CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: May 12, 2015

unnamed

Hi friends,

We are riding high on a celebratory wave after CKUT took a triple-header win in local publication Cult Montreal’s annual city-wide Best Of poll: best station, best show, and best host. Montreal is truly a great creative environment, and it feels so good to make kickass risk-taking radio and have it embraced by the community. Thanks to all who have shown us support and who keep us inspired to keep coaxing brave sounds out over the airwaves.

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
You guys know how much we love dogs at CKUT, right? Well, we were extra excited to have local man-about-town Socalled visit the studio last week along with his canine sidekick, Poopsie. They joined hip hop whiz The Narcicyst in the studio during If You Got Ears (which airs every Wednesday, 12-2pm) and it was a pretty memorable time. In case you missed it, hear the episode on our archives — and don’t forget to dig the remainder of Narcy’s CKUT residency, every Wednesday in May.
