CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: January 31, 2017

unnamed

Hi friends,
Not sure what to say in this week’s charts… it’s a scary world out there. I’m gonna take a page out of the CJLOmar book and revert to a cute animal photo here because lord knows we need it right now.

Please note that I will be out of town from Wednesday through Friday this week, so email me if you have any tracking inquires and I’ll field them soon as I’m back in the office.

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: April 12, 2016

unnamed

Hello radio,

These charts come to you from a haze of cold meds as I attempt to fight the end-of-semester bug that’s decimating campus right now. Coughs & sniffles aside, I’ve had a pretty nice week hanging with a former CKUT intern who’s visiting all the way from Germany and joining her in the usual sightseeing/record-shopping/etc that one does while vacationing in Montreal. How’s yr week going?

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Okay, so this feels kinda like cheating, but rather than plug our programming or events this week we wanna encourage you to head over to Cult Mtl’s website and show a little love to CKUT in their annual Best of Montreal poll. We’ve hung onto the Best Radio Station and Best Radio Show titles for many a year now, but that doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels and expect the votes to roll in on their own. On the contrary: this is where you come in! If you love high-quality freeform, DIY, boundary-pushing radio then how ‘bout you let the good people at Cult know? With our finger on the musical pulse everywhere from Montreal’s underground lofts to Primavera Sound, not to mention our award-winning news & cultural programming, we hope we’ve given you enough in the past year to merit a vote or two in favour of the ol’ CKUT. Make it happen, y’all!

Hi folks,

It’s been a super busy week here in Montreal, including an early-morning visit to the vet to get foster kitty spayed yesterday morning — she still spends most of her time hiding under the bed but she’s slowly warming up to domestic life. Ain’t she cute?

PLEASE NOTE that I will be out of the office from February 24th till the 27th. If you have tracking inquires, please hit me up by email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!

Perhaps this is cheating, but I’m just gonna take this space to encourage folks to listen to the 14th annual Homelessness Marathon tonight (!) from 5pm – 7am EST. I know I plugged this last week, but it’s a pretty essential and inspiring broadcast and certainly worthy of two weeks of promo via this lil chart blast. Unfamiliar with the marathon, or want to learn more? Check out our website for the full details!

Hi folks,
Welp, after a pretty mild January we finally got slammed with some legit winter weather: pipes froze here at CKUT, and it only just stopped snowing like crazy outside. Spurred on by the brutally cold weather, I took in a foster cat this weekend because the alleys of Montreal at -40 Celsius are no place for a kitten to be wandering around… Hopefully she’ll emerge from her hiding spot under the bed by next week so I can include a cat photo in the chart email.

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
CKUT is honoured to be teaming up with CIVL in Abbotsford, BC and several other stations across Canada for the 14th annual Homelessness Marathon. As a way to raise awareness of housing issues and their effect on communities, we’ll be broadcasting content that aims to give voice to those who are directly impacted by homelessness. Listeners can stream it live from 5pm – 7am via the CKUT website or, better yet, those in Montreal can join us at the Native Friendship Centre (2001 St Laurent) for a free community dinner at 6pm. CKUT will be producing live content from the NFC, hosted by Native Solidarity News and Nipivut. If you miss it live, grab the audio on our web archives.
