By Letter to the Editor on April 15, 2018.
This is in reference to a recent letter by Kirby Doktor, in which he complains about local radio’s lack of variety.
I certainly agree with many of Mr. Doktor’s opinions, having been annoyed myself many times over the years by hearing the same songs and advertisements over and over. But have no fear, Mr. Doktor, for there are alternatives available! Lethbridge has its own campus and community radio station – CKXU 88.3 FM – that is broadcast from the University of Lethbridge and operated by volunteers and music lovers like myself. The variety of music that gets played on CKXU is staggering, with dozens of specialty shows, variety shows, rock, pop, jazz and blues shows – and more.
Other quality options include the lovely CKUA, which can be heard at 99.3 FM and the CBC radio stations that broadcast via 100.1 FM and 91.7 FM. While I cannot guarantee that you will enjoy every song you hear on these stations, I can guarantee you’ll be exposed to a much wider variety of music with less repeats and less commercials, but with more Canadian, Alberta and even Lethbridge-based content. So rest assured, Mr. Doktor, your mind need not remain numb – you just need to change the station and spice up your musical diet a little.
