CKUT’s music programming emphasizes the uncommon, the new, and the daring. We have a variety of specialized music programs as well as open format programs that span many musical genres. DJs make their own musical selections, without the aid of a playlist, choosing from recordings sent to CKUT by artists and record companies around the world as well as from their own private collections.
CKUT is mandated to explore all kinds of musics and believes that artists often act as the emotional catharsis of our society and as such have a right to be heard. CKUT is not mandated to play what is known as TOP 40 music. Our objectives are to grant airtime to those who are not adequately served by the mainstream media – to provide a “voice for the voiceless” in addressing issues of concern in specific communities and to provide facilities and training through which members of the Montreal community and interested students may gain knowledge of and experience with radio programming, broadcasting and management.
