:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
It’s September and Pop Montreal is right around the corner, and to celebrate another year of insanely awesome programming we’ve invited the Pop crew into our studio to dish on the highlights of this year’s fest. Tune in every Tuesday in September from 3-5pm for a whole slew of interviews, performances, live radio karaoke, and much more. My head is spinning just thinking about it, seriously. Don’t believe me? Take it from Jojo.

This month we’re lucky enough to have Pop Montreal hosting The Montreal Sessions here at CKUT! If you managed to catch yesterday’s episode, you were in for a ride. The session was hosted by Pop Montreal’s Daniel Seligman, along with his daughter Jojo. We had a full studio which included the esteemed musician (as well as author) Ohara, and Michael Felber from Urockaoke! Nantha Kumar also made a guest appearance on the show to talk about the pop-up restos that Pop Montreal are organizing this year. And as if three guests wasn’t enough, Commander Clark made a special appearance during hour two of the show to serve up some hilarious impromptu music. Full of good music, giggles, and a legendary performance of “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly, this is one episode you gotta hear.
Catch it on our archives, and stay tuned for next week~~
