Join us for an evening of shopping in support of CKCU FM during their annual Funding Drive. A percentage of all sales will be donated to this great community station.

On November 14, 1975, Canadian radio history was made. When the strains of Joni Mitchell’s “You Turn Me On, I’m a Radio” transmitted over the airwaves at 93.1 FM, CKCU became the first campus-based community radio station in the country.

CKCU is a Registered Charity funded by Donors, the students of Carleton University and members of the community, and by Program Sponsorships. In 1978, CKCU held its first annual Funding Drive, asking listeners to support community radio. Since then, Ottawans have pledged several million dollars over the years to help make CKCU the largest listener-supported radio station in Ottawa-Carleton.
