Cedarville, Ohio—CDR Radio (WCDR 90.3 FM) will celebrate 39 years of broadcasting during their annual Ingathering 2001 fund drive. From October 2 through October 6, CDR Radio will mark Ingathering 2001 through a variety of special programs, including biblical responses to the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. The phone lines will be open for listeners to make comments and pledge support for the non-commercial, Christian station.
Contributions to the Ingathering 2001 effort serve to meet the operating needs of each affiliate station of the CDR Radio Network—a network of nine Christian stations serving portions of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. The financial goal for the annual October campaign is $735,000.
“We are extremely thankful for the generous support of friends in the Miami Valley area. The direct involvement of individuals and families makes it possible for the community to access family-oriented programming 24 hours per day in this region,” shared Paul Gathany, general manager of CDR Radio.
Special programming during Ingathering 2001 will include interviews with Christian leaders discussing the importance of protecting our national freedoms during “Clergy Appreciation Day” on October 3. Listeners can also participate in a three-hour Southern Gospel Music Request Program beginning at 9 p.m. on October 6. The CDR Radio Network will announce new program additions, including Back to the Bible (6 p.m. weekdays), an international teaching ministry with programs in 25 languages spoken by 50 percent of the world’s population.
Listeners can call toll-free at 1-800-333-0601 to comment on programming or make a financial commitment. Additional information about Ingathering 2001, including an online donation option, is available at the CDR Radio Web site: www.cdrradio.com.
