March 14, 2009 - The Legend of the Free Kick
Dare I say it... we may be a enjoying a real good-old "early" spring here in Montreal! The snow is gone, pale garbage covers the streets (at least in my neighbourhood) and the dog shit is reeking. However, it ain't over till it's over - and the weather hasn't exactly been monotonous so far this winter. So I am not going to be surprised by anything Mother Nature may have in her trick bag.

Still, we at the Freekick fully support the current pro-active approach to seasonal change, and are doing everything in our power as DJs to hasten the coming of spring - for example, by devoting last weekend's show to a ritual celebration of the fertile musical imagination, featuring the creative forces of artists like:

Roots Manuva, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Super Boiro Band, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Dramatics, James Booker, Snooks Eaglin (RIP), Kate Bush, Ken Nordine, Conlon Nancarrow, Abbie Hoffman, Dukes Of Stratosphear, The Fall, Jeffrey Lewis, Maggie Estep, Thin Lizzy, Aut'Chose, Bruce Haack, Maxime de la Rochefoucauld, Kathy Kennedy, R. Stevie Moore, Cseh Tamás/Másik János, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, Girl Talk, CSS, X-Ray Spex (pictured here), Deja Voodoo, The Cockroaches, Fear, No Means No, Kid Koala & Martin Tetreault, and Intercom!

An mp3 archive of this show is sitting on our CKUT computers... but unfortunately, the recent server cataclysm means that it's still not possible to access the archives. When everything is up and running, I'll put up the links ... in the meantime, here's a link to a show from just over a year ago. This one is a favourite of mine, featuring many female artists in anticipation of Int'l Women's Day.
Next show is Saturday March 28 from 9-11 pm eastern. Please, join us as we continue to turn up the heat on CKUT 90.3 fm!


PS: oh yeah... and NOW... THE...
