Check it out! I'm the new co-host on the CKUT sex radio show AUDIOSMUT! The two other women who I am now in dirty partnership with are Sara and Stephanie. Together we kick out this monthly radio show, the first wednesday of every month from 6-7pm during the regularly scheduled Hersay hour!
So that means we're on air tomorrow, check out 90.3FM at 6pm or go online to visit CKUT to check out RSS feeds and archives.

Some of you may remember that I was intially interviewed on AUDIOSMUT about a month ago or so and now I'm moving up, baby. Since it's a monthly gig, we have been focussing our energies on crafting theme-based shows for the next 6 months, with titles like 'Going down on the aisle' and 'First Time for Everything'. Look out for flyers here and everywhere advertising these future shows!

Tomorrow's show will be a grab bag of music and short interviews and current affairs stuff as we will be focusing our energy on fundraising for the CKUT Annual Funding Drive. As you may remember, CKUT had a recent brush with radio death when McGill University initiated a referendum to see whether their student population wanted to continue to financially support the station. Thankfully people voted in favour of supporting the station. Here's more about the Funding Drive:

CKUT's 17th Annual Funding Drive - LiveWire
March 30 to April 9, 2006 - 30 mars au 9 avril, 2006

As CKUT steps into its 18th year on the frequency dial, many have come to call these walls home. CKUT has opened its doors to everyone, creating connections in every nook and cranny on the grand isle of Montreal. Individuals and organizations of the like have used CKUT as a stepping stone when no other avenue was open to them. Giving the support and encouragement that every person needs to flourish, CKUT has many success stories accredited to it.

With this success we honour those who have laid the groundwork and made CKUT who it is today. It is a lifeforce like no other-giving birth to new connections, allowing people of different walks of life to come together. As with most family units, ideas can sometimes collide, resulting into an atonal sound. However, when the brainwaves do connect a glorious sound can be heard from the top of the hill. The walls that hold up CKUT are as colourful as its history, leading listeners and its kin into another exhilarating 18 years.

A l'aube de sa 18ième année d'existence, Ckut est pour plusieurs une deuxième famille. Cette place privilégié, Ckut ce l'est mérité en gardant ses portes ouvertes à une diversité de Montréalais et de montréalaises de culture, de race et d'origine diverses. Ckut fut la pierre angulaire de plusieurs organisations et individus alors que l'on doutaient d'eux, ici ils ont reçu le support, les ressources et les encouragements nécessaires pour tout épanouissement. Ckut est donc fier d'avoir contribué à la mise sur pied de plusieurs projets qui furent des succès retentissants.

Ckut ne serait pas ce quelle est aujourd'hui sans reconnaître la contribution de ceux qui l'on bâtit au fils des ans. Ckut est un lieu de création et de vie comme peu, ici des réseaux d'entraide, de communications, d'actions et de créations se développent permettant à des gens de toutes les avenues d'échanger. Comme toutes les familles les idées ne sont pas partagés par tous et toutes mais elles sont entendues, respectés et un espace privilégié pour un vrai dialogue est créé.

Et , si vous écoutez bien, des miracles ont lieu sur les ondes lorsque des échanges véritables et authentiques ont lieu et que la vérité ce fait entendre grâce à la diversité des voix. L'histoire de Ckut est aussi coloré que celle de ces murs il n'en tient qu'a vous d'apporter votre touche personelle!
