The Montreal Sessions with Pop Montreal: 22nd September 2015

ss

Yesterday we had Pop Montreal back in our studios for The Montreal Sessions, with Roxanne Lemieux and Patric Gregoire driving the show. For those that are (somehow) unfamiliar, Pop Montreal is an annual music festival that features more the 400 artists from all around the globe and attracts more than 50 000 party people every year. We got lucky and managed to charm them into hosting The Montreal Sessions this month, during which they’ve delivered exceptional talent. Music acts Forever and Vesuvio Solo were in the house yesterday with some wicked performances, which you can catch on our archives.

Keep it locked for next weeks final episode from Pop MTL, airing on Tuesday from 3-5pm~~

Kelly and spontaneous songs about pooping from Commander Clark, Pop Montreal’s Daniel Seligman brought us an episode with great tunes and informative talks about this years festival. If you liked what you heard, make sure to tune in today from 3-5pm to catch more folks from Pop MTL and a live performance from Heartstreets, who are a local electronic/hip-hop/R&B duo.

popmscrew

This month we’re lucky enough to have Pop Montreal hosting The Montreal Sessions here at CKUT! If you managed to catch yesterday’s episode, you were in for a ride. The session was hosted by Pop Montreal’s Daniel Seligman, along with his daughter Jojo. We had a full studio which included the esteemed musician (as well as author) Ohara, and Michael Felber from Urockaoke! Nantha Kumar also made a guest appearance on the show to talk about the pop-up restos that Pop Montreal are organizing this year. And as if three guests wasn’t enough, Commander Clark made a special appearance during hour two of the show to serve up some hilarious impromptu music. Full of good music, giggles, and a legendary performance of “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly, this is one episode you gotta hear.

Catch it on our archives, and stay tuned for next week~~

These guys did one hell of a job hosting one of our most successful shows, The Montreal Sessions, the archives of which are definitely worth perusing. Don’t forget to tune in next Tuesday from 3-5pm for Pop Montreal to take the reigns~~

It still remains impossible to describe exactly what Egg Paper Factory play on The Montreal Sessions, because their musical choices span so very much. From relatively unknown experimental artists to Mariah Carey, these guys will always deliver something incredibly fun to listen to. Today we started off with some laid back country, which slowly evolved to some wicked alternative and electronic releases. Truly a quality episode. The only way to fully get the experience is to listen for yourself, which you can do by looking at our archives, or tune in on Tuesdays 3-5pm.

Keep it locked to CKUT, folks~~
