INTRODUCING 30 DAYS OF CKXU LOVES YOU!
good ol' CKXU love!
Meet one of our programmers, Steve!
Where did your CKXU Journey begin?
"A long time ago, when I was an Undergraduate at the U of L. I knew a bunch of faces from the station -- back then, I was too busy to join the peeps at CKXU. But when the University Journal asked that I worked with CKXU to inform listeners and students about the new University Journal, I trained to be a presenter. Though the dedicated journal show never turned out, Steve's Saturday Show blossomed instead!"
What role has CKXU played in your life?
"Being part of the CKXU family has helped me to meet new people and to connect with a broader group of listeners. CKXU has also offered me the chance to develop a new set of skills and increase my confidence in speaking. And, of course, it permits me to share great music with listeners for miles around (2900 watts FTW). Music is important to almost everybody. A station which can broaden the perspectives of others by presenting them with new and comforting music performs a massive social benevolence; one that provides thought-provoking discussion as well as music performs a double beneficence."
What's your favorite thing about CKXU?
"That it offers people the opportunity to share their passions with others and that it provides a strong connection between the University of Lethbridge and the city's residents.... OK, so that's two things."
What's your favorite thing about FUNdrive?
"How engaged the listeners and the radio presenters get. It gives us the opportunity to see what a huge impression we have on the city and what effect our listeners have on CKXU."
