About INDI 101's broadcasting license is held by the Mohawk College Radio Corporation A Brief History There has been a student radio station in operation at Mohawk College for more than twenty-five years. It was located in various parts of the college throughout its existence until it moved to its ... See more current home in room G108 of the new Student Centre, which was built in 1985. As the station moved from place to place within the college its ability to be heard was increased. At first the station was broadcast only to the student lounge adjacent to the studios. Eventually the Mohawk Students' Association assumed funding of the radio station. In the mid 1980's, the signal was fed to two local cable systems for inclusion with other signals from Hamilton and Toronto and delivered to people's homes as one of the radio signals supplied in the basic cable service. In June of 1997 the Mohawk College Radio Corporation, the non-profit corporation that oversees the operation of the station, was granted a broadcast license for a Campus Instructional Radio Station. Up to this point the station had always been referred to as CHMR. With the granting of the license by the CRTC an official set of call letters was issued to the new station, CIOI FM. The station would broadcast on the FM band at a frequency of 101.5 MHz and using the call sign of C101.5 FM. On March 23, 1998 the station began broadcasting for the first time. In its short history, C101.5 FM accomplished a significant landmark. In August of 1998, after just a few short months on the air, the station reached an agreement with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League to become the offical radio broadcaster for the team. The first game aired on October 3, 1998. At the time, the station was the first campus radio station to become the originating broadcaster for a professional sports franchise. In early 2009 C101.5 FM experienced a re-branding that highlighted what the radio station is really about - supporting independent music particularly locally. It was at this time that INDI 101 was born. With a professional-sounding imaging package the radio station is now positioned strongly within the Greater Hamilton music community as a leader in providing exposure for hard-working independent musicians. Broadcasting on the FM band is something the students who first started the station dreamed of. Many went on to careers in radio broadcasting and related fields as a result of their positive experiences at the station. As new students and volunteers come on board, it is hoped that they will experience personal development and satisfaction as a result of their participation on INDI 101. In May 2010 INDI 101's funding was shifted to Mohawk College and a new era has begun where INDI 101 will be more involved in the development of tomorrow's broadcasters. WHAT IS A CAMPUS / INSTRUCTIONAL LICENCE? The Canadian Radio Television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) is the public organization that governs the use of the radio, television and telecommunications system in Canada. They are an arms length organization from the federal government. They use the Broadcast Act, which is passed by the Federal Parliament, as the rulebook for the regulations that stations must follow. If you want to get a license to start a new television or radio station you must apply to the CRTC. In radio broadcasting there are a number of sectors: the CBC, the private commercial for profit broadcasters, and the non-profit sector of which campus radio is a part. There are two types of licenses granted to campus radio stations in English speaking Canada - community based campus and instructional campus. A community based campus station is normally found on the campus of a university. Its mandate is to provide access to those people in the community, of which students are a part, which would not normally have access to the mass media. It is the voice of the smaller segments of any community in which a station is located. Here in Hamilton, 93.3 CFMU at McMaster University is a community based campus station. A campus instructional station is usually found on the campus of a community college in association with a broadcasting program that trains people for careers in broadcast. Its mandate is to act as a laboratory for students who wish to find work in radio broadcasting, broadcast journalism and related fields. This type of station sounds more commercial than a community based camous station located on a university campus. A campus instructional station like INDI 101 is still expected to give access to members of the community who are underserved by commercial media. Additionally, 25% of the on air programming of an instructional station must consist of spoken word. A campus instructional station must also play 35% Canadian music with a focus on diverse musical styles (especially independent Canadian artists) not normally serviced by commercial radio stations. Canadian content requirements are much less for an ethnic program. There is also a restriction of a maximum of four minutes per hour of paid commercial messages that can be broadcast. WHO IS THE MOHAWK COLLEGE RADIO CORPORATION? The Mohawk College Radio Corporation is the legal entity that was granted the broadcast license by the CRTC. Every full time fee-paying student at Mohawk College is a regular member of this corporation. A board of directors runs the Corporation. It consists of the Associate Dean, Media and Entertainment of Mohawk College as well as 3 other members of the student body from the Media and Entertainment Department appointed by the faculty of Music and Communications Media of Mohawk College - 2 members of the faculty of Media and Entertainment of Mohawk College or their designates from within the faculty of Media and Entertainment and one other faculty member from Mohawk College not excluding Media and Entertainment - a Chair, who shall be appointed by the other Directors and is usually a media professional from the community at large. This group meets whenever necessary to plan long term strategies for the growth and development of the radio station so that anyone who participates, whether they are a student in the Media and Entertainment Department of Mohawk College, someone in a totally unrelated course of study, or a volunteer from the community will find the experience worthwhile. The station is an asset of Mohawk College of Applied Arts and Technology in Hamilton Ontario, which also funds the station.

Refreshing...like CFNY used to be 30 years ago. I like the mix of new indie and occasional reggae. I would enjoy an internet playlist posted. Redman
