CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: December 20, 2016

unnamed

Goodbye & good riddance, 2016.
In all truth, this past year has been a tough one for a bunch of different reasons. Here’s hoping 2017 will be a little easier on us all.

These are our last charts for the year. The CKUT offices will be closed fromDecember 23rd until January 2nd, but our programming will continue on in its full awesomeness over the break with a couple very special holiday programs added to the mix. Hit up our website for details on our holiday programming schedule.

Happy holidays from all of us at CKUT.
