The Goods Sundays 2pm - 4pm is celebrating their 13th Anniversary. The Goods explores black music in all its forms. It’s a radio show that will both educate and make you bop your head. The Goods also know how to throw down a party, as they have been doing so at their monthy nights at Sala Rossa. For the Lucky #13 edition they are inviting CKUT’s WEFUNK Fridays midnight - 2am to join them on the ones and twos at Sala Rossa Saturday Aug 29th. Funk Soul Jazz Hip Hop, Afro, Latin, and Broken Boogie.
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 and showcase profiles and POP picks and reviews from the presenters.
CKUT is home base for all the reggae happenings in Montreal & this year we WERE ALL OVER the 12th Annual Montreal International Reggae Festival.
Check out CKUT’s Time Capsule for a slideshow, and interview clip with Lady Saw conducted by Howard ‘Stretch’ Carr & Faithlyn Sankar where Lady Saw talks about infidelity and infertility. Also, a clip of the live performance by Cocoa Tea and acapella performance of Sonia done for radio audiences exclusively thanks to Sistah P of Bhum Bhum Time.
Kara-Lis Coverdale is a composer, musician, and producer who makes multi-layered electronic music rich in melody and spectral intrigue, interrogating divisions between beauty and brutality, physical and virtual, human and machine. Her If You Got Ears residency will focus on innovation musics that challenge the languages and borders of tradition to offer unique gateways into worlds we haven’t yet experienced. Tune in Wednesdays noon - 2pm.
Off the Hour / Aug. 26, 5-6pm / Migrant Justice Activists Continue the Fight for Access to Education for Undocumented Youth
Featured on today’s program:
-Tomorrow is back to school day for thousands of kids across Quebec. On this occasion, members of the Education Across Borders Collective held a rally at the Marguerite Bourgeoys school board, to denounce the fact that hundreds of children are forced to stay at home because their parents don’t have a regularized immigration status. CKUT’s Salomé Parent was there to bring us a report.
-We’ll hear from Dafina Savic, a Roma organizer in Montreal, on the struggles of Roma refugees in Canada. This comes as migrant justice groups prepare for Rock n Roma, a fundraiser concert happening tomorrow night at Cafe l’Artère.
After a long, hot summer break, CKUT’s Culture Blog is back! Find out the best of what Montreal has to offer in this month’s event posting! Including:
RAP-UP Montreal is an exclusive event to showcase some of the top Rap & Hip Hop artists our city has to offer!;
MC/Producer Jai Nitai Lotus shone light on the Montreal Hip Hop scene with his award-winning album “Something you Feel.” His music combines his own forward-thinking, hard-hitting production with messages of hope amidst struggle. His organic live show has been highly-praised and was a show-stopper at the Montreal Jazz Festival.;
Pervers/Cité, in collaboration with Cinema Politica Concordia, is thrilled to present the 2014 film Pride and the 1985 documentary All Out! Dancing in Dulais with Mike Jackson, original founding member of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners, in attendance.
And much more!
