What’s better than turning on your radio and hearing a new voice? Not much. As always, CKUW is excited to offer programmers of all levels of experience with on-air opportunities, and this month we are welcoming three (well, two and a half) new shows to our airwaves.
Starting this Wednesday, November 28th, tune in at 9pm each Wednesday for Electric Sunrise, an hour of fresh synthwave and vaporwave sounds with your host Lilja.
To polish off your weekend, check out the new-and-improved Joke’s On You, back after a year’s hiatus. Host Jon Wilson brings in some of the funniest voices in Winnipeg stand-up comedy for some serious and not-so-serious talk, Sundays at 5pm.
We’re also welcoming What On Earth Is Going On?, a talk show produced in Kingston, ON by Ben Charland. A variety of thought-provoking topics are covered from week to week. We’re featuring it on Mondays at 11pm.
One of our most exciting recent features is now fully available for download! The three-part series was lovingly curated by internationally-renowned electronic musician Keith Fullerton Whitman, and designed for airplay by a dedicated group of local volunteers. Follow the link below for access to the nearly four hours of eye-opening and ear-tickling content, and be sure to check out send+receive for more locally-focused news, sounds, and events.
What a day!
Yesterday, on November 8th, 2018, CKUW opened its doors to the student population of the University of Winnipeg and invited them to make the radio content of their dreams. They didn’t disappoint. See below for the downloadable versions of all our special Student Radio Marathon programs!
We hope to see and hear some of these same fledgling radio stars next year, along with some new voices.

On the occasion of Remembrance Day week, CKUW 95.9FM is airing a very special Remembrance Day broadcast.
Tune in on Saturday November 10th at 8am, as well as Sunday November 11th at 5pm for Letters, a locally-produced radio play.
Letters is a radio play written by local playwright Brian Langlotz. It’s inspired by real events of World War II, featuring those of the playwright’s family members who served as soldiers in that conflict. Come follow the journey of Paul Bailey, played by Jordan Phillips, a Canadian soldier fighting his way through Italy during World War II, and his wife Betty, portrayed by Elizaveta Katykhina, waiting for him to return, as told through the letters they send each other.
This special production was recorded and produced at CKUW 95.9FM.
