The Underground Sounds Mixtape (June 3 2013 episode) has arrived, and the track list is below.
Your local music show is happy to announce weekly MIXTAPES from our episode playlists. They will be an hour long, and featuring non-stop-Montréal-music. Also, interview excerpts of Josh from Socalled and Dimitrios from Parce Ave Tonight are now online. See you next week!
Have you dropped by CampusMixtapes.org yet? Made a mix? You should! There’s lots of cool stuff up there right now, including this piece called A Letter to Kiss by our own Louise Burns, and which originally aired on our If You Got Ears radio show a few years ago. This mix is more of a radio-ready letter punctuated with music to help fully reveal the contents of the 12 page note to the rock band Kiss within!
Tomorrow’s Aack! will be substitute-hosted by Amber who will be sitting in for the fabulous, longtime host Lorrie. Along with the usual awesome free form-ness of the show, selections will be made from the mixes up on Campus Mixtapes as well as CKUT trax up on the Free Music Archive. Tune in tomorrow from 3-5pm and check it all out.
