Hey friends,

Had a pretty nice weekend that included getting to hear great sets from some visiting musician-pals (hi there Forest Management & Fire Moss) and lots of general catching up and hanging out. I sadly missed our current chart-topper Matana Roberts play on Saturday night because I was battling the Death Cough, but I heard it was terrific. Don’t wimp out like me if she plays your town!


CKUT is proud to announce the launch of our residency at Montreal’s freshly-minted Maison Sociale every Thursday from 7-8pm. This place is part bar, part cafe, part hang-out zone and to top it all off they’ve got live DJs spinning tunes around the clock in specified timeslots, radio-style. Stop by on Thursday evenings to hear a different CKUT programmer behind the decks each week, soundtracking the start to your weekend — cuz Thursdays are the new Fridays, right? Right.

Art Not Love hosts The Montreal Sessions (#4)

For their fourth instalment, Art Not Love is spending today’s episode speaking with their artists and friends,  exploring deeper dimensions of what goes into their practice and approach. In the first hour, tune in for an interview and performance with L.A. Foster, a powerful yet soulful local force, one you may recognize from CKUT’s Venus collective. For the latter half of the program, Toronto-based Dirty Organs is in the 514 to unveil a live set over the radio waves. Be sure to check out what Art Not Love is keeping busy with when not revelling in radio.
