Do you remember that little summer gem, Late Nite Kingston? Well, M0tt and Dice are back for a limited time only! Tune in on July 22nd at 12 am, right after A Working Knowledge for a 6 week run. No idea what Late Nite Kingston is? Here's a little description: "Light-hearted and experimental long-form interview and talk show presented warts and all by unprofessional weirdos. We interview nobodies and talk about nothing. A showcase of local subjects, verbs, and objects -- because language is metaphor and words are a shallow, frail vessel for describing the richness of life but it's all we have on the radio." It's going to be fun on a bun!
The federal government has designated Kingston as a community with a demonstrable and significant problem of homelessness. It’s a reprehensible reality: statistics show that we lack affordable housing, have low vacancy rates, and an increasing post-secondary student demand on housing. Worse still, one in ten Kingston families lives in poverty. Within this reality, people cannot accommodate even basic needs with an adequate standard of living. Welcome to Light the Fire: a CFRC original program dedicated to the issue of housing in your own home town. Light the Fire begins airing on Wednesday, June 22, as part of the Wildcard documentary series. Tune in, Wednesdays at 4pm on one of the most inclusive, compassionate stations around—CFRC, 101.9 FM!
The Summer Schedule begins May 2nd. Download the handy PDF version right here! Our online schedule will be up to date within the week with show descriptions and links to the archives.
