Create a program!

Category Uncategorised

CKGI welcomes proposals for new programs. Residents of Gabriola are particularly encouraged to present proposals, but we welcome them from anywhere.

Both spoken word and music program proposals are invited. As at most community radio stations, programmers will be volunteers. If your proposal is chosen, you’ll be asked to produce a pilot episode before we commit to a series. CKGI members will be available to advise and assist, as necessary.

Proposals may be submitted at any time.
