New Art Radio


What’s Up KW!??

I’m just gonna come right out and say it, Hot Damn, I’m really kinda diggin this radio gig!

For the past year, as the host of Culture Soup, I’ve interviewed tonnes of fabulously talented artists in and around our region.

From musicianssculptorswriterspainterspoets, and countless other creatives, to arts professionals and local arts institutes, one thing’s for sure. We truly have a wealth of artistic talent at our fingertips. Waterloo Region is literally bursting with incredible people dedicated to making Arts and Culture a top priority in our community.

Our arts and culture scene is constantly growing and evolving, so to make sure we bring you the best of what Waterloo Region has to offer, we have to grow and evolve along with it!

So now, it’s time to take it to the next level!

Enter, New Art Radio.


New Name. New Programming. New Extended Time Slot.

In addition to the new name, New Art Radio will have a brand new format. We’ll still be bringing you great conversations with amazing Artists, but now we have a whole hour to do it! We’ve added a Featured Artist segment to highlight local musicians, and a Current Events segment to help you plan your arts and culture activities within the region.

To attempt this shift alone would be utter INSANITY! So I’m very pleased to welcome my new Sound Technician/Producer/Music Maven, Heather Riemersma to the New Art Radio team! Heather is super passionate about our local indie music scene and is very well connected when it comes to what’s what and who’s who in up and coming bands and events in our region.

Together, we got this. I mean, it’s on! So be sure to Tune In!

New Art Radio airs every Thursday night from 8-9pm on FM 98.5 CKWR.

You can also listen live online at, and check out our New Art Radio blog for the shows you may have missed. We have the Culture Soup episodes archived here.

Our big Launch Party and Art Show is on June 14th 2014 at 7:30pm if you care to join us in the celebration!
