CKUT is celebrating 30 years of being on the airwaves.
Officially, we turn 30 in November 2017 but we want to celebrate for the whole year with a series of events and activities that will aim to tell the story of CKUT in all its eclectic glory.
We are looking for stories, reflections, and memories of your CKUT experience. These stories will appear on CKUT’s Time Capsule, be available in audio form as a podcast, and possibly be included in a zine that we hope to publish at the end of the year.
So tell us:
What it is like to do programming in the middle of the night?
Some of the more interesting guests & interviews you may have had?
Some of the audio experiments you attempted or created?
Some of the discussions/debates/arguments you had?
Some of the discussions/debates/arguments your community was having and how the radio station engaged in this?
What was it like to work here?
What was it like to be a volunteer here?
If you have been here for a long time - how have things changed?
What was the experience of being here for a short time like?
What was your first impression?
How to submit:
You can record your submission by making an appointment at the station if you would like to record it here.
Alternately, you can record on your cell phone or other audio recording device and email the audio to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also leave your submission on the listener’s comment line voicemail 514-448-4041 ext 2547
If you have any archives, cassettes, photos, flyers, or posters that you think should be included in our time capsule, please dig them up! We can scan and digitalize for you.
And please forward this to anyone who you think may have great stories for us!
