Ladies First is a live radio show airing weekly on CHUO 89.1 FM from 5-6 p.m. on Thursdays—now on its fifth year on the air! Ladies First celebrates the sounds of women in music and the arts from around the world

Lina Asfour curates her playlist with care, developing weekly themes like “13 slices of now”, “I can’t stand the rain” or “snowball of new releases”. Listening to Ladies First can be a journey of discovery or a nostalgic ride back to teen land. Each week I am excited to hear what Lina has cooked up for us.

Oh yeah, did I mention she was a pastry chef in a past life? With episode titles like “Burn your bikini” there is no question that Lina is a self-proclaimed feminist. When she is not digging deep into music, Lina can be found cycling all over the Gatineau Hills or searching for high resolution images of nature on her big camera. Lina is driven, creative and a caring community builder—tune in soon to find out what she has in store for you next!

Thursdays 5:00 – 6:00 p.m.
