A-Trane Calendar [Thursday October 20th 2016 – Sunday October 30th 2016]


Before proceeding to this week’s Calendar a word from our sponsor …

Many of you may know that I’m the host of the A-Trane Radio program every Friday afternoon on CFRO Vancouver Cooperative Radio but many of you probably don’t know that this summer marked the 30th anniversary of my doing the A-Trane. The A-Trane Calendar in its myriad forms evolved over the years out of my passion for music, my appreciation for the richness of the Vancouver musical community and my desire to contribute to making the scene even better.

In these days of auto-tune hits and factory-produced songs, there is a wealth of creative and beautiful music made by real people that flies below the radar of the increasingly fragmented (and syndicated) mainstream media. Part of my self-adopted mandate is to connect musicians, presenters, listeners and venues so that music makers can find their audiences and music lovers can feed their Curious Ears. This comes through the information of who’s playing and what’s happening where and the best of creative music from around the world, across the country and in our community – I’ve had many artists tell me that the first time they ever heard their music on the radio was on the A-Trane!

The medium that makes all this possible is CFRO, a radio cooperative that has been broadcasting in the lower mainland since 1975. The cooperative part means that it’s owned by its members (that’s you and me) and almost all volunteer-driven – you can count the number of employees on the fingers of one hand! The non-commercial part means that we don’t sell ears to advertisers, we use the airwaves to present our passion in music, public affairs, community access, alternative voices and to strengthen our community.

Being non-commercial means that we rely on our members for funding through memberships and donations. This week is the Fall Membership Drive – one of two times during the year where we ask our listeners to pledge support to what we do.

This fall’s membership campaign is special in a couple of ways: In the next few months, we’ll be moving back to our regular studios at Columbia and Hastings in the Downtown Eastside. As you can imagine, this transplanting of a radio station and all its equipment and facilities is a laborious and expensive project – we’re asking our members to give a little bit extra (lagniappe!) to help us over this hump.

Fortunately an anonymous benefactor has stepped up and offered to match new donations and memberships to help deal with these extra moving expenses. So this is an opportunity for your donation and/or membership to go twice as far as usual!

So if you’ve ever gone to a concert because you saw it on the A-Trane Calendar or had your gig listed or your music played on the A-Trane or heard something that knocked your socks off, please consider making a donation or taking a membership. It’s an investment in your community that’s sure to pay dividends!

Just click through the link and do what comes natural – go to http://coopradio.org/ and click on the Donate To Co-op Radio link at the upper right! It’s even tax-deductible!

… and now back to your A-Trane Calendar which is already in progress ….

This is a highly subjective calendar of things going on around the lower mainland of Vancouver in the next week – mostly jazz but not always …
I announce the A-Trane Calendar every Friday afternoon around 4:30 on The A-Trane (2:30 – 5:30) 100.5FM or http://coopradio.org. I often feature music by many of the artists listed here on the show. The A-Trane shows are available after broadcast at the CFRO archives.

If you’d like your event included, message me or drop me a line at: nou.dadoun@gmail.com

And consider pledging your support for the A-Trane and CFRO non-commercial radio.
