Radio Is Dead

Radio is Dead is a space to foster and showcase creative and experimental radio production by amateur and veteran CKUT volunteers. The broadcasts are often improvised live in the studio and can contain anything from recent digital audio editing experiments, sound collages, electroacoustic compositions, no-input mixer jams, analog effects chain tests, homemade synthesizer workouts... basically anything that involves playing with audio signals.

Broadcasts are planned collectively with CKUT volunteers, based on what they are interested in learning about. The program is coordinated by CKUT's Production Department.
