    CKUW survives thanks to donations from listeners like you! We are a community driven, ad-free, non-profit broadcaster. We receive no financial support from the city, provincial or federal government.

    Once a year we ask listeners to renew their support or to contribute for the first time, for our 2020 pledge drive we have set a goal of $60,000 of listener support. Fundrive happens February 7th -14th, stay tuned to find out how you can support your ‘downtown underground’ radio.

    The volunteers, board and staff of CKUW wish you a very happy holiday season. We’ll have live local radio for most of the break thanks to our dedicated volunteer hosts. Call 204-774-6877 to make a request from our holiday music collection. You can look up your favourites here – CKUW Christmas Collection

    Our office will be closed starting December 20th. We’ll be back to regular office hours on January 6th. If you have recently won a prize we will hold onto it for you to pick up in the new year.
