Global Research News Hour: Valentine’s Day Fund-raiser with Richard Gage, Rocco Galati and Yves Engler


He who pays the piper calls the tune.” -anonymous

Join host Michael Welch for a special hour of live radio, featuring special guests Richard Gage, Rocco Galati, and Yves Engler!

The Global Research News Hour was revamped in the fall of 2012 and features an hour of global public affairs news programming.

Winnipeg radio station CKUW 95.9FM is the station at which the programme is produced. The Global Research website carries the show as a podcast.

The programme has become quite popular and is now carried by the Progressive Radio Network (PRN.FM) and by at least two other community radio stations across North America.

CKUW is on track to dispense with all paid advertisements. So apart from the funding provided by the students at the University of Winnipeg through a student levy, the only source of funding will come from listener donations.

Like the Centre for Research on Globalization, we believe that in order to maintain our independence we must avoid funding from private or public foundations. This is why the station must periodically ask for support from our listeners.

Even though the station operates on a shoe-string, it takes resources to keep a community radio station operating and maintained in order to support a variety of programs.

The Global Research News Hour is planning a special LIVE broadcast on Friday February 14 at 1 pm Winnipeg time (2:00pm EST/ 7:00pm GMT).

We hope our listeners will consider listening in, and donate to keep CKUW and the Global Research News Hour on the air. Special items are offered as incentives for those who donate $35 or more!

In Winnipeg, tune in 95.9FM.

Outside Winnipeg, CKUW may be streamed here:

The Global Research News Hour, hosted by Michael Welch, airs on CKUW 95.9FM in Winnipeg Fridays at 1pm CT. The programme is also broadcast weekly (Monday, 5-6pm ET) by the Progressive Radio Network in the US, and is available for download on the Global Research website.
