Canadian Spaces – CKCU – Saturday June 29, 2013

CKCU is at 93.1 FM in Ottawa or on the web.

This week’s show was co-hosted by Mike Regenstreif and Chris White.

Canadian Spaces on CKCU in Ottawa is Canada’s longest-running folk music radio program. It is heard Saturday mornings from 10:00 am until noon (Eastern time). It was hosted for more than 33 years by the late Chopper McKinnon and is now hosted by Chris White and a rotating cast of co-hosts. Today was my first time in the co-host’s chair and I had a ball hosting live radio again for the first time since ending the almost-14 year run of Folk Roots/Folk Branches on CKUT in Montreal in 2007.
