SEPTEMBER IS POP MONTREAL SESSIONS TUESDAY 3 - 5PM

Hosted by various members of the POP Montreal staff, the POP Montreal radio sessions will focus prominently on bands and artists playing or participating in the festival. Music from International and big-name performers will be played alongside music from emerging Montreal musicians.

The sessions will feature on-air interviews, live performances, artist + showcase profiles, POP picks and reviews from the presenters.

GENDRON & CHAPUT -- IF YOU GOT EARS

If You Got Ears for the month of September brings you two special hosts. Myriam Gendron is a book dealer and musician. Benoît Chaput is a publisher and poet.

Although Myriam’s work at the bookstore won’t allow her to be in the studio, her and Benoît will bring listeners a show that focuses on the contemporary cross-pollination of poetry and folk music in a very broad sense.

Tune is Wednesday 12-2pm or ckut.ca — Missed an episode? CKUT has you covered. Check out the archives for shows 3 months back…
