The Background of CFDM Radio:
CFDM 105.7 FM Radio was originally a small project of the Flying Dust First Nation with the intention of openly communicating with people in the immediate area. It was in the late 1980's that Flying Dust began to formulate its operations. Using a tower and receiver from the Missinipi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), the reserve was able to begin broadcasting in 1997. Programming at that time consisted of a one-hour spot every Monday to Friday with announcer Ben "The Golden Voice" Lachance. By 1999 programming had grown to five hours every weekday. Assisting in Ben's duties was Dwayne "Babes" Derocher. Together they worked towards keeping the listeners up to date with local news. Programming also included mandatory amounts of cultural content, new and classic music, and tons of local perspectives. CFDM prided itself on the ability to promote cultural and traditional messages while also keeping people in the region informed of important local events.
CFDM Radio Today:
CFDM made a name for itself throughout the last nine years. The
station always helped community organizations to promote their messages
and also assisted with funding assistance. CFDM Radio is a major
sponsor of the Flying Dust Youth & Disabled Wish Foundation annual golf
tournament. That spirit existed when Ben Lachance ran the station
and that legacy lives on.
