Trent Radio challenges YOU to create a record during the month of February.

For the past three years, Trent Radio has put forward a challenge to the Peterborough/Nogojiwanong (and area) community called the RPM Challenge. Record Production Month (RPM) asks people to build an album throughout the month of February. There are no winners or losers – it is a challenge designed to light a flame of creativity under the community pant-seat.

The challenge is to create 10 songs or 35 minutes of recorded material. This is a fairly loose and open-ended challenge (i.e. there are no limits on what constitutes a song!). The RPM challenge “rules” do stipulate that the music (though not necessarily the lyrics) is written and recorded between February 1 and March 1 of the year.

Trent Radio is not in charge of RPM, the community is! Though it was Trent Radio staff from who originally brought RPM to Peterborough/Nogojiwanong, this event is really made possible by volunteers from the arts community in town. Throughout the month of February musicians and music-lovers from the community will run skill-building workshops to help others make their RPM creations the best they can be. If you are interested in helping out, or running a workshop contact RPM on Facebook or email

This challenge is to ALL humans living in Peterborough/Nogojiwanong, join the community! As the official RPM website notes encouragingly: “What’s stopping us? Nothing.”

So get out there (or IN there, perhaps) and get record-producing! It might just be the best challenge you ever give yourself.

See for details and the event listings both for RPM 2020 and the RPM Listening Party, held on March 6. Check social media for postings about workshops throughout the month of February, they will be finalized in the coming weeks.

You can also check out the for more information about the challenge globally, and to sign up to the official count.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

"Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system."
