CKUT 90.3FM is a not-for-profit, campus/community radio station in Montreal. As a campus/community radio station, CKUT’s mandate is to provide an essential service to those in the Montreal community whose needs are not met by mainstream commercial and/or public radio. CKUT functions not only as an alternative to the status quo, but also as a viable community resource. CKUT serves as a training ground for the community and student populations, and in doing so provides an essential educational and informational service to the greater Montreal community.
The Music Coordinator is a full-time, permanent position with a salary of $28,600 and four weeks of vacation per year. The ideal candidate will be comfortable wearing many hats: from developing relationships with local music communities to sharing in the station’s management, the Music Coordinator must be a dynamic self-starter with keen attention to detail. The Music Department aims to foster creativity and highlight the most innovative sounds from Montreal and beyond, so a forward-thinking mentality and sense of openness are key to excelling in this position. Working alongside the Music Librarian, the Coordinator is responsible for overseeing the department’s volunteer members, facilitating innovative and high-quality music programming, and partaking in shared collective management duties.
Blue Skies Turn Black was founded in 2000 by Meyer Billurcu and Brian Neuman. In the early days, the company operated as both a record label and a promotion company. In 2007, however, the label ceased operations so that BSTB could shift its primary focus on concert promotion. A decade after its first humble event–a DIY screening of Fugazi’s film ‹Instrument›–Blue Skies Turn Black has become an essential fixture in the Montreal musical landscape, having worked with a wide array of international and local artists in venues of all sizes throughout the city. Its team of employees continue to strive to find exciting up-and-coming bands while also concentrating on the hundreds of bands and artists the company has cultivated relationships with over the years.
