Me again. But then, as this is my blog I suppose there’s little need for additional introduction.
Just a quick note to let you know I will return to CKCU this afternoon (evidently the station survived last Wednesday’s fill-in, even with Walter Brennan’s recitation of Old Shep). Tune in at 4 p.m. for one hour of music, as I attempt to fill the stylish shoes of Chris Ikonomopoulos for one week only on his dandy show Turn Up the Radio. So far, I’ve yet to decide what I’ll be playing; I have, however, decided what I will not be playing. Specifically, I will not be playing this:
Which is a bit of a shame, as it’s long been one of my favourite pieces of music. Still, we only have an hour to share and sacrifices must be made. That means The Allman Brothers Band’s epic Mountain Jam is also unlikely to be heard. Fun will be had, though. Do tune in at 93.1 on your FM dial.
Or not. See, as I write this the station is experiencing a bit of resistance from its transmitter and is not exactly sounding its best. A reminder, therefore, that CKCU can also be heard 24 hours a day, distortion-free, via ckcufm.com. That’s also the location to find past programs, available to be streamed on demand. So, like, if you’re sorry you missed Old Shep last week…
That’s 4 p.m. Online at ckcufm.com. On the radio, transmitter permitting, at 93.1. Join me, won’t you?
