Funding Drive!! Keep CKCU and the music alive!

Music. Music is not a luxury item. Every society, every culture in human history has had music as an integral component. Music has evolved with language many many thousands of years ago and it is an essential part of being human. Humanity is no more able to survive without music than without language (including sign or other non-verbal language). Here, on CKCU and particularly on my program, we explore what it means to be human with music from all over the world and historical periods--musical threads which connect cultures and people and expose the common experience of life we all share. I started hosting this show as a music student at Carleton in 1994. A lot has changed in 27 years, but two things have remained absolutely constant: my enthusiastic pursuit of all the music in the world and my love of sharing it with you every week! Once a year we rely on our listeners to show their support for the venerable CKCU and keep us on air for another year, please show your support for CKCU and the world of music I share with you every Thursday afternoon!
Finally, I saw the first live music after 621 days! What a way to break this drought, with Gidon Kremer and his Kremerata Baltica. Kremer performed this amazing Piazzolla piece with pianist Andrius Žlabys.
