Poetry & spoken word
During DIY-DJ CKUW will be passing the mic – to you! Prepare a radio show on a topic or issue you care about. Or maybe you want to share recordings and music that are special to you: your 1988 high school jazz band performance, a focus on that local 90’s ska group you liked, or perhaps a rare demo of Neil Young no one has ever heard before. It’s up to you! While you’re here you can take a tour of our studios, check out our record collection, record a radio spot for broadcast, and more! We’ll provide the technical support – you bring the ideas!
This event is free.
