A Face for Radio, A Heart for Love

Posted by Robyn / April 3, 2006

ohmygod, she's posting from INSIDE THE RADIO STATION!!
CKUT that is. However, there is nothing to fear here. Except for underfunding and, ohgod, this DIRTY DIRTY KEYBOARD. Holy crap. I can't even look at it. And this computer has a 5" floppy drive in it. Okay, there's a 3.5 too, but STILL. Why am I here?? Because I like some of the CKUT radio shows and some of the good people who play good music, often late late at night (which I usually download in the morning, to be honest. Radio on the Internet is the best) And RIGHT NOW and until April 9, CKUT is having its annual funding drive!!

And right at THIS MOMENT (er, 12:05 am), people are making music LIVE in the station. If you call and pledge (your love. and money), you might even WIN PRIZES - 514.398.8991.

So, yes, if you like music and/or community-driven greatness and/or CKUT radio station hosts (who really could even be on tv if they wanted to, I'm telling you), then get over to the CKUT website and pledge away anytime in the next week - you can donate $5, you can donate $50, anywhere in between or anywhere above and beyond. I learn SO MUCH from some of these here radio shows, I feel like I owe them tuition. And I am more than glad to pay it. SEND SOME LOVE MONEY, internet people :)

An ode for Cohen's return home:under his ferdoa and before his loxthe dark-suited man wears this city's grineven when he's down in the town of the fallen angel.and we've all tried to know his booth,his mariannes and his tooth-footed clamp on the lights we can't describebut he can, he can and he's our man and we are ladies and the gentlemenand he is our curbside rabbi and he is our show.My favourite Cohen memory in Montreal is a tie .The first would have to be the night a lovely lady and I built a snowman outside of what we were told was once Leonard's house off of Parc du Portugal. We sang his songs and toasted to him all night, dreaming he would come out to join us in our winter revelry.The second is when two of my closest friends and I sat in my tiny old bedroom down in the plateau, three students crammed onto my small and curved bed reading Beautiful Losers out loud to each other. It took us three sessions over three days and a few bottles of wine, but we finished the book together.Poster looks great! Show looks great! Would love to snag those tickets to see Leo!

This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job.
I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Too cool!
