CHMA 106.9 FM is owned and operated by the members of Attic Broadcasting Co. Ltd., a non-profit organization with its offices on the campus of Mount Allison University. We provide our members with an opportunity to create innovative, educational and alternative community-based programming.

Our programming schedule includes open format and specialty music shows, spoken word programs on a variety of topics as well as audio art programming that explores the limits of this thing we call radio.

Your membership gives you an opportunity to get involved at any level. And if this is your first time in radio, don’t worry. Most of our members come to us with no experience in broadcasting.

We provide training for anyone interested in working behind the scenes and for anyone wanting to be involved in our live programming.

We’re located on the campus of Mount Allison University, on the third floor of the Wallace McCain Student Centre at 62 York Street in Sackville, New Brunswick.

If you are interested in independent media and the power of community radio, now is the time to get involved.
