We’ve past the $40,000 mark! 

Thank you everyone who has donated so far! You can pick up your gifts and pay your pledges Monday to Friday 11am to 6pm. We are located at 3647 University. Just come up to the 2nd floor to see us!

It’s never too late to donate! Pledge $30 for 30 years of CKUT Radio! If 300 more people pledge $30, we will make our annual goal of $50,000!

II. CKUT Annual General Meeting

CKUT’s Annual General Meeting is fast approaching. We will convene to make any decisions relating to by-law changes and member motions, elect steering, board, and programming committee members, and learn about fun that has taken place in during the past year at CKUT!

If you are a volunteer interested in participating in the collective management of the station (joining the board, steering, or procom), email chair@ckut.ca! The board takes care of the long term visioning and structural/financial decisions, steering takes care of the day-to day decision-making, and procom takes care of all programming-related decisions at the station.

CKUT members can bring motions to our AGM! Motions must be submitted to chair@ckut.ca at least 10 days in advance of the AGM, by November 19th, 2017. Here’s a power point with all the information you need to draft a member motion!

III. CKUT is looking for Board of Directors!

V. Call Out for Zine and Podcast Participants & Volunteers

For our 30th Anniversary, we are creating a podcast and zine about 30 years of broadcasting.

We are looking for stories, reflections, and memories of your CKUT experience. These stories will appear on CKUT’s Time Capsule, be available in audio form as a podcast, and possibly be included in a zine that we hope to publish at the end of the year.

You can record your submission by making an appointment at the station if you would like to record it here. Alternately, you can record on your cell phone or other audio recording device and email the audio to admin@ckut.ca. You can also leave your submission on the listener’s comment line voicemail 514-448-4041 ext 2547

If you have any archives, cassettes, photos, flyers, or posters that you think should be included in our time capsule, please dig them up! We can scan and digitalize for you.

And please forward this to anyone who you think may have great stories for us! More info here.

And for anyone who is interested in conducting interviews, sound editing, copy-editing, archiving or generally helping out with 30th Anniversary activities, email admin@ckut.ca
