Legend of Mythic Proportions
Today is the first day of August and the first day of the week; what does it all mean? In the music office, we started the day listening to Rick Wakeman’s The Myths and Legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table to properly herald the week ahead.
The week positively brims with the promise of exciting music: today on New Shit (3-5pm) we’ll be listening to the CKUT daycampers DJ new music in the first hour and in the second hour we’ll spend time listening to the psychfolk sounds of Bobb Trimble.
Tonight on Underground Sounds: The Barr Brothers will be in for an interview and live acoustic performance. Later in the show we’ll be listening to two interviews that were conducted at Osheaga, one with local rockers Malajube and Windsor’s own City and Colour.
Also, exciting news about the August edition of the Montreal Sessions will be announced here soonsoonsoon!
As always, check out our station grid for a full list of CKUT programming and our music dept. Twitter for up-to-the-moment babble.
Pulling the sword from the stone,
LP repair for records that have received alot of heavy petting/handling!
The music office is a busy place this summer: we have four rad and music-lovin’ interns (Andrew, Lili, Karen & Norma) alongside AJ and myself and the usual slew of volunteer music programmers. This week we’re working on the usual (processing all the music we receive) along with repairing LPs in our music library.

WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK: we’re listening to our copies of Bobb Trimble‘s first two LPs Iron Curtain Innocence (1980) and Harvest of Dreams (1982) cuz of this article on FreeMusicArchive.org about his lost album that’s recently been found. Bobb Trimble is an underground psych-folk cult figure who produced work mainly in the 80s. He’s taken to the stage again, so do read the article, listen to the lost sounds and visit his website.
TUNE IN: Today is the last show of the July edition of the Montreal Sessions. Tune into the radio program today between 3-5pm for some sound art, y’all. Missed the wonderful Magic Sound Mountain performances this past Saturday? We’ll be broadcasting some of those pieces on the Monday afternoon Radio is Dead program among other shows so do keep an ear open for that in the next coupla weeks.
GET INVOLVED: CKUT is hiring a Homelessness Marathon Outreach and Production Coordinator. For more details, do visit ckut.ca.
