  • A trio of new programs for you to enjoy!

    Posted by Sam on April 7th, 2021

    Big news for fans of eclectic music (which, presumably, means you)! After tearing through CKUW’s training modules, we have some fresh-faced volunteers gracing our programming schedule with brand new music shows. Have a listen to the following two this weekend and beyond:

    Dead Medium will have you waking up early on Saturday. Join Myles at 8am for explorations of two genres that you wouldn’t ordinarily pair together: country and punk. It may seem incongruous, but one listen to Dead Medium and you’ll see they go together like bacon and eggs.

    Sounds Like Music helps cap off your weekend on Sundays at 8pm. There’s no doubt when listening to this show that your host Dave is a lifelong fan of sounds coming from instruments. Eclectic in every sense, Sounds Like Music will serve up left turns and curveballs aplenty.

    Starroad Junction, which you will be able to hear very soon on Thursdays at 4pm, will quickly become your go-to show for progressive and exploratory tunes. Campus and community radio can’t exist without a heaping helping of the weird stuff – and Jesse is going to make sure you get plenty of the arty, the heavy, the twisted, and the experimental.

    As always, we are thrilled to welcome new voices to the air – and we remind you that you could be next! If you’re interested in bringing your love of music and community to CKUW’s listeners, begin your journey by emailing Ugonna at [email protected]

    We are once again humbled by the support from our listening community. Thank you so much to all our donors, community partners and volunteers together we are creating an exciting future for CKUW.

    Our live on-air fundraising drive has ended and we remain several thousand dollars short of our final goal. If you forgot to donate or missed the drive, please make an online donation today through fundrive.ckuw.ca It’s not too late to get one of the beautiful 2021 supporter T-shirts, but we are ordering soon and time is running out.

    If you did make a donation and are eligible for incentive gifts (T-shirt, Bluetooth radio etc.) we are organizing curbside pickup in mid-March and we will be in touch soon to let you know the options. Once again we can’t tank you enough, stay tuned and tell a friend we’ve got lots of great radio to come in 2021.

  • We need your donation today to fund our 2021 operations

    We are now 2/3 of the way to our goal with $40,023 pledged to Fundrive 2021, thank you to everyone who has given so far.

    If you haven’t donated yet, please don’t wait. You count on us to be there for music, news and information and we count on you for one quarter of our budget. We need your donations to ensure that CKUW can have an easy recovery from the University lockdown and be ready to welcome volunteers back into our studios.

    A donation of $70 covers essential supplies like alcohol cleaner and microphone covers to keep everyone safe. You can split your pledge up over several months and we’ll thank you with the Friends card, 2021 T-shirt and a chance to win one of the many bonus music gifts from our partners in the music industry. Donate today at fundrive.ckuw.ca

    Your donations are well spent, we are an open and democratic non-profit, audited every year for the CRTC. If you have any questions about CKUW’s operation please get in touch, we want you to feel confident that your donation is supporting our volunteers and the community we reach through radio.

  • From our homes to yours!

    Posted by Rob on February 12th, 2021

    This year our volunteers had to adapt to broadcasting from home, we’re very proud of their efforts and now is the time to show your appreciation. Donations to CKUW help pay for things like a high speed Internet connection, computers to send and receive audio files, staff to assist volunteers and much more.

    A gift of $120 can be split up into monthly payments making it very easy to give at higher levels. At the $120 level you’ll receive the CKUW Bluetooth Radio or other great gifts of your choice. Alternatively you can request a tax receipt from the University of Winnipeg Foundation.

    We need every listener to contribute, our volunteers have put in extra effort this year and you can too! Go to our online donation page or give via EMT/etransfer or PayPal to [email protected]

    Thank you to everyone who has donated, we have hit $28,216 pledged to support your downtown community voice !
