The Surround Sound Radio Documentary Festival is a new initiative. The brainchild of CKCU host, journalist, and singer-songwriter Kristine St-Pierre, the festival will highlight the art of radio documentary-making with four hours of programming over the next four weeks on CKCU in Ottawa, CJSR in Edmonton and online. The documentaries range from Africa to your own living room, with stories as broad and intimate as you can imagine.

Randy MacNeil's been making photographs of musical legends for more than 30 years. While you may have seen some of them in his book "A Portrait of Blues in Canada", a new exhibit of 30 of his favorite images will open at The Atomic Rooster on Bank Street on Sunday night. "Legends and Icons" will be celebrated with a vernissage on Tuesday evening, featuring music by Sugar Brown and Bharath Rajakumar. //
