Beyond The Pond
Morning Chris from "Beyond The Pond". Please could you say hi to Stephen from Chris and Johanne from near Stonehenge. We went to see to Stephen in a tiny hall in Weymouth, Dorset last November. We also had a little chat about CKCU and Canadian Spaces. Plus, there was my memory of the interview I did with Stephen for Canadian Spaces way back in the early 90s - them were the days :-)

Hi we seem to have lost CKCU as of 1000AM..nothing being transmitted

10:28 AM, March 23rd, 2019
No sound here either. Is the Camp Fortune transmitter offline? I was wondering if the Ont. gov't plan to cut student fees already happened.... dead air at 10:00 am. If this is a glitch, it's a timely warning, re need to challenge the policy change.

10:52 AM, March 23rd, 2019
Yes, if anyone is paying attention, CKCU is not on the radio, only internet this morning...

10:52 AM, March 23rd, 2019

10:53 AM, March 23rd, 2019
