30 Days of CKXU Loves You - DJ U

CKXU Crew

INTRODUCING 30 DAYS OF CKXU LOVES YOU!

For 30 days straight, we'll be posting testimonials from our volunteers, programmers, members, and supporters, all focused on spreading that
good ol' CKXU love!
 

First up is one of our programmers, DJ U!

What kickstarted your radio journey?

"It all started with a dream. My best friend and I hosting a radio show! The rest is history."

What role has CKXU played in your life?

"It's given me a platform for expression, it's allowed me the opportunity to explore my interests, and discover new one's. I can bring my ideas to life, be a vehicle for others, share stories, practice skills like how to ask proper questions and most importantly It's fun."
 

What's your favorite thing about CKXU?

"The diversity! The openness and acceptance for any (within reason) program proposal. Everyone brings there uniqueness, there essence and personality to there show. You can't get that variety in programming anywhere else. Each show has something unique to offer. As a listener I feel like you can find the right program that appeals to you out of the many offered. As a programmer, I like to think there's an audience out there waiting to hear your program and fate will bring us closer... Or word of mouth. I find that the experience of being with CKXU is what you make of it. Meaning, however many hours you put into your involvement or depending what your intentions and goals are can determine the type of experience you have. I enjoy that flexibility when things are busy at school I might take some time away from CKXU and my program but let's say when the summer comes around I'm back to doing weekly live shows."

What's your favorite thing about FUNdrive?

"Last year was my first FUNdrive, The opportunity for listeners to get engaged. I feel like we put in more effort to reach the community during this time of year it's very exciting to give back and increase that interaction with the listeners, it's kind of like Christmas again."

Tune in to The Eclectic, Mondays at 9pm to hear some of DJ U's radio magic!
