everyone who came out to our open house on Saturday! It was great to have so many new folks through the station and to meet so many of our listeners! A lot of great questions and donations! Thank you all for your generosity and curiosity!

I’d also like to extend a hearty thanks to everyone who braved the horrendous cold last night to head out to Black Pirates Pub for our kick off show! The bands were all incredible and regardless of the cold and the crowd, they all really brought their ‘A Game’ last night! It never ceases to amaze me how much amazing talent there is in this town! Thank you all for supporting LU Radio! Please take some time to check Outside the LinesOcean City DefenderReverb BombForever Dead and Sunscraper out and show them some love!

Don’t forget that you can donate to LU Radio and support Fund Drive 2014, right here! Instead of having to give 4% of our earnings to Indiegogo and then another 4% to Paypal, we’ve eliminated the initial 4% by creating our own website to host our crowdfunding portion! We hope you will take a look around, pick a perk package or two and support your only campus and community radio station in Thunder Bay! We will be doing the majority of our updates for Fund Drive on this site ( so make sure to check back often!

Plenty of great programming still on the horizon for Fund Drive! Tonight (Sunday) at 9, P.T.O. Junction will have ‘auction’ off a wrap party ticket along with special co-host Glory Ranger; at 10 it’s the return of ADDRubixKubeThat’sRubixWithAnXKubeWithAK (ADDRKTBWAXKWAK) and at 11, it’s the premier of Solaris, a brand new show exploring music as an abstract form of communication! On Monday, Krista has Marian Ryks-Szelekovsky, the vice provost of student affairs at Lakehead University on at 8:30 for The Scoop; 50 from Tiny Tunes will deliver 50 homemade cookies to the first person to donate during  her show; semi-regular LU Radio guest Rainstorm will co-host a show from 10am until noon which means you never know what might happen (5 year olds are very unpredictable); then Krista returns for The Musical Scoop at noon with Thunder Bay Blues artist James Boraski! And that’s just the next little while! Special shows and giveaways abound this week!

By the way, I just checked on tickets at Calico Coffeehouse and they only have one single ticket left!! We still have some left at LU Radio and will drop them off on Monday morning, but soon you’ll only be able to get your ticket from your favourite programmer…if they are willing to give it up!

Thank you to everyone for supporting LU Radio and Fund Drive 2014! We love that you love your radio!
