Here’s a big ol’ chart representing our past two weeks of freeform airplay. I had a great time out in Halifax for the almighty OBEY Convention (seriously, you should go, it’s sooooo good) then took a little stay-cation to hang with visiting family members. I came back to a very full inbox and plenty of happenings around the station — it might take me another day or two to catch up on stuff, so please be patient w/ my tardy emails.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
Suoni Per Il Popolo has begun! This long-running festival brings everything from free jazz to punk to experimental noise to the stages of our fair city, and we’re abuzz trying to cover as much of it as we can. To get a taste of what’s up, yr best bet is to catch the Montreal Sessions every Tuesday in June from 3-5pm — it’s hosted by the Suoni masterminds themselves, so consider it a true inside scoop on the best of the fest. Today is gonna be extra special since we’re ditching the studio to broadcast live from Casa del Popolo, and the show is jam packed with live performances, interviews, and much more. Tune in or swing by Casa this afternoon to say hi and hang with the CKUT/Suoni crew in person, and catch the rest of the series over the next few weeks for all the weird & wonderful sounds yr ears can handle.
