“Advertising through CFCW has been amazing! So many customers let us know that they heard of us through Danny and Sharon. The response our business has received is wonderful. Thank you CFCW!

I forgot to tell you this;
Raine and I were so happy with the work; I mean delighted.
Of all the radio stations, you were the first to ‘nail-it’ first time out.
No endless explaining on the nuance we wanted to create.
It was perfect. I want to thank you and your team for that.
We both ( Raine Dowell & I ) had to listen to the commercial three times to try and find something that needed correction, but the syntax, script, pace, character of voice, energy, and over all color of the commercial was all there at first crack.
We got so excited we wanted to buy tickets to the event losing ourselves that WE WERE the ones actually bringing Mr.Martin to the city.
We did check our burrow for our tickets though…just to make sure.
Ya, good seats!
Thanks again Marty!

Marty Stevens did an outstanding job as Master of Ceremonies for our golf tournament evening program. This was a major event for our organization involving over 150 people. While he was extremely well prepared for the program, he was fabulous with his reading of the audience, and using humour throughout the evening. As coordinator for the golf tournament, I received feedback from many of the participants…and it was “off the charts” positive. The evening flowed exceptionally well from one program item to another. We even tested Marty’s auctioneer skills at one point in the evening and he surprised everyone, including himself I think, as to how good he was at this considering this was his first time trying his auctioneer skill. Thank you again MartyWe will most definitely be asking Marty to host our next years event if we indeed decide to do this golf tournament again.

RE: CFCW Radio – Marty Stevens
To Whom It May Concern:
To promote our local Spruce Grove event, we have purchased on-air time with CFCW and their affiliated radio station K97 since 2005. I have been personally working with Marty Stevens on this contract for 3 years. During this time, Marty has provided us with exceptional customer service and has taken a personal interest in our event. As we are a non-profit organization, Marty always strives to provide us with quality on-air advertising space to help maximize our exposure while remaining conscious of our budget restrictions. The set-up is always handled quickly, and planned well in advance of our event. I have never had concerns that Marty could not meet our needs. After our event, Marty has always been courteous and checked in to see how successful our weekend was. Small gestures such as these are reasons of why we continue to advertise with CFCW.
Over the years, the radio station has participated in our event by attending our parade – a gesture that not many of our other suppliers do – that shows our committee that CFCW does take genuine interest in our event.
The benefits of advertising with CFCW have been phenomenal to our event. It gives our event the opportunity to be recognized by thousands of listeners outside of our typical promotional area. It allows for residents of Edmonton and Leduc – which are too large for us to advertise to – to hear about our event and drives people to visit our website.
I highly recommend Marty Stevens and CFCW for your advertising needs. I can confidently say that their organization has provided us with professional, above-average service and I have no hesitation in recommending them to other small or non-profit groups working with a smaller budget. I always look forward to working with Marty, and am happy to continue working with him and CFCW in the coming years

“Marty is a true professional. I can’t tell you how many sales calls I get from media outlets each week trying to convince me to spend money with them. But with Marty, the calls are always taken, as I view him as a partner to our business. Without his insights and assistance, we would not be as satisfied with the station. I wish all media reps were as helpful and trustworthy as Marty.

I’ve worked with Marty on a number of campaigns, and with excellent results. Marty consistently goes the extra mile to make sure we have great exposure for our company.

“Marty has called on us to provide original music and jingles for his radio clients for many years. It’s clear from our many projects together that he truly cares about his clients and does everything in his power to make sure they get the best possible return on their radio investment. Marty has always been very professional, supportive, creative and enthusiastic in everything we’ve done together. I’ve worked with literally thousands of radio station salespeople in the past 30 years and Marty is one of the best. If you’re fortunate enough to be his client, you are in good hands.”
Owner & President, Imagine Words & Music Inc.
“Although my business relationship with Marty has been very brief, I am extremely pleased with the professional manner in which he conducts his affairs. He has gone above and beyond on several occasions, offering working solutions that had no bearing on the original scope of the job.

Marty,Bill’s been auctioneering for a few years, but this spring we decided to go on our own and this was our first sale. We’re really pleased, as the auction was beyond our expectations. Things sold really well and the seller was really happy! Thanks for the great job! Lots of people told us they heard it on the radio….so thanks for your part in our Auction! We will definately be advertising with you again.

Hi Marty, Everything went great! Thanks for asking. I was pleased to see that our CFCW winners table was full and that they were very pleased to be seated right next to the stage. Danny was fantastic of course, and I couldn’t be happier with the way everything went… Thanks for all of your help in putting together to the promotional campaign. Have a great day!

Your professionalism, talent and marvelous sense of humour was most entertaining and was enjoyed and appreciated by all. Thank you for attending and supporting our concert and please know your contribution to the overall success of the day was appreciated immensely.Our warmest thanks,

We had Marty out to the greenhouse for an on-location remote and despite the weather everything went great. The overall remote package turned out to be very cost effective and it will definitely be something we’ll do again.

We were looking for a unique advertising program that included 15-sec commercials instead of the industry norm of 30-seconds. Marty was able to design a 52-week program that gives us great exposure throughout the year and provides us with the opportunity to ‘heavy-up’ the campaign during our peak periods. Marty has always been conscious of my time restrictions and it’s pleasure to have him stop into the store.

This is the first time we have advertised with CFCW 790 and are truly impressed. The spots were tailored to our needs, spaced well in broadcast and, most exciting of all, encouraged many folks to visit our store who might never have heard of us. Thank you CFCW!

Hi Marty,Thanks for the note and the warm wishes!We are anxious to see how the tender process shakes out for us – tenders close on Monday. Hopefully it goes well. We have had some pretty strong interest. We have inadvertently managed to stir up the coffee shop talk in this region to say the least, and it seems that one of the biggest pieces of news around here this year may be “Who bought the Doolaege Ranch!?”On the tender form, we have a section where parties can check off where they first noticed the ad. This is to satisfy our curiosity of where we got our best advertising value. Perhaps I can share some info with you in that regard at a later date.We have found radio advertising to be highly effective and a variety of business contacts and neighbours commented that they “heard the ad on the radio”. We needed to get the word out in a hurry to our target market within a short window of time and radio advertising helped achieved this for us. Thanks, CFCW!!

Hi MartyThere seems to be a serious following for this event I’m impressed , haven’t sold any trucks yet , but you guys have got the traffic here!

I just got the results of the trip to Ice on Whyte contest that we advertised in a number of places and 66 out of 92 entries heard about it on CFCW or through the CFCW listener newsletter. It pays to listen to Marty and buy ads on CFCW and not the rural newspapers. Thanks!

Hi Marty,We had another great festival.Just wanted to thank you and Stella Stevens for your invaluable assistance with Winterfest 2011.
Stella’s interview with Colleen was great… many of our festival attendees confirmed this!
Look forward to getting you involved in our future country/folk events.
“CFCW…where to even start. We’ve worked on and off with the station in the past number of years but made the decision to apply concerted effort to the rural Edmonton market and explore the demographic within Edmonton this year. We have been thrilled at the outcomes we’ve seen and the whole team has bent over backwards to ensure impactful and meaningful message delivery on our behalf. At every turn, our substantial requests are considered and supported. Jackie-Rae, Stella and Marty are among my most highly regarded radio promoters in this community and on behalf of Big Brothers Big Sisters, I say thank you…for your ongoing commitment to our success.”.
