Ottawa Live Music is a program where musicians perform live on the air for your listening pleasure.  Each episode is dedicated to a different local or independent act that we’ve invited to the CKCU studio to play their music and answer a few questions.  We feature a wide variety of genres, and we welcome performers of all levels of experience in our community.  Every show is a unique unedited live experience where anything can happen!

Your feedback is an important part of the program.  To join the discussion, visit and click the ‘Add Your Voice’ link on the right side of the website.

A dedicated team of volunteers that includes Charles Anthony, Dana Somayaji, Phil Bennett, David Pratt, David Sklubal, Wyatt Avery and Joe Fraser work on-air and behind the scenes in order to make this program happen.
