All Ears: A Shared History of CKUA and CJSR is the story, told by more than 25 of Alberta’s finest radio makers, of how public radio has come to hold a prominent and esteemed place as the true voice of Alberta’s diverse communities. Producers from both CJSR and CKUA joined forces to explore the connection between the two stations, in celebration of CJSR’s 30th anniversary.
In just under an hour, the podcast explores how community radio in Alberta has grown from one simple radio club at the University of Alberta to the dynamic community radio stations that we know and love today. The only thing that hasn’t changed since the Varsity Radio Players took to the air at the University of Alberta way back in 1942, is the passion that everybody involved in public radio has for their community.
All Ears: A Shared History of CKUA and CJSR airs Sunday, January 5th at noon on CKUA.
