Fuse is a Canadian radio program, which airs on CBC Radio One and on CBC Radio 3's satellite radio channel. From March 25, 2007 to August 2008[citation needed], the program was also aired on CBC Radio 2, becoming the only program which has aired on all three networks. Each week, the program pairs two (and occasionally three or more) Canadian musicians for an hour-long concert in which the artists collaborate on a mix of material by all of the involved artists as well as cover songs.

In fall 2008, Fuse concerts will also begin airing on bold.

History[edit]

Fuse first aired in 2005 as a summer program by the producers of Bandwidth, the network's regional arts and culture program in Ontario. It aired following Vinyl Tap, taking over the final hour of Finkleman's 45s' timeslot.

The show completed its original run in October 2005, and was replaced by the weekend edition of National Playlist. After National Playlist was cancelled, Fuse rejoined the CBC schedule in the spring of 2006.

The program's original host, Amanda Putz moved with her husband to Hong Kong in the fall of 2006. She was replaced by former Ontario Today host Alan Neal in November of that year. Putz returned to the program in September 2007.
