Given the precarious state of community and other non-commercial radio, this Sunday marks a remarkable event: 25 years since CIUT began broadcasting on the FM dial.
So the station is inviting all listeners & supporters to a 25 anniversary celebration:
Sunday, Jan 15, 1-6pm
Music Room, Hart House, University of Toronto (Map)
CIUT hosts, staff, alumni and others will be there, along with live performances by
Los Caballers del Son
Barry Livingston & Darren Moore
Canadian Space Opera Company
See this page for more goodies & details.
The station’s history actually goes back much further, to the 1960’s, when it broadcast (on and off) through closed-circuit around the campus as “Radio Varsity” and later “U of T Radio” (I briefly hosted a show there sometime in the late 70’s or early 80’s), prior to getting its FM license.
For a bit of history, this 1999 document (a U of T report) includes some history of CIUT
