Ottawa Radio Stations

I must confess that when it comes to Ottawa radio stations, I am a channel surfer! When I get in my car, I have about ten stations that are pre-set on my sound system and I spend the drive flipping through stations “surfing” for something that catches my fancy. My extremely diverse musical tastes depend largely on my mood and also on what happens to be playing.

Luckily, Ottawa radio stations cover a huge range of music from rock, pop, country, Top 40, classical, jazz, Christian, francophone, ethnic music, news and everything in between! It’s pretty much guaranteed that one of the radio stations will be playing something you want to hear. And if not… there’s always MP3’s!!

Most of the major radio stations in Ottawa also have their own websites and are constantly running awesome radio contests to win everything from merchandise to concert tickets! While I was at Ottawa University, one of my lucky friends won tickets from a local radio station to go see his favourite band, KISS, in Montreal. Since I happened to be there when he won, I got to go see them too, and it’s an experience I will never forget. We had an awesome time and I think it took three whole days for my hearing to recover… (I LOVE Ottawa radio stations!!!)

If I omitted an Ottawa/Gatineau radio station in error, or you have a new one to add, or you have a great story you’d like to share about one of our Ottawa radio stations, please feel free to contact me!
