on stage with the Awakeneers

Folk U Radio celebrates 50 with the Awakaneers

Folk U Radio celebrates 50 live shows on CKTZ 89.5 FM this Friday at 1 p.m. Please join host Manda Aufochs Gillespie and Cortes’s local musicians the Awakeneers (developers of the Folk U Radio theme song Think!) for live music and a peak “back stage” into the music-making lives and inspiration of these neighbours.

Folk University has brought hundreds of neighbours together to share their interests, skills, and knowledge in the fewer than three years since its founding. And when the pandemic shut most everything else down, Folk U didn’t miss a beat thanks to a partnership with Cortes Community Radio and Cortes Currents and neighbours willing to tune-in rather than turn-out.

In 50 shows we’ve learned more about the local environment, wild fire, the brain, art, and what the big issues of our day mean to small towns and smaller islands. You can catch-up at folku.ca/podcasts.

Now, let’s dance! Celebrate! Listen with a friend! Folk U Radio is taking old school viral every Friday at 1 and Mondays at 6:30 @CKTZ89.5FM or livestreamed at cortesradio.ca or you can find repeats anytime at www.folku.ca/podcasts.
