Announcing CPR’s 2017 Holiday Calls From Home

Calls From Home is a monthly CFRC Prison Radio segment that connects friends and family with their loved ones behind Kingston’s prison walls through the power of community radio.

The holidays can be an especially difficult time to be apart from loved ones and community. This is a great time of year to let prisoners in the Kingston area know that you’re thinking of them – by sending a greeting, requesting a song or poem, or leaving a voicemail message to be read or played on the radio. Personal and general messages of support are both welcomed and encouraged!

CFRC Prison Radio will be broadcasting our special Holiday Calls From Home on Wednesday December 20th at 7PM, at 101.9fm in Kingston and worldwide at CFRC.ca

Please visit our contact page or Facebook Page to see how you can get in touch at any time with your messages and requests!
