  • Music Department Meeting

    Posted by Rob on July 13th, 2006

    Hi: We’re having another CKUW Music Department meeting at the station on Thursday, July 20th at 6:00 pm.

    It’s open to all volunteers!

    The topics at this meet are:

    1. Using our new database to search our collection.

    2. Cataloguing, shifting, and sleeving discs.

    3. Labels, labels, labels: Requesting and tracking new releases !

    Our tracking team is still being developed – if you have some experience with this, and if you are interested in assisting with tracking at the station please attend the meeting.

    If you’ve ever thought of getting involved in some way other than doing live radio at CKUW – this is a great opportunity for you to see what else you can do as a CKUW volunteer. Thanks – Don

  • Garageland radio returns!

    Posted by Rob on June 2nd, 2006

    Every Saturday in June on 95.9 FM CKUW!

    Join CKUW volunteers and garage sale enthusiasts city wide for the third annual Garageland radio special. Every Saturday in June CKUW’s volunteers will be scouring the city looking for great garage sale kitsch, red hot deals and the hilariously bizarre!

    A literal ‘Rummage Sale on the air’ Garageland radio is as unpredictable as the sales themselves. We take live calls all day long, mix in some great tunes and the furious hunt for the best find of the day. CKUW teams have brought back everything from barbed wire & rockets to classic LP’s & wacky hats! As teams try to out do each other, it’s been getting crazier every year!!

    Listeners are encouraged to call in their garage sale announcements, tips and stories or just tune in for the fun. The show goes live from 8am to 1pm every Saturday in June on 95.9 FM CKUW.
