Arts Alberta

CKUA's studio in 1929 was lined with burlap purchased from a local brewery for $25.Arts Alberta was a one-hour arts and culture magazine hosted by now Senator Tommy Banks, and ran daily on CKUA for almost a decade. During that time, virtually everyone who was anyone in the arts and culture community in Alberta and Canada was featured and/or interviewed. Everyone from Juno Award winning jazz saxophonist, P.J. Perry, to emerging (at the time) authors and playwrights such as Brad Fraser. Dancers to film makers, musicians to painters; artists from all disciplines passed through Arts Alberta. In the process, they created a record and a legacy of thoughts, ideas, opinions and insights reflecting Alberta and Canada's arts and cultural milieu during the 1980s and early 1990s. Digitizing and cataloguing these materials online has now made the program accessible to current and future generations of Albertans and Canadians.
