Listen Live

On Air Now

What is Basia Bulat listening to these days? You can find out by getting your hands on one of our CD prize packs. We’ve asked some of our favourite artists (and CKUA hosts) to pull together a great collection of albums. Every one comes with a handwritten card about their picks — and a few of them come with other surprises as well.

We’ll be giving them away throughout the fundraiser, so tune in to CKUA for your chance to win one.
