At the head of the class among campus radio stations is listener-supported CIUT (www.ciut.fm).
On the news side, The Mainline (Monday 3 to 4 pm) covers health issues; Animal Voices (Tuesday 11 am to noon) offers interviews with activists and academics on animal-related issues; Sex City (Saturday 5 to 6 pm) concerns itself with the relationship between sexuality, art, politics and culture via readings, music and more kind of like giving your brain head.
For a big dose of world music from all four corners, No Man's Land (Wednesday noon to 2 pm) offers everything from ancient musical traditions to contemporary styles and progressive ideas. If too much didgeridoo over drum and bass makes you dizzy, there's Blissful Thunder (Thursday 1 to 2 pm) for keeping track of the next Broken Social Scene. Or whatever.
On the more avant-garde side is the syndicated Some Assembly Required (Saturday 5 to 6 am), where, if you're able to get up after a big, boozy Friday at the Brunny, you'll hear audio works and collages made from appropriated media sounds deconstructed through tape manipulation, digital fuckery and turntable turntablery.
There's hiphop care of Project Bounce (nightly from midnight to 4:30 am), 50s and 60s soul and R&B on Pass The Dynamite (Tuesday 7 to 8 pm), 60s psychedelia and early prog on Dementia 13 (Monday 6 to 7 pm) and old-time jazz and blues on Sugar Foot Stomp (Thursday 5 to 6 pm). So chances are there's at least one thing you won't sneer at.
