Latin Music Monday presents the rich diversity of music coming from Latin America, from Canadians of Latin roots, and generally music inspired in Latin America. We explain the historical context of music, understanding music as another form of narrative that reflects the struggles and challenges that people living in the region face daily. This program is a window to the experiences of the many communities of Montrealers born or interested in Latin American culture. The show airs on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Mondays of the month, 9-11am.
Feels like 1976… 3 hours a week of straight funk by the earful / noseful, with all the necessary side steps into blues and soul down the buffet line. Old school by trade, showcasing equal parts classic, dusty and buried grooves, with a soft spot for blaxploitation soundtracks. Drizzled with offbeat repartee and the occasional conspiracy report.
Good for mild to moderate ennui as well as stiffness of the neck and feet.

Emerging from the rubble of dance music, where genre distinctions are collapsing, monopolies toppling and orthodoxies disintegrating on an hourly basis, Your Radio is Broken is a genre-transcending palette of raw music whose pluralism mirrors the fundamental shifts taking place around the world. Your Radio is Broken serves those looking for alternative, cutting edge, electronic music that is as energetic and diverse as the city of Montreal. The show aims to bring exposure to underground/independent artists, both locally and internationally, who are continually stretching the boundaries of classifiable music. We hope to showcase artists who are bringing excitement and innovation to a domain that can often fall into complacent mediocrity. This program airs every Tuesday night, 2-4am.

WEFUNK is a weekly radio mix-show. DJ Static and Professor Groove began broadcasting WEFUNK to Montreal in 1996. Early in 1999 WEFUNK began webcasting and archiving their shows online, and the world got their taste of the WEFUNK sound. iTunes started syndicating their radio stream in 2001, giving WEFUNK a lot more worldwide exposure. Since then they’ve been doin’ their thing, searching out new grooves to make you move, recording hundreds more weekly shows and building up the website. Montreal’s bumpin’ WEFUNK every Friday night on CKUT, and you can catch the 24/7 on wefunkradio.com.
WEFUNK celebrates a lineage of powerful, inspired music. The roots of soul, funk and rapping go back way further than the 70s, but something special began when James Brown gave the drummer some, Larry Graham hit the bass harder, Kool Herc gave the dancers breaks, DJ Hollywood worked the mic… and musicians worldwide found the funk seeping through their walls and into their music. Strong music gave a strong foundation to speak on social problems, relationships, politics and living conditions. And it made one hell of a party groove. Funk gave birth to hip-hop, and as the past grew into the present funk and hip-hop touched every modern music, leaving their mark—a swagger, a groove, mo’ bounce… and something to twist your face and nod your head to. You know it when you hear it. And they play it on WEFUNK.
Catch WEFUNKFridays midnight-2:00am every week.
