As we look ahead to commemorating Remembrance Day, we are happy to reprise our broadcast of Letters: A Radio Play, produced and recorded right here in our studios. We premiered it last year for this same occasion, and will be airing it this year, on Monday at noon.
Letters is a radio play written by local playwright Brian Langlotz. It’s inspired by real events of World War II, featuring those of the playwright’s family members who served as soldiers in that conflict. Come follow the journey of Paul Bailey, played by Jordan Phillips, a Canadian soldier fighting his way through Italy during World War II, and his wife Betty, portrayed by Elizaveta Katykhina, waiting for him to return, as told through the letters they send each other.
You love to see it, folks: A new handful of fresh-faced, starry-eyed, silver-tongued, and keen-eared volunteers have recently completed their introductory training, and now, we unleash them onto the airwaves, for your listening pleasure. We’ve got two brand new programs debuting this week, and you’re not going to want to miss them.
Starting tonight (Tuesday) at 10:00 pm, two disciples of the local hip-hop scene, Trouble Child and Walker, present The Come Up – their weekly love letter to the lyricists and beatmakers that you’re not otherwise hearing. Their first show will feature an interview with local rapper Tonzo.
Later this week, on Friday at 3:00 pm, indie-folk dreamboat Jacob Brodovsky will introduce the world to Let’s Play DJ!, wherein he will welcome a different guest every week to discuss formative albums and other favourites of theirs. Expect different tunes, different stories, and different vibes each time.
There are more new shows to come yet, so don’t sleep on updates coming soon! And never forget that you could be among the next wave of new programmers here on CKUW. Email [email protected] to find out how you can become one of us.
