CHFR is heard at 96.5 on the FM dial, on Hornby Island.  We broadcast from the Bob Kungl Studio at Joe King Ballpark on , No, we do not stream on the web, so if you don’t live on or near Hornby, you will not be able to hear our station. We haven’t ruled out streaming in the future, but for now we are focused on upgrading our FM license and maximizing the strength of our existing FM signal. We do intend to post podcasts of special shows, such as interviews, in the near future, but for now, this site is intended for communicating what’s going on with our local radio to Hornby Islanders and others in the vicinity who receive our signal.

See our schedule here

For islanders who wish to support our efforts in bringing them the best radio signal possible, please see our current fundraising project. We are trying to raise money to purchase an FM processor, which will make a huge difference to the quality and strength of our broadcast. . Your support is most appreciated!
