The Monday Morning After, hosted by Taylor Tower and Cam Novak. On today’s show – The Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux du Québec and the Montreal Police are banning hip hop music in local bars. Bar owners applying for a liquor license must agree not to play or host hip hop/rap artists. Read “Dire non au hip-hop pour avoir un permis d’alcool”, published in La Presse on March 22nd to learn more. We interview Annick Maugile-Flavien – writer, radio producer and member of The Montreal Hip Hop Movement – about the ban, the movement against it, and what’s next. You can check out Annick’s work and learn more about the Montreal Hip Hop Movement by visiting her blog and joining the Facebook group.
