CKUA gives donors groovy thank yous.
CKUA Radio Network is Alberta’s provincial listener-supported radio. If I listen for an hour, I inevitably recognize the names of great Albertan artists, events, and songs. The most overused adjective for the mighty institution: eclectic. And it’s cute when the ag report comes on. I picture lotsa farm machines humming through the fields around with me, tunes blasting. I guess if I could illustrate diversity, inclusion and equity without using that apple crate meme with kids looking over a fence, I could use a CKUA playlist. Heck they even amplify the voices and work of poets.
 
The ZMF Trio included Saskatchewan farmboy, Jesse Zubot. Jesse was a classmate of my friend, Charity. Promoting and watching him perform at the New Calgary Jazz Festival made me proud. Jesse’s mother is a painter. When his family decided where to put their farmhouse, they ran around the yard testing to see where they got the best reception for CKUA!
 
If you are Albertan, and you have never experienced CKUA, please tune in and see why we plan our lives around it.
