25th Anniversary of the Back 40 on CKCU!!

On Saturday Nov 21 the "Back 40" celebrated 25 years on CKCU !!!! With a special broadcast from 12pm-1pm on 93.1FM and then a soup and sandwich lunch at Irene's Pub

Have a listen to the audio from this superb program

The show has played a very important role in developing the Bluegrass and traditional country music scene in Ottawa. It has been a great example of how CKCU can be a community hub. The place to turn to for information on what is going on in the local Bluegrass and traditional country music scene. Here's to many more years Ron!!!!

11:00 PM Rabble Without A Cause
Bernard Stepien presents: Berlin Alchemy part III: cross-generation Free Jazz: Schubert/Müller/Schlippenbach/Clayton/Kellers Berlin harbors some heavy weight Free Jazz stars. Pianist Alexander von Schlippenbach is one of them. By star, I mean that in order to find him, all you need to do is to locate the Deutschland Funk (German national radio) recording truck and follow the massive cables all the way inside the club like the Bb on Rosenthaler Strasse. Eventually, at the other end of the cables you will find Schlippenbach, usually with his friends like Evan Parker or something. But far from enjoying popularity all for himself, Schlippenbach mingles frequently with younger generation of musicians (see below). Of course since his Globe Unity Orchestra of the ‘60s, European Free Jazz has evolved somewhat in different direction, thus the reunion will either reset the clocks somewhat back in history or produce yet something completely new. One thing is for sure, the level of energy is on the very high side: Frank Paul Schubert, soprano saxophones Matthias Müller, trombone Alexander von Schlippenbach, piano Thomas Clayton, bass Willi Kellers, drums Their music is of a sustained intensity and moves like a dynamics roller coaster.
