Cabin Radio is LIVE! Here’s how to listen

Last modified: March 5, 2018 at 12:30pm

It’s finally here. Cabin Radio’s live stream has launched! Click here to listen live.

Our online launch on Monday is phase one of a much bigger plan. We have a phone app in development and we are working towards our long-term goal of FM licences and partnerships covering Yellowknife and a range of NWT communities. This is just the first step and we can’t wait to have you come on the journey with us.

There’s a full Q&A here but if you just want quick answers, here are some of the most important details:


What’s the daily schedule like?

7am-9am: Mornings at the Cabin with Jesse Wheeler, Ollie Williams, and guests

The Wheel wakes you up with great music, entertainment, and everything you need to know for the rest of your day across the North – with regular newscasts from Ollie and a range of live guests.

9am-12pm: Ollie Williams

Ollie keeps you company through the working morning with a music-heavy three hours of fun, plus local updates and interviews. We’ll also bring you regular specials featuring people driving change in our territory: politicians, leaders, and fresh voices come together to tackle the biggest issues we’re facing.

12pm-4pm: Shannon Moore


Shannon takes you through lunch and your afternoon with more music, playing great tracks you haven’t heard for ages, old favourites, and the best in new music.

Saturdays, 8am-12pm: Kevin MacDonald

One of Yellowknife’s most experienced and uplifting broadcasters knows exactly how to get your weekend off to the best possible start.

The remainder of our schedule is to be announced, including an exciting line-up of weeknight specialist shows.


How do I listen?

Come to this website, click the big Live icon in our menu. Simple as that.

If you’re an iOS user and you have trouble using our live link, our apologies – that’s a known issue between the latest iOS operating system and our Icecast music streaming software. If you look beneath the main live player, you’ll see a backup link you can try. Please send us your feedback if you have any trouble tuning in.

Can I still get involved?

Yes! You definitely can and we’d love to have you on board. Check out this page.

What’s different about you?

We are a northern owned and operated independent commercial radio station, dedicated to supporting the communities we serve while playing you the best, ever-changing, music mix.

We’re committed to launching training and development programs for northern youth as a central pillar of our work in the NWT. We’re also working with a range of community broadcasters in Yellowknife and beyond to get new, interesting, unique shows on the air, full of local voices.

Can I find out more about advertising with you?

Of course. Email to let us know you’re interested and we’ll be right back in touch. You can advertise on our live stream, in our podcasts, on our website, and in our social media videos. We have a great range of options to help you reach just the right people.

Really important: We’ve tried to set up our ads so small businesses aren’t priced out. We know radio advertising has been expensive in the NWT for some time – we’re a small, northern business too, and we want to help make it easier. If you’ve never considered radio advertising before because of the cost or because it seemed daunting, drop us an email. We’ll do our best to pleasantly surprise you.
