On the air since the spring of the new millenium, CHUO 89.1 FM's "What The...?" is the thorn in the side of many a listener.

The purpose of the show is to expose listeners to artists or material they wouldn't otherwise discover. This often includes features on specific artists, but a number of offbeat programmes weave their way in on a regular basis (including the traditional summertime Christmas show, "Season's Cretins").

Each show typically revolves around one theme or artist, but from week to week the content varies considerably. Hence why we are the only "radio with multiple personalities".

It can currently be heard on Mondays from 9:00pm to 10:00pm (eastern time) via the internet at www.chuo.fm or on the radio at 89.1FM (in the Ottawa, Ontario area).
