As we continue down The Great Unknown in the second wave of COVID-19, it’s becoming more and more evident that Montreal Caribbean community need to help each other. Unity is strength, division is weakness.
That’s the reason why the Soca Sessions team has been inviting Montreal DJs to submit one hour of their Soca mixes to be aired live on CKUT 90.FM.
As I stated in the previous article that this project is title “SOCA IN YUH 514” and started in October 17 and will continue throughout the rest of the year.
The idea is to use our platform on the FM dial to give all Montreal DJs the opportunity to showcase their talent during these hard times.
The theme “Soca In Yuh 514” on Soca Sessions started October 17th and airs early Saturday mornings (or late Friday nights) from 2:00am – 4:00am on CKUT 90.3FM or website www.ckut.ca.
Here’s the list of DJs lined up for November..
