Le Ren Studio Session and Interview

Lauren Spear, otherwise known as Le Ren, is a local Montreal musician and singer-songwriter, and she just released her double EP Songs I Outta Hear/Songs I Outta Sing.

CRFC funds CKUT podcasting and video production projects!

CKUT is very pleased to announce it has received this Fall an important financial contribution from the Commmunity Radio Fund of Canada. This CFRC grant of $50,000 will help the station expand beyond the FM dial by implementing new approaches to programming, with a focus on podcasting as well as a music performance video series.

As part of this program, we will be hosting podcasting workshops through the academic year to train programmers on building podcasting platforms for their shows. We will also provide training to volunteers on video production.
