About Us

Music is life. Just like the force, it surrounds us, it penetrates us, and it binds us all together. Music is is why the Full Time Groove exists. Ever since 2010 we have strived to provide something a little different on the radio spectrum at CHUO. But, even before that we were broadcasters on CKCU and CKDJ doing our own projects. We teamed up to create something even larger. By bringing together an education in radio broadcasting and experience in entertainment, we endeavor to create something special and unique to bring to the city.
Always learning and evolving, we hope to nurture the artistic greatness in this city and our country.
