Taste the great grapes of Ontario and help CKCU this summer by coming to the CKCU Wine Appreciation Series hosted by Rod Phillips, historian and wine writer. Each month Rod Phillips will showcase one grape and lead a tasting of four wines (May is Riesling, June is Gamay, July is Chardonnay, August is Cabernet Franc.) All wines have been chosen by Rod Phillips with an emphasis on Ontario wines. Space is limited to 25 people per event and Advance Ticket purchase for the series is available now for just $80 + taxes.
The series will take place at Mike's Place (Second Floor, University Centre, Carleton University) between 12:00 and 1:30pm on the last Thursday of each month (May 30th, June 27, July 25th and August 30th.)
All proceeds go to CKCU, and you can purchase Advance Tickets by contacting Michael Valerio (613 520-2600 ext. 1622 | e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org). Advance Ticket offer open until May 17th.
CKCU will be 38 years old this year, not least because of the continued support of our listeners, Carleton students, and our sponsors. We have built a loyal following and strong connections with the local and Carleton communities. Now is the time to take the next step and think about how we can build on those foundations and take the next step in our evolution. We hope that you will help us do that!
CKCU is undertaking a Strategic Review of key issues relating to our governance, funding, physical and technical infrastructure, volunteers, relationships, and programming. This process will assist in ensuring that the station :

Open Letter to ‘Chopper’ McKinnon
Aww frig… Learned of your passing in the paper last week.
>>>> ~~~ <<<<
Undoubtedly an important figure in all matters folk music, but even more importantly, in my mind – a good guy. Regardless of his well-deserved, lofty position. A bright, funny and decent cat who you felt lucky to share a pint with.
His ‘Thumbs McKinnon’ miscue prints on the board are all over what is the heart and soul of CKCU – a collective, ongoing, genuine love affair with music. There’s a big Canadian Space left to be filled on Saturday mornings. Pitter patter let’s get at’er…
PS: Did not know that Chopper’s given name was ‘A. Lindsay’, until I read it in the paper. I guess his parents couldn’t have been expected to know that they’d produced a vintage ‘Chopper,’ huh?<<
A Tribute to Chopper McKinnon
Please gather to celebrate Chopper's incredible contributions to musicians and audiences during his 33-year run as the host of Canadian Spaces.
This can't miss event will feature many of the people who knew him best
