CKUT in Good Company

wefunk

It may come as no surprise to you all that we at CKUT really love radio. Spoken, weird, musical or otherwise, we’re big fans of stuff that comes from a stereo and a dial. That spirit might have changed a bit with the whole internet thing, but it’s also given us the opportunity to hear shows from programmers around the world.

Lexis over at Music is My Sanctuary is definitely a proponent of this kind of intercontinental radio listening, and he’s put CKUT’s WeFunk andThe Goods in the company of shows like Gilles Peterson Worldwide and Beats in Space. Needless to say, we’re in good company.

Check the post here

and check out those shows if ya didn’t know!

WeFunk – CKUT on Fridays 24:00 – 2:00AM
The Goods – CKUT on Sundays 14:00 – 16:00

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS: March 19, 2013

mardi spaghetti

Hey friends,

Charts are hitting you late because my day was mostly spent teching a super rad remote broadcast of the excellent Mardi Spaghetti series’ fifth anniversary show — so many amazing local musicians participating in a 12-hour free improv marathon, whewwww. If you dig wild jazz and avant-garde sounds, you owe it to yrself to check things out.

Quick note for those in Kingston and Toronto, I’ll be in your cities over the weekend playing a couple gigs — get in touch if you’ll be around!

This long day plus hauling gear through an intense snowstorm has done me in for now..
A bientot till next week,
joni
