Venus Radio works to bring you feminist, queer, female, trans, and gender non-conforming perspectives through music. We want to combat and address patriarchy as it impacts the music industry, both mainstream and beyond. Our primary objective is to celebrate music of all genres and all forms of artistic expression by women, queer people, and gender non-conforming folks on our show, as well as through our blog, events, outreach, and partnerships.
Modular Systems serves to educate listeners on the various forms of electronic music, highlighting techno, house, and minimal genres specifically. We also wish to provide a forum for local DJs and producers to get exposure through our airwaves; Modular Systems encourages the local electronic music scene by inviting guests, covering local events and providing listings for relevant happenings. Anyone who wishes to discover or broaden their knowledge or simply enjoy a journey though electronic music should tun in Sunday afternoons 13:00-14:00
Loosely inspired by evangelical radio formats, the Harvey Christ Radio Hour features storytelling, sermons and hymns – all performed live by Reverend Randy Peters, Reverend Norm, Reverend Anna Montana, Reverend Joalien and Reverend Brian Damage. Harvey Christians satirize dogmatic beliefs – across religion, politics, and pop culture —and mix the serious with the bizarre as an antidote to mainstream radio and religion. They’re a bunch of cockamamie, barn-burnin’ neo-compost-modern evangelical fools; divinely incomprehensible spiritual gurus (-neither beards nor rash); freaks in polyester & wool suits in high summer. Must be heard to be believed.

L’émission Chaud pour le Mont-Stone est une manipulation en direct de plus d’une dizaines de sources sonores différentes. Élaborée à partir de montages sonores pré-enregistrés (composés de musiques originales, de sons, de voix, de mots, de bruits, et de multiples extraits de télévision et de radio), les bandes sont diffusées simultanément en studio en plus de la manipulation en direct de d’autres sources sonores telles les magnétophones à cassettes, les lecteurs CD, le micro, les tables tournantes, la radio en direct, etc. Ces nouveaux sons viennent alors compléter le produit radiophonique final.
Basa means pandemonium and sometimes the listener can sense that while tuned in, harnessed in a way that conveys the energy and passion behind the music. Basa features Africa as the heart and soul of global music, while delving into aspects of African life and culture: you might hear anything from politics to poetry, story-telling, food and anything to do with African life during the show. However, music will always be the main focus of Basa; music is the message. With your host Marty Lebovitz. Tuesday mornings 9am - 11am.
