CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: January 6, 2015

33fd1700-8ac7-43f8-9ec8-64355b294f95_zps23ce96e2

Hello friends,

Hope you all had a nice holiday break! I went back to dreamy small-town BC to visit my parents and had a pretty relaxing time full of delicious food, board games, and good books. Now it’s back to the grind in Montreal where the temperatures have dipped to -20 Celsius and the whole city is covered in several inches of solid ice… Yeowza! If only I could find a way to bring that temperate western climate with me on these cross-country journeys…

Now that it’s 2015 and all, I am making some small changes to our weekly charts. First, I have started numbering entries (‘cuz that probably helps all of you chart-readers, right?). Secondly, I am hoping to start including some highlights of CKUT programming & events in each week’s charts so you’ll know where to direct your ears for prime listening. Finally, I’m starting to indicate local releases with an asterix to give you further proof of how awesome Montreal’s music is. If there’s anything else you wanna see in our charts, lemme know — feedback is always welcome!

Jazz and loud charts return next week. Till then…
