CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: March 21, 2017

unnamed

Hi friends,
Well, we survived last week’s crazy winter storm… most things around Montreal closed down for the day (a rarity in this land of perpetual winter) but it was business as usual here at CKUT, because we are hardcore like that. We did, however, spend a good chunk of the afternoon sliding down the mountain of snow that had accumulated in the station’s backyard…  gotta make the most of those blizzard conditions while they last, right?

CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: February 14, 2017

Hi folks,
We got a ton of snow over the weekend and this dirty but cheerful snowman magically emerged in our backyard overnight. Not sure whether he’s the work of some creative overnight programmers or roving undergrads, but either way he made the whole crew smile this morning. We’re forecast for even more snow tonight so we’ll how our new buddy is looking tomorrow

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
The legendary Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry stopped by CKUT for a surprise visit on Fridayand kicked it in the studio with our crew during the perennially-awesome Butcher T’sNoon Time Cuts, and we’re still kinda reeling from the experience. Dig that photo of him with Butcher T above — dude is quite the character! Of course, he fit right in with our wild posse here at the ol’ 90.3. Hit up the archives to download the full show or watch interview footage on the CKUT youtube channel.
