As we approach the end of the year, there’s no doubt that 2020 has been a tough one.
From the global outbreak of COVID-19 to the number of international and domestic conflicts that have played out since the beginning of 2020, it’s no surprise many people feel as though this year is the worst in their lifetime.
There are also growing concerns about the impact that the second wave of COVID-19 would have on the economy and Canadians’
mental well-being especially if they were forced to go back into social isolation this winter.
However, listening to music is a form of therapy that heals depression, maintain our sanity and provides that much-needed boost. That’s where “SOCA IN
YUH 514″ comes in. The theme is a feature on on Soca Sessions radio program, which started on October 17th, and features Montreal deejays in their glory. The show airs early Saturday mornings (or late Friday nights) from 2:00am –
4:00am on CKUT 90.3FM or website www.ckut.ca.
