What's Inside The Box?

Ever wondered what all those radio personalities look like? Well here is a CKUT roll call. We asked our programmers to let us know what the year has been like for them, what song/book/film sums it up and what they missed about not being in our studios.

We used this info for a campaign on CKUT’s Instagram and on our Facebook.
