CKMS Community Connections for 27 September 2021 – Last Week’s Music

Show Notes

Last week I promised to play a bunch of Canadian Content and KW Content music. In a weird way, it was good that I couldn’t play it, because Mo Markham was a great guest with lots of info about KW Vegfest. So, mea culpa, and here are all the songs and artists I didn’t play last week. No commentary on this show, but I hope to invite all the artists into the studio once it re-opens.

–Bob.

CKMS Community Connections for 20 September 2021 with Mo Markham of Vegfest

Show Notes

Mo Markham headshot, in front of pink curtains
Mo Markham of KW Vegfest
Mo Markham joins me, Bob Jonkman, on a web conference to talk about the upcoming KW Vegfest 2021, and tells us about the speakers and vendors who will be at this year’s Vegfest. We talk about veganism, the need for a plant-based diet, and the “Ag Gag” laws that try to suppress publication of the problems with industrial agriculture. The speaker presentations are being recorded, so we’ll have Mo back in a few weeks to as we put some on the air.

I promised to play a bunch of new CanCon and KWCon music today, but there was so much Vegfest to talk about we didn’t get to it. We’ll definitely have a full music episode next week, and I’ll invite the musicians to come into the studio (when it re-opens) for a Live, On-Air, In-Studio performance!

The interview starts at 6m30s.

6m16s Mo Markham tells us about this year’s KW Vegfest, being held in-person at the Kitchener Market. She gives a little history, and then goes over the Covid protocols in place, done by the Kitchener Market staff. There’s no online component, but presentations will be recorded and we’ll air excerpts on a future CCC. Mo tells us about the KW Vegfest programme, and tells us about some of the musical guests. There’s more stuff happening outside, and Mo goes over the list of vendors. We talk about transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, there are Vegan Societies to help people with this, for example the KW Vegan Society and the Cambridge, Ontario Vegan Society. KW Vegfest is put on by KW Animal Save.

Veganism is one of the ways to address climate change — animal agriculture is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Plant Based Treaty was recently set up to bring attention to this, and some municipal councillors are already on board.

Mo’s cat Joanie introduces herself, and we talk about plant-based cat food. Cats are obligate carnivores, they’re required to eat meat. But the only nutrient needed by cats missing in plants is taurine, so adding a taurine supplement makes plant-based cat food completely nutritious for cats.

We talk about “vegan” as an ethical choice, separate from eating a plant-based diet. Veganism includes not using any animal based clothing, not going to the zoo, not riding a horse, not using animals in any way. It’s not only animal welfare that drives people to veganism, but also climate change. Mo tells us of her experiences in seeing the effects of climate change herself.

35m24s Talking about “Ag Gag Laws”, to suppress information about the conditions for animals in industrial agriculture. Mo gives details about some of these “acceptable” practices. Content Warning: Mo gives some explicit descriptions of animal abuse. Talking about the specifics of the law, how it doesn’t do what it claims to do. There have been no incidents of disease brought in my activists. But it’s foreign and low-paid workers who are most at risk of the zoonotic diseases spread by poor working conditions in these places. Strong agricultural industry lobbying keeps this law on the books.

CKMS Community Connections for 9 August 2021: The Toronto Prisoners Rights Project Compilation Launch

Show Notes

Peter Snow at the microphone
Peter Snow

You may remember our show from 10 May 2021 with Peter Snow from The Soviet Influence, a politically active, indie rock band from southern Ontario. Peter spoke of a live, online event in August for prisoner justice.

The Soviet Influence have partnered up with the Toronto Prisoners Rights Project (B&W illustration of birds escaping from a gap in barbed wire)Toronto Prisoner Rights Project and produced a compilation record and streamed show this past weekend to raise funds and awareness of this cause. CKMS Community Connections is re-broadcasting that show, recorded by our sister campus radio station from Guelph University, CFRU-FM. It features performances from The Soviet Influence, Friday Empire, Skye Wallace, and Joni Void, along with interviews and information about the project.

The Toronto Prisoner’s Rights Project (TPRP) is a volunteer organization of former prisoners, people with loved ones inside, front-line workers, artists, researchers, educators and students. They engage in direct action, public education, and mutual aid to shed light on the harms caused by incarceration and connect prisoners with social, financial, legal and health supports. They’re committed to abolition and building sustainable communities rooted in community care, transformative justice, and accountability.

Tomorrow, Tuesday 10 August 2021 is Prisoners' Justice Day 2021 | August 10, 5-8pm Church of the Holy Triniity, 19 Trinity Square | #PJD #NoMoreDeathsInCustodyPrisoner Justice Day. Please join the memorial at the Church of the Holy Trinity, in Trinity Square tucked between the Eatons Centre and the Marriott Downtown. Between 5pm and 8pm there will be a vigil in solidarity with those who have died while incarcerated as well as to show support for prisoners’ rights. Former prisoners and their loved ones will share their stories and truths. There will be activities, music, performances, food, swag and more! Folks are encouraged to show up to demonstrate solidarity with prisoners and those impacted by incarceration. No one is free until we are all free.

You can support the Toronto Prisoner Rights Project at https://www.torontoprisonersrightsproject.org/get-involved-and-support All proceeds go to mutual aid projects including the Prisoner Emergency Support Fund, Jail Hotline, and Good Food Boxes, and support our direct action advocacy work (through digital organizing tools and protest supplies). Supporters can contribute a monthly donation on Patreon that includes exclusive TPRP merchandise as a thank-you.

https://www.patreon.com/torontoprisonersrights

Or you can make a one-time donation to the Prisoner Emergency Support Fund, started by the Criminalization and Punishment Education Project and the Toronto Prisoners’’ Rights Project. It’s a team of volunteers that are organizing to support prisoners, who believe that people need access to community support and not human cages. The fund was originally launched as a response to the pandemic. Given the clear gaps in care that have been revealed by the volume of applications, they are continuing to raise funds so long as there are needs to be met. This fund is intended for people inside prisons and jails and recently released prisoners. People behind bars often need support to contact their loved ones or purchase essential items on their canteen. Recently released prisoners need access to funds for housing, food, clothing, and physical and mental health supports. Families who still have loved ones behind bars need funds for expensive phone bills and canteens.

CKMS Community Connections for 3 May 2021

Show Notes

Since the studio remains closed we’re playing more new Canadian Content and KW Content music today, and a few tracks released last year too. The definition of “KW Content” broadens yet again — while the group Your New False Gods hails from Scotland, lead singer Kevin Combe has family in Kitchener, and that makes them our neighbours from a different country. Right?

CKMS Community Connections for 12 April 2021

Show Notes

There’s another lockdown for the Covid pandemic, and the Radio Waterloo studio remains closed. In good news, there are now vaccinations available in Waterloo Region, and there is lots of new music from local Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and Palm Springs musicians (OK, Michael Gagliardi lives in Palm Springs, but he’s got a house in Kitchener, so that counts as KWCon to me!)

Since the program is all music, there’s no podcast. If you want to listen to the music again, tune in to CKMS-FM 102.7 Radio Waterloo, or click through the artist links in the music index and buy their music!

Show Notes

It’s the first CKMS Community Connections show of spring, when grass is growing, birds are singing, and new music is released. The studio remains closed due to Covid so there’s no interviews, but we have lots of newly released music with several tracks from local Waterloo Region musicians!

CKMS Community Connections for 15 March 2021 – The Holidays

Show Notes

Today is The Ides Of March, but the 15th of March falls in a run of other celebratory days: Pi Day, St. Urho’s Day, and of course, St. Patrick’s Day. So today we depart a bit from our usual format with some holiday music, and a poetry reading. The recording of Gene McCavic is a bit unclear, so here’s the text from the definitive St. Urho’s web site.

Ode to Saint Urho

by Gene McCavic and Richard Mattson

Ooksi kooksi coolama vee
Santia Urho is ta poy for me!
He sase out ta hoppers as pig as pirds.
Neffer peefor haff I hurd tose words!

He reely tolt tose pugs of kreen
Braffest Finn I effer seen
Some celebrate for St. Pat unt hiss nakes
Putt Urho poyka kot what it takes.

He kot tall and trong from feelia sour
Unt ate kala moyakka effery hour.
Tat’s why tat kuy could sase toes peetles
What krew as thick as chack bine neetles.

So let’s give a cheer in hower pest vay
On Sixteenth of March, St. Urho’s Tay.

CKMS Community Connections for 8 March 2021 – International Women’s Day

Show Notes

It’s International Women’s Day, so today we’re celebrating by featuring music by the women of Waterloo Region. Sadly, there’s only an hour of CCC so we couldn’t possibly squeeze in all the wonderful musicians in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge, and the townships. If you’ve got some music you’d like aired on Radio Waterloo then send an e-mail at office@radiowaterloo.ca and we’ll be happy to add it to our Digital Music Library. Full information is at How To Submit Music.

But the skills are transferrable, working at CKMS helps hone the craft for a commercial radio career. Val and Rob both have “The Voice” of professional announcers — how did they get it? Mostly it comes from yourself, but in the broadcast course people will point out voice problems. Having “The Voice” isn’t needed on Community Radio, we’re more interested in what you have to say than in how you say it.

CKMS Community Connections for 1 February 2021

Show Notes

The Coronavirus has not yet been defeated, and the Radio Waterloo studio remains closed for both guests and show hosts. So I dug through my overflowing e-mail inbox, and found some new Canadian musicians and a few I’ve played before. Enjoy!

CKMS Community Connections for 25 January 2021

Show Notes

The studio remains closed due to the Covid lockdown, and so Chelsey Danfield wasn’t able to come in. She’s been invited back for a Live, On-Air, In-studio performance as soon as everything is back to normal, but the best we can do today is play some tracks from her last album, At The Time.

We’ve also got two new album releases today:

Peter Snow at the microphone
Peter Snow, The Soviet Influence (24 Feb 2020)
Peter Morey at the microphone
Peter Morey, The Soviet Influence (24 Feb 2020)

  • The Soviet Influence who were in the studio in February 2020, will be releasing Socialism: An Introduction this Friday, 29 January 2021.
  • Dichroma will be releasing their second EP, Two next month, February 2021. We interviewed Aaron Dawe on 26 October 2020, when we talked about this upcoming release.
