CKMS Community Connections pushes our programming department out into the community to get local stories, promotional events, press conferences, musicians, events, concerts, theatre, culture, political stuff, public interest, public service announcements, etc…
Bonus: To hype new music that we get in and try to highlight local talent!
CKMS Community Connections has two one-hour slots: One is for a pool of programmers and producers to create quality content, the other for drop-in conversation and new music, hosted by a small pool of programmers
CKMS Community Connections has a workshop series for producing radio/podcast/webcast: interviews, storytelling, podcast creation, video creation, and “Train the trainer” sessions on how to produce your own radio show. We’ll produce training documentation: webcasting, live to air programming, podcast production.
Live-To-Air broadcasting is a component, so when something happens somewhere else… We’ll have live -to-air discussion/talk/podcast recording at some community venue, maybe the library, maybe City Hall…
CKMS Community Connections is an ongoing drop-in training timeslot with experienced CKMS trainers for new programmers and existing programmers to refresh skills and learn new programs.
Executive Producer: Jenniefer Stronge
Contributing Producers: Jeff Stager and Bob Jonkman

I’m a Canadian musician, and I wanted to send my upcoming single, “Can’t Lose Again,” to Community Connections. I think it’d be a great fit — it’s fresh, it’s fun, and it’s Canadian!
It’s a 3 minute Northern Soul/Motown whirlwind that tells the tale of a chronically unlucky gambler as he bets his very last dime — but can he finally win?

Hope you enjoy it!
Thanx Luc! I’ll try to have it on this Friday’s edition from 3:00pm to 4:00pm.
Traversing a world populated by snakes, whales, and butterflies, Royal Visit to Uranium City is a cautionary tale of disaster, rebellion, and, of course, love. If not for certain incendiary wafts of ash, this story may not have survived…
Royal Visit to Uranium City is the new album from producer/multi-instrumentalist Kitz Willman. The Winnipeg-based artist flexes their world-building skills with nine brand new songs. This is their first release of 2021, fresh off of their 2020 collaboration with Kay the Aquanaut called “Ancient Fish from the Northwest.”
Winnipeg-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Kitz Willman handles saxophone, piano, bass, drums, and vocals to create experimental jazz influenced by the sampling of hip-hop and heaviness of post-hardcore. Their music is reflective of Ukrainian-Canadian culture, free jazz, and Canadian underground weirdo hip-hop delivered through high energy performances.

Thanx Kitz! We’ll have a track or two on this Monday’s edition of CKMS Community Connections, from 11am to Noon on 1 March 2021.
Hi there, my name is Justin (artist name Cooless). I’ve just released an EP and was hoping you’d take a listen to see if it might be a contender for airplay on your show. I’m Canadian, living in Toronto and all the music is CanCon. I’d be happy to talk/answer any questions and provide you with an mp3 or .wav file of anything that catches your ear. Thanks for your time!
Hi Cooless: I’ll play one or two of your tracks on an upcoming episode of CKMS Community Connections. Let me know if you’re ever in the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge area, and we can set up an interview, or maybe a live, on-air, in-studio performance!
Got some of your tracks on CCC this week, sadly not in their full length. I’ll start next week’s show with “Hostages”. You’re a hard guy to find on the social medias!
