CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: April 12, 2016

unnamed

Hello radio,

These charts come to you from a haze of cold meds as I attempt to fight the end-of-semester bug that’s decimating campus right now. Coughs & sniffles aside, I’ve had a pretty nice week hanging with a former CKUT intern who’s visiting all the way from Germany and joining her in the usual sightseeing/record-shopping/etc that one does while vacationing in Montreal. How’s yr week going?

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Okay, so this feels kinda like cheating, but rather than plug our programming or events this week we wanna encourage you to head over to Cult Mtl’s website and show a little love to CKUT in their annual Best of Montreal poll. We’ve hung onto the Best Radio Station and Best Radio Show titles for many a year now, but that doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels and expect the votes to roll in on their own. On the contrary: this is where you come in! If you love high-quality freeform, DIY, boundary-pushing radio then how ‘bout you let the good people at Cult know? With our finger on the musical pulse everywhere from Montreal’s underground lofts to Primavera Sound, not to mention our award-winning news & cultural programming, we hope we’ve given you enough in the past year to merit a vote or two in favour of the ol’ CKUT. Make it happen, y’all!
