What a weekend – longtime CKUT bffs Steve Jr. rolled into town all the way from New York to play a very special BBQ we organized on Saturday alongside locals Terrified Michael F. (pictured above) and J. Deady. There was amazing food, great sounds, and the cops didn’t fine us over noise in the end. Everybody wins!
An important note for the next few weeks – I will be on vacation for most of August and only checking emails sporadically, so please reach out to our wonderful librarianBejal for any music department stuff or contact email@example.com for general station inquires. There won’t be any charts or tracking while I’m gone, but our trusty team of music volunteers will be holding it down and making sure new music gets into circulation.
Hope you all enjoy this last month of summer and looking forward to catching up in September.
:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
In a last-minute schedule switcheroo, local man about town Alex Pelchat (*Shining Wizard*, Gens Chrétiens, drøm før du dør) is hopping into the studio to host the August edition of the Montreal Sessions. In classic Pelchat style, he whipped together a killer series of live performances to treat yr ears every Tuesday from 3-5pm. Tune in today to catch Providence, RI heavyweights Mother Tongue rip it up live in the studio, and get a taste of what else is in store this month on the CKUT website. Miss it live? Not to worry – grab the archived audio right here and save that baby forever.
