CICK 93.9fm - Smithers Community Radio is a volunteer based, non-profit organization, staffed by
two people, that is funded by grants, some of which are awarded to us through the NCRA, along
with funding from Memberships and Sponsorships.
The CICK Lounge Car Sessions are a low barrier, intimate performance space that have been a
fantastic stepping stone for musicians to put their toe in the water of performing on live Radio and
to a studio audience. There have been a few great examples of the paths taken once a band has
stepped into our 100 year old train car studio, one being the Indigenous youth band, The
Infirmary. This 4 piece band started out with a Lounge Car Session, followed by being signed as
an opening band for Bison, finalizing with signing them as a headliner at our Annual Deck Fest!
The Infirmary has continually thanked us for the opportunities presented to them, and we are
happy to do so!
