CKUA’s weekly Top 30 Chart lets our audience know which new albums are making waves. A new Friday afternoon program, On the Rise, will make the chart its focus. If you want to hear music by artists who span almost every musical style and hail from all over the planet, this is the show for you.
We recently caught up with host Dawn Pemberton to find out what’s being planned as this program launches. She said, “On The Rise is all about the music! We’re connecting the musical dots, taking a peek at CKUA chart history, chatting with great artists, and, of course, counting down the Top 30 albums every week.”
When asked about her sidekick, Dawn said, “Brendan Cross is a man of many talents! He’s a fantastic technical producer, and as we count down the albums, he’ll act as a historical guide, leading listeners through fun CKUA chart history. He’ll be providing stellar musical knowledge and delightful comic relief.
Dawn, already beloved by CKUA listeners for her work on Saturday afternoon’s Get on the Good Foot, is excited to engage with the CKUA audience in a new way on Friday afternoons. “I’m really thrilled to be able to connect with more artists and share this incredible music!”
On The Rise with Dawn Pemberton and Brendan Cross, Fridays noon – 3pm
