Introduced as CKCU's Friday afternoon folkish show, 'Window' is an opportunity for newer artists to

hear their work on air, on CD and live in studio. However we also play established artists. We play (at least

one song) from every CD that we receive from agents or the artists themselves. The reason we use the term

'folkish' is that these days it's not to easy to tell where folk ends and rock, or country, or even jazz, begins.

Hence the genres 'folk rock' and 'country folk.' The original host of the show when it was in a late night slot was

Dean Verger, who gave the show to Laurie-Ann Copple, who added husband Tony.  Chris White started as a

regular monthly host beginning September 14, 2012, a great addition to the team with his experience 16 years

as musical director of the Ottawa Folk Festival.

Trish Bolechowsky joined as a host from August 2013 until December 2014. Ron Weiss joined the team in May 2016, and was with us till March 2017.
