During this current crisis Shades of Classics will continue to air every Sunday morning on CKUW 95.9 FM, but your host will not be live in the studio due to regulations.  We will still bring you original programs each week that are recorded in my home studio and aired by CKUW staff.  Watch this page for future updates on this situation.

Even though our FunDrive programs have past you can still show your commitment to Shades of Classics and/or Classical Delights and our listener supported community access radio station by making a pledge online.
You can do this anytime securely on the CKUW website.

Many thanks for your support of our programs and station!!
