Passovah is hosting its final Montreal Sessions today on CKUT 3-5pm.
Local promoter Noah Bick will be airing the best bands from Passovah’s archives, like How Sad, SUUNS, Sunset Rubdown and Wake Island.

Wanna know what happens behind the scenes in the CKUT music department? Check out this photo of our music librarian Tim trying to extract a piece of confetti from a cassette tape. It’s the real deal, folks.
There will be no charts next week as I am going out to Victoria BC for this year’s national campus/community radio conference at CFUV. If you’ll be there too, let me know so we can meet up and nerd out about radio together.
