Tune in to All Da Way Live Radio for mixes from early Montreal djs, and long format conversations with artist part of an encyclopedia of Canadian hip hop archived at the website North Of The Border.

The 22nd edition of Suoni Per Il Popolo fills up the month of June with a bold display of local and international talent. Over 45 events and 90 participating artists performing indoors, outdoors and streamed for maximum accessibility. A lot to digest and so to help us navigate the Suoni menu CKUT’s Montreal Sessions will be turning the airwaves over to the festival to provide us with an audio programme guide. Tune in Tues. 3 - 5pm May 24, 31st and June 4th & 7th on CKUT 90.3fm or online for a presentation of the music and various other activities happening at this year’s festival.
We had the pleasure of having Paul Cargnello and The Truth in the CKUT music office for a live performance . Paul has been slugging it out in the local Mtl music scene since the 90s. Coincidentally he performed under an old Vendettas poster (his first band). A prolific artist (his bio has him contributing to over 50 albums!), he also has dipped his musical toes into many genres and collaborated with both local and int.artists. The interview was conducted by Khalid M’Seffar and this audio plus the live performance will air on Funky Revolutions. Saturday April 30th from 2pm - 4pm.
