February 22, 2017 marks the 15th annual Homelessness Marathon, a yearly overnight coast to coast radio broadcast to raise awareness.
The Marathon is made possible each year in solidarity with and thanks to the participation of those affected by homelessness. To share your experience call 1-866-584-7729 from 5pm on February 22nd to 7am on February 23rd.
Is February being the designated month for black history celebration a hard fact to digest for you because hey, it’s the shortest month of the year and the coldest one too??
(Canada life ya’ll)
… Girl, you’re not alone. (Girl includes everyone to simplify text) Since there is no real solution to it, fleur-it, let’s make it great. I, Elena Stoodley, will host CKUT radio’s next Montreal Sessions a Black February Month edition , every Tues. 3-5pm @ www.ckut.ca or on your radio machine @ 90.3fm in Montreal. ++ A new theme every Tuesday ++
Local sound aficionado Owen G. is taking over If You Got Ears for the month of February, and he promises to dig deep into the hidden corners of the internet to unearth the rarest of outsider sounds. In his own words:
hi friends. my name is owen and i am hosting this radio program. i will play the best music youtube vids with sub 2k views recordings of people yelling stuff not made by humans the remains of the old internet empire songs made specifically to wreck computers and all your favourite hits

We will screen three independent films (Watermelon Woman, Born in Flames and Itty Bitty Titty Committee) that touch on issues relating to alternative media, revolutionary futures, and grassroots organizing. Drop by for a film or stay for all three! For more info here.
