Often that can mean playing less and listening more.” Collaboration is one of Nat’s greatest delights. Nat (Greg’s) involvement with CKTZ goes back nearly 15 years and remains a regular routine.

Nuevo Malibu 11: Gone with the Apocalypse

In Nuevo Malibu 11, our time-and-space-traveling crew of earthlings Doctor Shay Watt? and lovable rascal Clell Landis, along with Narrator and Mack, a subliminal being that communicates through holograms, revisits the planet Dinner and a Double Feature. Image courtesy Nuevo Malibu Nuevo Malibu 11: Gone with the Apocalypse After a sumptuous banquet of ostrich egg omelettes,Mack, Landis and the Doctor climb into fantasy pods to live out a mash-up of “Gone with the Wind”and “Apocalypse Now”.  Narrator, a disembodied voice, tags along with the Doctor, who morphs intoFuchsia, a Southern belle working in an Atlanta brothel during the Civil War.  She has a certain skill that attracts Captain Villard, Landis’s character.  Villard has been sent to terminate Colonel Bluntz, a rogueConfederate officer who commands a group of ragtag war veterans deep in the Georgia woods that reads poetry and drinks a tea made of some sort of wild weed.  After a rousing demonstration of Fuchsia’s skill, Villard begins his search for Bluntz.  Fuchsia returns to her pillaged plantation, where her trustedBritish servant Nanny tells her they are nearly out of food. Fuchsia decides that she must find her husband Rhadd, who has joined Bluntz’s bedraggled troops.  She and Nanny stow away on a river boat helmed by Quint, a ne’er-do-well who knows where Bluntz is. Fortunately for the sake of the plot, Villard is also aboard the boat.  When Quint meets a tragic but comical end, Fuchsia, Nanny and Villard continue on upriver and find Bluntz.  Rhadd is indeed there, but Bluntz won’t let Rhadd leave until he completes his mytho-poetic manhood training.  Fuchsia bests Bluntz in a haiku slam...

The Cortes Island’s Free Store

The Cortes Island’s Free Store

What is it? When Will it One? And What would it take to make the Free Store more Resilient for the Future? This program is a joint Folk U/Cortes Currents project funded by the Community Radio Fund of Canada and the Government of Canada’s Local Journalism Initiative.  Are you thinking and wondering about the Free Store? If you live on Cortes island, the answer is probably yes. Are you drowning in stuff, or down to two bowls in a household of four people? Every week, there are new theories as to what happened to the Free Store: where it went, what will take to get it back, and also exciting possibilities to use the Free Store model to grow Cortes Island: for keeping resources local, making better use of what the island has and reducing the amount of stuff shipped off Island. Noba Anderson, our SRD (Strathcona Regional District) elected representative joins us to discuss the history of the Free Store, its organizational (or non organizational structure), and what it would take if Cortes residents wanted to grow the Free Store or expand its operations in the future. Lori-Anne then joins to discuss what the Free Store reopening plan looks like in practice. The Cortes Island Free Store story In short, the Cortes Island Free Store story goes like this: the Free Store has become a beloved island resource that is far more than a Share Shed or a junk heap but is our ReUse Centre, Thrift Store, and Boutique all in one. However, the Free Store is an anomaly that is allowed by the SRD but isn’t licensed, regulated, or overseen by any actual organization. Therefore, nothing...

Mixtapes

Jonesy’s passion for mixtapes harkens back to the cassette era. She loved compiling collections for friends, or having them introduce her to a new artist. Jonesy never dreamed of playing mixtapes over the radio until coming to Cortes Island. Mixtapes January 21, 2021 Mixtapes Aug 25, 2020: Wild LIfe Mixtapes Aug 13, 2020: Taking It. Mixtapes June 11, 2020: This Too Shall Pass Mixtapes May 28, 2020: Facing The Strange Mixtapes April 30: Ode to Radio Mixtapes April 16, 2020: My Church Mixtapes April 9, 2020: Gimme Shelter A Remote Island Off The West Coast “We’re on this little remote island off the West Coast and, through the radio, we get a chance to connect with people world wide,” says Jonesy. Prior to 2003, Jonesy had been a middle school teacher in Winnipeg. Her partner, Monica, initiated the move after attending a course at Hollyhock. She knew this was something Jonesy must do and, without asking, signed her up for the Spring Term. Jonesy describes her first experience of Cortes as just like “coming home.” She and Monica quit their jobs and sold their house in Winnipeg. Sample podcast: Playing Mixtapes Over The Radio Jonesy with her dog They started listening to Cortes Community Radio. Monica told Jonesy, “This is something you should get involved with.” This idea did not come to fruition until after Jonesy became a teacher at Cortes Island Elementary. Around 2008, she and a couple of friends took turns producing a show called “Still Thinking.” This led to Jonesy’s embarking on a show of her own the following year. She explained, “Mixtapes gave me permission...
