CKUT : yes, it is music.
CKUT's music programmes run the gamut of genres and non-genres with a penchant for innovation and experimentation, niches of pleasure to titillate a variety of discerning listener's tastes. Our broadcast studio is used as a zone for live experimentation, performance, and community involvement on a weekly basis. We don't take ourselves too seriously and enjoy pushing the boundaries of what's expected from a radio frequency.
CKUT is one of the largest volunteer owned and operated Campus/Community radio stations in Montreal, broadcasting 5000 watts of power at 90.3FM from the radio tower that crowns the peak of Mount Royal. The terrestrial range of the broadcast signal reaches about 150 kilometres around the city, with live streaming and six months of program archives available at ckut.ca. CKUT is supported by the students of McGill University, community members, and listener's from Montreal and beyond.
CKUT is one of the the largest, if not the largest and most active Campus/Community Radio Stations in Canada. The station's direction and programming is a result of the ideas and efforts of over four hundred volunteers who create live radio 24/7, 365 days a year. A volunteer owned and operated station, CKUT operates with a non-hierarchical collective management structure. CKUT's programming is split into three categories with music occupying the largest portion of air time, and news and culture programmes providing the much needed space for marginalized voices and opinions.
No traffic reports, story assignments, play lists, listener surveys, or demographics to cater to, CKUT 's programming content is entirely in the hands of our volunteer hosts and producers who have free reign over the content that they send out over the airwaves, ensuring that the station's programming is not dictated by some self appointed taste maker. 95% of the programming produced in house.

Steve Jr. make a hell of a lot of noise for a duo. Ever since getting their latest self-released tape here at the ol' CKUT, folks have been going crazy over their heavy psych jams. Together, Corbin and Gleb meld crushing yet infinitely catchy riffs with pounding drums and wailed vocals and the result is a truly impressive wall of sound. We were thrilled to have them join us for an in-studio performance during New Shit, even though their volume shook the room enough to make CDs fall off shelves. We forgive 'em.

Local duo Le fruit vert have become masters at building intricate sonic worlds. Layers of vocals, effects, and an array of acoustic and electronic instruments weave together, a web of finely-tuned sonic detail stretched out to envelope listeners in sound. We caught them live at Casa del Popolo on June 17th as part of the Suoni Per Il Popolo festival, broadcasting their set over the airwaves for all to hear. Here's the audio for those who missed it -- and those who want to re-live the magic all over again.
