CFMU is Throwing Back Every Thursday with Free Giveaways!

Want to get your hands on some spiffy CFMU merch? Our new logo is extra slick but it’s got us feeling nostalgic about the good old CFMU days. Remember when Soundgarden charted at #1 in 1994? Or maybe your style was more Missy Elliott charting in 2001. Every Thursday we’re running #ThrowbackThursday giveaways in style! Here’s how to participate:

On alternating weeks, we’ll be posting a graphic on Facebook or Instagram with a task. If you catch us on Facebook, you’ll see “Battle of the Retro Charts!” where we’ll be posting two top 30 charts from two different retro years. This is your call to fight for the chart you like best. Stand up for the oldies or advocate the newbies by casting your vote on the post. We’ll be selecting a winner at random the following Thursday at noon. Our Facebook contests will look a little something like this:

20708424 10155630467589222 7251887168228848300 n

Maybe Instagram is more your style, and we’ve got contests running there too! Keep your eyes peeled for a #ThrowbackThursday Instagram post happening the opposite week of our Facebook giveaway where we’ll be testing your music knowledge once again. All you have to do is guess the year of the chart and tag a pal to win! Be sure you’re following us @933cfmu so that you don’t miss your chance to win. Those contests will look more like this:

All in the spirit of these old school digs, we’re also posting weekly “Everybody Dance Now” throwback playlists on Spotify! Follow along to @933cfmu for handpicked local playlists from the 10 compilation discs that the station used to produce annually. Here you’ll find tons of local tunes that you may have never heard, along with some unreleased tracks by your Hamilton favourites. You may even recognize a few old bands that turned into some serious rock stars (anyone remember Charlemagne?)

Help us launch our new look, while celebrating how far we’ve come! CFMU is so proud to have a community that supports one another and is filled with local talent from all aspects of Hamilton. We’re always happy to collaborate and advocate on behalf of Hamilton’s voice with news, issues, events, music, and more. Of course, you can catch us on the airwaves at 93.3FM
