Off the Hour / Dec 10, 5-6pm / Chomsky on South Africa and Mandela, Hassan Diab, and Minister Malavoy's office occupied12/10/2013
Amandla is hosting a special extended broadcast this Wednesday, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., to mark the passing of Nelson Mandela. The studio door and phone will be open to a wonderful crowd of former anti-apartheid activists from Montreal and across Canada who played an integral role in the struggle. They will share their reflections on Mandela, both critical and admiring. Please join us for what is sure to be a fascinating evening!
The crew from Jeunesse Cosmique taking ears into new territories of sonic exploration – for those fond of wild and weird sounds, this is the show for you!
With plenty of unreleased live recordings, in-studio jams, and more goodies, these folks will be diving straight into the thriving realm of Montreal’s underground.
Check out this festive little sampler for a sneak peek of what’s in store.
You’ve trolled the site. You’ve picked up the paper and now you get to listen to it on the radio. Cult Montreal hosts Montreal Sessions for the festive month of December. The Cult Crew will cover music, city politics, street art, film and gab about the local restaurant scene - basically the site for your ears. Tune in each Tuesday in December between 3 - 5pm or catch it on the archives.
Just because it’s November doesn’t mean we’re not thinking of Summer. This week on Montreal Sound Ark, Louis let us in on the origins of Tam Tams.
Also, he pays tribute to the late Mad Dog Vachon with a rare 45 pulled out his own personal archive.
