Elena Stoodley hosts Montreal Sessions February 2017

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 ++
