CKUA Radio Network: My embroideries are created at home and I like to have a relaxed but stimulating atmosphere for me to come up with new ideas. I get easily tired of radio stations that repeat the same tune about 10 times a day and only play the standard chart music.

CKUA is a unique radio station where you rarely hear the same tune or artist twice in the same day. They also pull music from all over the world introducing the listener to music they would never dreamed existed. They play 24 hours a day and you can listen over the internet if you do not live in Alberta. - Free Web Tools for Webmasters
