We've been Stayin' Alive. And we were Still Climbin'. But right now, we're Livin' for the City!

Since 1998, we have been offering the city of Montreal the very best in music and current affairs programming. We've been championing local and emerging musicians in Montreal all throughout our history. But this year, we have explored new innovative media projects to bring the city's music scene in the palm of your hand.

CJLO is at the forefront of new changes in radio. And we couldn't more thrilled that you've joined us for the ride.

In May, CJLO landed the number one spot for Montreal's Best Radio Station in Cult MTL's Best of Montreal Readers' Poll. What's more, CJLO hosts and programs also dominated the Best Radio Show and Best Host categories, securing the top spot in both.

Ultimately, it's been a great year for our station and for our city.

We're starting to see signs of life back in Montreal. From live music to festivals and dance parties, we were there to provide you the soundtrack to lockdown, but we're more excited to be your trusty local guide to the city's underground scene.

For the past year, CJLO has worked on creating an immersive mobile application and a one-of-a-kind documentary series on the Montreal music scene, one borough at a time. We knew we wanted to welcome you back to city life in a big way.

But in order to keep doing these projects, we'll need your help!

Please consider making a donation to help sustain operations at CJLO 1690AM. With your support, we'll be able to purchase more equipment, invest in new positions for students, and expand our presence all throughout Montreal.

We're here for you. We're here for Montreal. We're Livin' For The City!

CJLO's 2021 Funding Drive has great gifts for your donations!
