Thanks to everyone who made our Touch the Transmitter tour across Alberta a success. We visited 16 transmitters, dozens of communities and met hundreds of the people whose support keeps CKUA strong. It was truly an amazing experience getting to meet our dedicated fans and friends who make this station unique.

While the tour is sadly over, we’ve compiled some of our favourite moments into a travelogue, so we can always go back and see the fun that we’ve had.
