If you listened in today from 12-2pm, you would have heard the soothing sounds of Benoit Chaput (with the behind the scenes help from Myriam Gendron) streaming from our studios. The pair delivered a myriad of folk and underground music, perfect for a cloudy and calm afternoon. Unfortunately, it was their last day hosting If You Got Ears here at CKUT, but you can always catch the previous episodes from this month on our archives.
Next month’s residency is with Jen Reimer and Max Stein, who will be dedicating their residency to incorporating many different musical textures with the sounds of the city~~
Yesterday was (sadly) Pop Montreal’s last day of their Montreal Sessions residency here at CKUT, and it was another reminder that they totally killed the game this month. The show started off with some quality indie and electronic music, and at the end of the first hour featured a live performance from Johnny de Courcey. With numerous musical guests featuring Forever, Vesuvio, Year of Glad, Noko, MagicPerm, Heartstreets, Ohara and more, there was an overload of talent in our studios over the past few weeks that was hard to keep up with. All episodes are available on our archives for any unfortunate souls who missed them, and of course anyone that wants to re-listen to the hilarious banter.
Next month we’ve got Yellow Noise, a Canadian media platform of Asian self-representation focusing on intersectionality and solidarity with other marginalized groups, taking the reigns. Tune in on Tuesdays, 3-5pm to catch the show~~
I’m gonna keep this short today since we have a zillion things going on, including an upcoming AGM, funding drive, and student fee levy referendum. Fall is the busy season! Time for more coffee…
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
CKUT is thrilled to be teaming up with the Student Society of McGill University to present a live federal election debate tomorrow at 5pm. It’s happening on campus and is open to the public, and we’ll be broadcasting remotely from the event from 5-6pm. We highly encourage people to tune in, or better yet — join us there in person and have your voice be a part of the discussion. Check out the full details here: http://ckut.ca/en/node/1624
