CFUZ Peach City Radio Ready to Celebrate 3 Years on the FM Dial – Summerland Review

A love for music, radio and community will be on full display at the Cannery Trade Center in Penticton on February 5th.

CFUZ Peach City Radio is celebrating three years on the air on 92.9 FM and the station is encouraging members of the community to join in the fun.

Station volunteers are preparing a full day of live programming to celebrate the South Okanagan’s first licensed FM community radio station and its third anniversary.

“The station is there to give radio access to the public,” said Jackie Del Rizzo, president of the Peach City Community Radio Society. “It’s a community tool that should be used to help share messages, ideas and culture.”

For three years, the station served a mix of mainstream tunes and alternative classics while promoting the works of local artists.

“In particular, we are proud of the growing list of musical genres that can be heard on the station day-to-day,” the station president added.

Peach City radio hosts, who are also volunteers, will be asking listeners for donations Feb. 5 to help keep 92.5 FM running, the station said.

“Community donations also help us put in place training tools so new volunteers can join us, bringing in other music and spoken word ideas to complement our program and content,” said DelRizzo.

Community donations can be made to the station website or by phone at 236-422-0929 during the third anniversary celebration.

The non-profit radio station operated in an online-only format before officially debuting on the FM dial in 2019.
