In Conversation with Rickey D

Legendary Montreal promoter and veteran CKUT host Rickey D is one of the best-known names in the local hip hop scene, and in honour of his legacy we’re putting together a special event to honour his amazing accomplishments over the years. Join us at Artgang on Sunday October 15th at 4pm for a very special live conversation between Rickey and Malik Shaheed. We’ll be digging into Rickey’s unbelievable stories (trust us - they’re pretty wild), his career highlights, and fielding questions from the audience while our own DJ Pro-V spins the jams in the background. Don’t miss this essential piece of Montreal hip hop history!

CKUT 90.3FM and POP Montreal are shaking up campus and we want to see you there!

Come meet the folks from CKUT, your McGill Campus/Community Radio station, peruse some musical wares, and get the scoop on one of the raddest media outlets on campus. We’ll be on site all day long with our friends from POP Montreal giving you the lowdown on our programming and what’s to come this fall!

Join us Thursday September 21st from 11am - 4pm at the McGill Y intersection (north of Ave McGill College and Sherbrooke W). In case of rain, we will be in the lobby of the Leacock building (855 rue Sherbrooke Ouest). We’re always looking for new volunteers, so this is your chance to learn more and get involved.


CKUT is celebrating 30 years on the FM dial. Kicking things off will be a party at Pop Montreal with The Mighty Diamonds. We also will be adding to our Time Capsule, creating a podcast and zine about 30 years of broadcasting and conducting some oral history events.
