CJSR’s mission is to “enlighten and entertain our audience through high quality and diverse programming that constantly challenges the status quo.”

Our programming provides a voice for marginalized communities and perspectives from across Edmonton, a home for underground music, and a place to push boundaries in terrestrial radio.

Nothing on CJSR is like you’ll hear anywhere else: our programming runs the gamut from environmental news, to heavy metal, to underground electronica, to LGBTQ news, to organ music, to the latest from Eritrea. And everything else, too.
