CKMS Community Connections

Four people in the CKMS Studio
The voices behind CKMS Community Connections: Bob Jonkman, Jordan Dorans, Jenniefer Stronge, and Jeff Stager
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.

Join us! CKMS Community Connections currently airs on Mondays from 10:00am to noon.

Into the Void

Every Friday from 10pm to 11pm I will take you deep into the void to explore music of the mind and hopefully teach you a few things about music you know or music you have never heard. Occasionally you will hear music I have, painstakingly, brought into this world from the deepest depths of my mind.

Requiem for Rock

They say rock n roll is dying, maybe dead….Elvis said that about vaudeville in 1955. I can’t say for sure…can you?

Join me WEDNESDAY NIGHTS AT 10 for a Requiem for Rock.  A time line from beginning to “end?”   A little Musicology and social history, tunes from the featured genre of the week, and if you want to call in and tell me why rock is alive or dead, let’s discuss it, peacefully.

If you have a band that touches on the next week’s featured genre, send in your music. Also will promote live acts.

golden record

The Golden Record consists of 115 analog-encoded photographs, greetings in 55 languages, a 12-minute montage of sounds on Earth and 90 minutes of music.

What would you put on a Golden Record?

The text below was spoken by Kurt Waldheim, the Secretary General of the United Nations.

I send greetings on behalf of the people of our planet. We step out of our solar system into the universe seeking only peace and friendship, to teach if we are called upon, to be taught if we are fortunate. We know full well that our planet and all its inhabitants are but a small part of the immense universe that surrounds us and it is with humility and hope that we take this step.

Here is that recording as well as recordings by other speakers. Feel free to send me your recording of the same text.

Original Waldheim recording

The recording in Korean by Jay Jeong  2018

 

 

More info on the Golden Record. This is the show opening clip.

40 years ago in 1977, CKMS radio and the Voyager spacecrafts were launched. in a few years, the spacecrafts will power down, as their nuclear power source dwindles. We trust CKMS will be broadcasting for many more years than that.

The Voyager Golden Records are phonograph records that were included aboard both Voyager spacecraft. The records are thought to be able to remain intact for a billion years.
The records contain sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, and are intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. Those records are considered as a sort of, time capsule.

Carl Sagan noted that “The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space. The launching of this ‘bottle’ into the cosmic ‘ocean’ says something very hopeful about life on this planet.

Sagan and his associates assembled 115 images and a variety of natural sounds, such as those made by surf, wind, thunder and animals (including the songs of birds and whales). To this they added 30 musical selections from different cultures and eras, spoken greetings in 55 ancient and modern languages, and other human sounds, like footsteps and laughter.

Here is an excerpt of President Carter’s official statement placed on the Voyager spacecraft for its trip outside the Solar System, June 16, 1977:

We cast this message into the cosmos … Of the 200 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy, some – perhaps many – may have inhabited planets and space faring civilizations. If one such civilization intercepts Voyager and can understand these recorded contents, here is our message: This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts, and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope some day, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilizations. This record represents our hope and our determination and our goodwill in a vast and awesome universe.

So Old It’s New

This is Bald Boy. I host a classic rock album cuts show — So Old It’s New — on 102.7 Sound FM Radio, airing 8-10 pm Mondays. The show’s premise: Old bands, old tracks, old bands, their new tracks if they’re still releasing music. Mostly 1960s and 70s stuff, the era in which I grew up. But I’ll go with 80s, 90s, 2000s as well – Guns ‘N Roses, The Cult, Wolfmother, REM, you name it.  Prog and (70s) punk, too. Or whatever else strikes my fancy.

And I’ll play the occasional single you likely have not heard on commercial rock radio in many a moon, which is what prompted this show – my frustration with commercial rock radio not going beyond the same repetitive fare from the Stones, Zep, Purple and the like.

So with me, you’ll get the Stones’ Fingerprint File, not Start Me Up. You’ll get Zep’s Achilles Last Stand, not Stairway To Heaven.  I publish all my set lists here and also on Facebook (search for Bald Boy) and Twitter (Karlo Berkovich), including song clips.

Rebel Time Radio

Rebel Time Radio is a punk rock show with a (very!) political flavor. We play a wide variety of punk, hardcore, ska and oi while having a laugh at politicians and rich people. We’re anti-fascist, against sexism, want to wipe out homophobia and transphobia, and generally can’t stand when powerful people take advantage of others. In sum, these are rebel tunes for rebel times!

Tune in every Wednesday at 9 pm to fill your earholes with joy with our live shows, or catch our somewhat more polished podcasts, which go up pretty regularly on the Radio Waterloo website. You can also subscribe to our show on iTunes or find us on other podcatchers. Why not eh!?

Check out the Official Website of Rebel Time Records and maybe go give us a like on Facebook to stay up to date with all things to do with our high quality international music empire. You can listen to (and even purchase) amazing Rebel Time releases at our Bandcamp page. Request tunes, tell us about shows and your band, or send spam messages to rebeltimeradio@gmail.com. Enjoy the show!
