June 10, 2013: CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS

Quebec City

Hi friends,

You’re getting these charts a day early since I won’t be in the office tomorrow – I’ve been taking some time off to hang with my parents, who made a stop in Montreal in the middle of an enviously long roadtrip they embarked on a while back. We spent the weekend camping near Quebec City, exploring the old town and the rural farmland of the St. Lawrence. Pretty dreamy.

Back on the local front, Suoni Per Il Popolo is in full swing so there’s even more great music than usual seeping into the ears of Montrealers; I was lucky enough to catch Lee Ranaldo & Steve Shelley a few days ago and Peter Brotzmann plays here ce soir. Later this week, we will be broadcasting live from the Ratchet Orchestra show (Wednesday 20-22h EST) and the French-American Peace Ensemble (Thursday 21-23h) so tune in if you want to experience some of the audio magic live via the CKUT airwaves.

Loud chart returns next week.

April 2, 2013 – CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS

total eclipse concert series

Hey friends,

Back in action after a long weekend spent prepping for spring: I planted a whole bunch of vegetable seeds and tuned up my bike and then BAM — mother nature pulled a fast one and hit us with some ugly sub-zero temperatures. C’est la vie, Montreal. Here in the music department we are busy working on our upcoming Total Eclipse Concert Series, which will go down next weekend with three nights of jams all over the city curated by some of our superstar programmers. Trust us, these parties are not to be missed. Stay tuned for the full lowdown in next week’s charts, and in the meantime get a sneak peek of what’s in store: https://www.facebook.com/events/468353556570646/?notif_t=plan_user_joined

till next week,
