Website problems will continue

Hi there. We continue to experience problems with the tools that we use to update the show's webpage. In fact, the problems have become so persistent we will no longer be updating this page.

There are, however, other ways to access audio items from the program.

You can follow the show page on Facebook. Just go to the link below:

https://www.facebook.com/CBCAirplay

We have also started to upload audio directly to Soundcloud. You can find the stream here:

We hope that helps. Sorry for any inconvenience.

We should also tell you that more changes will be coming to the way you can access CBC Yukon on line. We'll keep you posted.

Apologies...

Tara here...

I'm still having trouble posting to the webpage, which is why much of the audio over the past few weeks is missing. The software seems to not like me very much.

I'll keep trying. I've also got our best computer kitty working on it.

Thanks for your patience!
