Oral History with Former CKUT Volunteer Stuart Greer
Stuart was active at CKUT from 1991-95 and worked in the Spoken Word and News Department.
He describes arriving at a time that spawned a lot of activism as it just followed the Oka Crisis and infamous Sex Garage also just following the Gulf War.
Stuart details what news gathering looked like during this period: receiving communiques in the mail, making cold calls and organizing broadcasts on a bulletin board. A time when people smoked a lot, right in the station, and embraced the misfits. Stuart went on to cover news with Global News, CBS, SKY and is currently residing in Prague working for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty.
