You may have noticed a change in the CKUA broadcast schedule. Celeigh Cardinal has left CKUA to focus on her music career. We are so grateful for the time Celeigh spent with us, and for making Full Circle an integral and enriching part of our programming schedule. She truly is an in-demand, rising star and we wish her continued success.
We’re happy to announce that Marek Tyler, who has been a guest host on the CKUA airwaves over the past few months, will be hosting a new program. Marek has decades of experience as a working musician. He’s been a drummer for more than thirty years, touring and recording with nêhiyawak, Wayfinding, Kathryn Calder, Dan Mangan, Himalayan Bear, MeatDraw, David P Smith, AA Sound System, and others. He’s also an educator, an entrepreneur, and a community leader.
takahki is a Cree word for “good, nice, beautiful.” Marek’s mom suggested it, and we can’t wait to hear all that this new program will include. Marek says the show’s focus will be learning, sharing, and celebrating Indigenous music innovators. Welcome, Marek!
Tune in to listen to takahki:
Monday 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Wednesday 1:00 am – 2:00 am
Friday 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Saturday 4:00 am – 5:00 am
