Routes & Branches & Beyond

Ivan Emke wearing a warm sweater and playing mandolinRoutes & Branches & Beyond is a weekly excursion, starting from Celtic music and moving beyond – geographically, stylistically and culturally. Travel the world, without changing planes in Toronto.

Routes & Branches & Beyond is hosted by Ivan Emke, is syndicated on Radio Waterloo from the NCRA’s !earshot Digital Distribution System, and airs on CKMS-FM 102.7 Sunday from 6:30am to 7:30am.



Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show

Many of us have devoted a significant amount of time to eating, and to talking and reading and thinking about eating. However, perhaps we have spent much less time thinking about where our food came from. Or who grew it or raised it or hunted it or collected it… or made it in a lab. But that may be changing.

Indeed, in these times, we are beginning to think more about food security, as we realize ever more clearly that in this province (NL) we are at the weakest link of the transportation chain – in an age of extreme weather and climate disruption. If we were not able to ship in food, we would not survive. We produce only around 10% of what we eat. Thus, without imports, we’d eat until about the end of the first week of February, and then we’d go hungry the rest of the year. That is not a good situation.

So it is time to talk about our food system, and the people who play a role in it.

A new weekly radio/podcast show hopes to contribute to that conversation. It is called Fit To Eat show logo (a sheep in a meadow looking in to the camera)Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show. It features conversations with farmers, processors, hunters, chefs, thinkers, innovators, homesteaders, researchers and eaters. And, to further lighten the tone, it includes music suggested by the interview guests.

Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show is hosted by Ivan Emke, is syndicated on Radio Waterloo from the NCRA’s !earshot Digital Distribution System, and airs on CKMS-FM 102.7 on Thursdays from 1:30pm to 2:00m.



Celt In A Twist

Producer Cal Koat is very pleased to bring the very latest, contemporary Celtic music to fresh ears. Says Cal, “It sure ain’t your Grand pappy’s fiddle music.” Celt In A Twist (black runic style lettering on a green background, with a triskel in the centre)Celt In A Twist spotlights the next generation Celtic fusions including everything from the Acid-Croft alchemy of Shooglenifty to the Highland- Metal of Mudmen. “You know, the original Celts wandered from the Asian subcontinent through North Africa to the Iberian peninsula and on to Scandinavia as well as the British Isles,” Cal explains, “so it’s not like you have to have lily white skin and bad teeth to feel a connection to it.”

“And the host couldn’t be a better fit for the program. Patricia Fraser has had her imagination fired and her cultural heartstrings plucked by this music. She’s a terrific communicator with a brilliant mind, who shares the listeners’ excitement as they discover these vibrant, underexposed sounds together.”

Celt In A Twist airs Mondays from 6:00pm to 7:00pm.

Indek Khut ma Indek Sheel

show logoIndek Khut ma Indek Sheel presents the Sudanese music and culture with a brief analyses of songs and cultural practices from different regions in Sudan. In addition, it makes connections with the youth and adults to tackle some cultural challenges, questions, concerns that they face in Canada in order to better cope with Canadian core values such as democracy, peace, freedom of faith, respect of the law and local regulations, cross-cultural relationships, social responsibility as good citizens, etc. English is the main language of the show. Also, the show makes interviews with opinion leaders of the Sudanese community in Canada and  from Sudan, musicians, artists, etc.

Indek Khut ma Indek Sheel is a famous motto in Sudan that means “if you have money you can donate, but if you don’t have money, you can take what you need from this unguarded basket.” It was coined by young women and men in the famous Sit-in that took place in front of the Sudanese Armed Forces Headquarters in Khartoum in 2019 and continued for months. It was ended up by a massacre against protesters on Monday June 3, 2019, more tragically in the Holly Month, Ramadan. The Sudanese  widely accuse The Military and Rapid Support Forces, both of them are in power now in Sudan,  of committing this humanity crime.

This program is not intended for donations or any financial purposes, but it uses this motto,  as a representation of the Sudanese major traditions of collective work for public interest, social cooperation and integration, and promotion of of the Sudanese identity.

Indek Khut ma Indek Sheel is not currently on the schedule.



FROM THE VOID

If you are familiar with Into the Void – then you might be prepared for From the Void. I will push the boundaries and conventions of radio every Tuesday night. While preparing for this show I realized that this isn’t going to just be a show about Experimental music, it’s going to be experimental radio. You won’t know what has been pre recorded or is happening live. You won’t know if it is original or if it’s a top 40 band. You won’t know if you are getting older or getting younger. Time doesn’t exist, sound is subjective and taste isn’t even a consideration. The best part about sounds from the void is you won’t be able to hear it…unless you are already in the void.

show logoFrom The Void is Experimental Music — soundscapes and audio experiments to lose your mind to.

From The Void airs on Tuesdays from 10:00pm to 11:00pm with a replay on Sunday mornings from Midnight to 1:00am.

Together With Ukraine – A Drum and Bass Compilation

Pressure Drop presents,
Thursday, March 3rd, 2022
8 to 10 PM EST
A 2-hour special in support of, “Together with Ukraine”, a Drum and Bass Compilation with tracks donated from some of the top producers worldwide.
All funds raised through sale of this compilation will be donated to Ukrainian Red Cross Society.

With every day that passes, the high-scale humanitarian crisis and assault on the people of Ukraine continues to worsen. Civilian deaths are increasing on a daily basis across the country with no sign of stopping, with millions of citizens already forced out of their homes in search of refuge. As we wake up to yet another day of war, hundreds more innocent lives have been lost and destroyed overnight. We cannot leave this unchecked, and we need to act on this now without hesitation.

Now more than ever is a time for unity, solidarity and support of a nation under attack. It’s crucial for us to use our voice to create widespread and sustained awareness of the situation on the ground in Ukraine, and to give support in every way possible. Whether it’s signing petitions, attending demonstrations, sharing facts on social media, offering help for refugees, or more – this situation cannot be allowed to continue, and engaging in support of any kind for the people of Ukraine is our absolute priority.

Comprised of over 100 exclusive tracks from across the Drum & Bass and wider Bass Music spectrum, alongside over 30 pieces of bespoke visual art, with art direction by Uno (@uno.graphics), we are proud to present our compilation project ‘Together with Ukraine’.

We are incredibly grateful to the music community for supporting our initiative to raise vital funds for humanitarian aid on the front line. All artists and people involved have offered their services free of charge, and all revenue generated will be donated directly to the Ukrainian Red Cross Society. We have set a minimum price of £12 for the compilation, but we would encourage everyone to give generously and donate a higher amount if you have the means to do so.

We would like to thank everybody who has taken part in making this project a reality – including our extended team of Diana and Bohdan (Ukraine), Jan (Germany) and Piotr (Poland) – as well as everybody that is willing to purchase the album.

For more information on the Ukrainian Red Cross Society, and the humanitarian efforts they are undertaking to heal the devastating impacts of the war in Ukraine, please visit their website at redcross.org.ua/en.

She Is Your Neighbour

In 2019, Moving Beyond Violence (words around a blue circle with a silhouette of a dragonfly)She Is Your Neighbour was launched in the form of a blog series and social media campaign. Women’s Crisis Services of Waterloo Region (WSCWR) asked community leaders to share their perspectives on domestic violence and explain why they are invested in ending it. These community leaders became ambassadors of the She Is Your Neighbour project. Together, WCSWR and these leaders explored different types of abuse and challenged the misconception that domestic violence refers only to physical violence. Many ambassadors shared stories of emotional, psychological, and financial violence that they have witnessed or experienced.

In fall 2020, the She Is Your Neighbour podcast was released! In the podcast, WCSWR takes a deep dive into domestic violence. Through thought-provoking discussions WCSWR addresses hard topics like domestic violence and the drug trade, violence against Indigenous women and girls, challenges for transgender youth seeking support, and more.

Season Two was produced in 2021. Throughout this season, we build on topics we explored in Season One and fill in the blanks by covering new topic areas. Join us as we explore the realities and complexities of domestic violence.

Our goal is to increase awareness and understanding of domestic violence through thought-provoking discussions, highlighting groups who are disproportionately impacted. We all have a role to play in ending domestic violence.

She Is Your Neighbour is hosted by Jenna Mayne.

She Is Your Neighbour Season Two airs every other Wednesday at 12:01pm–1:00pm from 26 January 2022 to 1 June 2022; Season Three begins on 15 June 2022.

What Next?

WCSWR encourages you to get involved! Read a blog story, tune into the podcast, buy a book, start conversations, and use the hashtag #SheIsYourNeighbour. We can’t do this without you! We all have a role to play in ending domestic violence.

Redeye is listener-supported radio. We are part of a cooperative — owned and supported by our members. We make our own editorial decisions, because we are accountable to our listeners, not to advertisers or government.
