We had a long weekend up here in Canada so I took full advantage of the chance to get the heck outta the city and catch up with some friends in middle-of-nowhere, Ontario. The weather was pretty beautiful for the most part, and I got to hang out with a lot of nice folks and cute animals — including the awesome pup pictured above. I also got to pet a domestic raccoon, almost hit a wild turkey with our car, and got plenty of mosquito bites. Ahhh, rural living!
IMPORTANT: I am on vacation from May 25th – June 4th, so there will be no charts or tracking during those dates. And hey, tell me your favourite things to do in Barcelona! I will be hitting up Primavera as well so if anyone from your station is gonna be there, let me know so I can say hi.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
We’re really psyched to be partnering up with the rad folks at the Montreal Anarchist Bookfair this coming weekend for the Autonomous Media Room, a space to sharpen your DIY media skills in a whole range of areas. We’re offering workshops on street reporting, encryption & hacking, building transmitters, and more! Plus, we’ll be doing a live remote broadcast from the bookfair from 2:00-4:00pm so if you’re around be sure to check it out and see firsthand how the CKUT crew makes kickass radio.
