  • 1975-

On November 14, 1975, Canadian radio history was made. When the strains of Joni Mitchell's "You Turn Me On, I'm a Radio" transmitted over the airwaves at 93.1 FM, CKCU became the first campus-based community radio station in the country. In the ensuing 31 years, CKCU has continued to be a pioneer in community broadcasting, carrying out our mandate of providing an alternative to commercial radio and the CBC as a voice for the many Ottawa communities not served by the mainstream media. CKCU is licenced by the CRTC as a community-based campus radio station. This is a uniquely Canadian model which means that they are an integral part of the Carleton University community, but also serve many other groups within their broadcast range.
