Calls From Home Holiday Special Archive

Thanks to everyone who submitted to our annual Holiday Special, we had tons of requests, messages and shout outs to share this year for your loved ones incarcerated in the Kingston area. Have a listen below.

Calls from Home: Holiday Edition 2020

Next Wednesday, December 23rd, CFRC Prison Radio will host their annual holiday Calls From Home special on our airwaves! They know that the holidays can be a particularly difficult time for prisoners and their loved ones, and that 2020 has been a particularly difficult year as well. If you know somebody stuck behind bars in the Kingston area this holiday season, CPR invites you to send them messages and request songs for their holiday special. Messages and songs will be played on CFRC 101.9FM on December 23rd from 7-8pm. Our signal reaches Collins Bay, Millhaven/Bath, and Joyceville Institutions, as well as Quinte Detention Centre and Cape Vincent Correctional Institution. If you have a message or song to send this year, please leave a message on our voicemail at 613-417-3359 or email us at cfrcprisonradio@riseup.net before noon on December 23rd, 2020. Tune in to 101.9FM in Kingston or online at cfrc.ca on December 23rd to hear the messages and songs.

Best wishes for peace and freedom in 2021.
