Listen Live

On Air Now

No matter where you listen, CKUA is your station, it’s your community. This vibrant, magical, musical refuge is also yours to grow. By making your donation to CKUA, you grow creativity, discovery and the future of Alberta music.

To keep CKUA fresh, alive and blossoming over the coming months will take $700,000. With a contribution from each of you who values what the station brings to your life each and every day, we know that goal is within reach.

Of course to help get there, we’re once again delighted to reward you with 10 days of celebration, surprises and coveted prizes!

Spring Fundraiser kicks off on Thursday April 20 with live performances from Lindi Ortega, Altameda, Joe Nolan and The Heirlooms from 6pm-8pm. We’ll also take a look back at the past year of CKUA — marking some of our favourite concerts, interviews and event broadcasts.

On the prizing front, our popular VIP Edmonton Folk Fest experience is back for early bird donors and one lucky Grand Prize winner will be off to exotic Bali for 8 days/6 nights courtesy of AMA Travel!

Plus we’ve added two new categories to the prize pool:

The ‘I’m already a monthly donor’ Prize

That’s right, we now have a prize exclusive to monthly donors – just for being you!  All current monthly donors are not only automatically entered for the Early Bird and Grand Prizes, but you’ll also have a chance at winning a BOSE Bluetooth speaker courtesy of The Vitamin Farm.

App Donor
Donate through our brand new app and you’re automatically entered to win your choice of 32GB iPhone OR a 32GB Samsung S7 Edge! Download the app through the App Store or Google Play and connect with CKUA like never before.

Also, for the first time we’re introducing an exclusive behind-the-scenes CKUA experience prize as a ‘welcome to the family’ for first time donors: a DJ Hosted Vinyl Listening Party in our priceless library! Been supporting for a long time? Luckily you still have the opportunity to get in on the action: grow the CKUA community by inviting a friend to donate for the first time and have them bring you along as one of their nine guests!

Once again have upgraded CD prize packs hand selected by artists such as Mac DeMarco, Tom Wilson and Blue Rodeo’s Greg Keelor plus your favourite CKUA hosts! Each come with a (priceless!) handwritten note from the artist or host.
