Deep Roots is a Canadian radio program focusing on folk and roots music. The program, hosted by Tom Power, airs on CBC Radio 2 and normally originates from CBN-FM St. John's.

Power, who began the program while still attending Memorial University, is believed to be the youngest regular host of a CBC Radio program since Peter Jennings's tenure as host of Peter's People in 1947 (at the age of nine).[1]

Deep Roots currently airs on CBC Radio 2 throughout Canada on Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. (6:00 AT, 6:30 NT) and Sundays at 5:00 p.m. (5:30 NT). It also airs on the Sirius feed of CBC Radio One (channel 137) Sundays at 7:00 p.m. ET and early Monday mornings at 3:00 a.m. ET.

As well, an abbreviated localized version of the program airs Fridays at 3:30 p.m. NT on Radio One stations in Newfoundland and Labrador. This is because the extended Friday portion of Q is preempted by the local version of Radio Noon at 12:00 NT, but would be out of place if rebroadcast later in the day, as is done for most Radio One programs airing in the 11:30 a.m. (local) timeslot.
