CKCC 100.7 The Raven is Vancouver Island's only Country Music station, broadcasting from the Homalco Village in Campbell River & operated by the Aupe Cultural Enhancement Society.
We are the only independent, locally-owned station in our listener area with a focus on supporting our amazing communities through quality, local programming.
All net proceeds go back into community through cultural projects and programs with a focus on youth to build capacity through training, mentorship and cultural healing. ACES also holds three HD licenses which will be launched online in the future.
The Raven features new country hits, as well as a mix of contemporary and classic country music. In addition, the station is proud to participate in éy7á7juuthem (Ayajuthem) Indigenous language preservation and growth through industry-leading programs such as Keeping Our Word. Did you know that the Ayajuthem word for "raven" is Poho?
