Sorry these are coming in a day late! I got the cold that’s currently sweeping Montreal, and it knocked me out of commission yesterday. Cough and sniffles aside, I had a wicked time at CMJ last week — it was so great hanging with all you lovely radio peeps. Saw lots of familiar faces and met some amazing new people too. Y’all rule!
Lastly, our annual funding drive starts tomorrow (!) so I won’t be in the office much next week for tracking. I’m also not making any promises about charts — we have a ton of events going down next week, so if they don’t get compiled then just sit tight and wait for a big ol’ mega chart the following week.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Funding Drive is upon us! We’ve got tons of rad programming lined up to hustle some dollars while giving ears the royal treatment they’re used to from the ol’ CKUT. Perennial favourite Venus Radioke is back in full force, we’ve got a killer kickoff party going down Friday night, and we’ll be broadcasting live from a whole bunch of different spaces over the next week and a half. See the full list here, and take our personal inside tip to swing by Casa del Popolo for a free gig on Monday afternoon featuring Old Haunt, YlangYlang, and more — we’ll be hosting the music department’s show, New Shit, live on location from 3-5pm and it would be swell to see your pretty face there. Come hang out and share some good fundraising vibes with us!
