Important Records sent the CKUT music Department the Gift that keeps on Giving in the form of 2 precious Clear Vinyl Records inside a Gate Fold Jacket that is Dark and astronomically attractive, i would like to enter in to it and never return - el paraiso entre los globulos ilusorios. I have been tasting the fruit of this rare piece of sound emitting plastic one composition at a time, savoring my first listens with each radio show i do, as this is just one of them... being the music departement coordinator at CKUT means, sometimes doing a lotta lotta radio.

On Monday Morning - i received a package of the most beautifully colored vinyl from the wonderful Prophase Record Label out of Audubon PA. When the Music Department gets this kind of promo material, we shed a tear, because, the truth is Some labels, promo companies, artists think that sending promo materials to CKUT and C/C radio in general is pointless - they would prefer to have bloggers write about their music, rather than have it played on the Radio. "Radio is Dead, Man. " is the a common conversational thread that has been weaving in and out of my conversations with industry/ and artists themselves. I beg to Differ - CKUT's FM signal reaches the faction of Montreal's community that is listening for something else, something, live, organic, something spontaneous. The fact that you can go to the dollar store and buy a radio = it's an accessible medium that, in this city draws in artists, community leaders and activists who curate programming that makes me proud every hour. Radio is dead - right, sure, then what the fuck am i doing?
Thank-You Prophase for supporting us, for believing in radio and it's power of transmission.

According to the fine folk at Exploratorium Magazine
" The period of naked eye visibility" of the comet Kohoutek spanned the end of Nov. 1973 until late Jan. 1974. Initially touted as the "Comet of the Century", it put on what was considered a disappointing display."Aww, crap, that comet was a real disappointment - maybe we should have it enhanced, maybe if space explorers trow more rubbish into spaces' vacuum, the comet will be better next time around....o.k. The publics' expectations around the spectacle have always been fucked, so it seems.
