Hi friends,

Last chart of 2014! Feels pretty good to look back at all the awesome things that happened in the past year, and dream about what is to come when the new calendar kicks in. I am looking forward to digging my way out of all the snow currently blanketing Montreal and heading west to visit my parents in Anarchist Mountain, BC (it’s a real place – trust Wikipedia if you don’t trust me). CKUT will continue to offer kickass live programming over the winter break, and I’ll be back in the office as of January 5th for all of your music department needs.

As an extra special treat, we have compiled a big list of the top 100 albums played on CKUT over the past year… keep an eye out for that over the next couple days, it’s gonna be a doozy.

Happy holidays from all at CKUT!
