After the launch of the CFCR 90.5 the hardworking bunch staffed in the radio worked hard to build the foundations by recruiting old CHSK hosts and personalities, training volunteers and initiating fundraiser for the non-profit broadcast entity. CFCR before getting the broadcasting privileges was aired via Saskatoon TeleCalbe without any charge. Thus the space was created to fine-tune and organize the CFCR 90.5 FM that was later going to be tuned by a large number of audiences in the communities of Saskatoon.
