*Social Media, Blogging, Twitter, The Future…. getting your radio out there ( Erin W & Mark Brooks)

If a tree falls in a forest, and nobod

y hears it, does it make a sound? If an amazing hour of radio transpires on CKUT, but it isn’t talked about online, will anyone tune in?

Your radio show is awesome, but are you doing your part to make sure people know about it? There are many sure-fire ways of getting your listenership up. Hear from people who are making it happen, and can show you how!

*Oral History & Radio (Caroline Kunzle)

Radio is an oral medium so oral history and radio should be a natural relationship. But what does putting oral history on the radio sound like? And what about the parts you don’t hear on the air ? What about the oral history of radio itself? What traces remain of CKUT’s history and how much of it is oral? What’s oral and what’s not, what’s history and what’s not and why?

Caroline Kunzle produces Radio Works! a radio segment airing on the Monday Morning After which highlights stories, questions and conversation coming out of Life Stories Montreal, an oral history project collecting the life stories of Montrealers displaced by war, genocide and other human rights violations (see http://www.lifestoriesmontreal.ca).
