Festival Radio

Presented by Blindman Brewing and Calgary Foundation

Festival Radio, June 19 – September 4, brings you the spirit and music of the summer season, wherever you are!

If your eyes are tired from looking at a screen, or if you’ve tried and failed to help your kid with that assignment, explaining the difference between cumulus clouds and stratus clouds, leave your worries behind and head into summer with Festival Radio.

From 4:30 to 5:30 PM every Saturday afternoon throughout the summer, CKUA connects listeners with the festivals and artists that they love. Put a blanket down down in the backyard, grab a cool beverage, and fire up the barbecue. You deserve a little bit of summer, starting right now!

Next on Festival Radio!

For our Festival Radio finale, Saturday September 4, hosts Dawn Pemberton and Grant Stovel feature live performance highlights from Alberta festivals past, including Edmonton, Calgary, and Canmore Folk Music Festival!

Plus they’ll dig into a couple of stellar performances from Frazey Ford and Ndidi O, recorded as part of the 2021 Calgary Folk Festival Summer Serenades series.

Tune in as Dawn and Grant dip into the most memorable moments from CKUA’s vault of amazing live performances, recorded right here at home, with songs from Revel in Dimes, The Hamiltones, The War and Treaty, William Prince, Michael Franti and more.
