The Homegrown Radio Show
Welcome to the Homegrown Show, and I am your host, Hurricane Rena. The Homegrown show is a radio show played on CKTZ Cortes Island Community radio, 89.5 fm. It’s on from 1-3 Sunday afternoons and features local musicians from Quadra, Cortes, and Vancouver Island. A lot of Canadian music is played, songs that celebrate our unique lifestyle in the islands of the BC Coast and Western Canada in general. You can hear music on my show that you don’t often hear anywhere else, as well as poetry. The Homegrown show began celebrating our unique lifestyle in song during March of 2011, around the time of the super moon, closest the moon will be to the Earth in 27000 years.
If you live out of the area of Cortes Island Radio, or otherwise don’t recieve it live, you can opt in for subscription to get the Homegrown Show emailed to you each week. If there is a past Homegrown show that you would like to listen to, request it by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the catagory radio show, I provide links and information about the local musicians who’s songs I regularly feature on the Homegrown show.
This is the music I most often use to make the Homegrown show out of. A lot of this music is made by people who play at local festivals and dances in the islands of the BC coast. The music sold through this website pays a small commission which goes towards sponsoring the Homegrown show, these websites, and promoting Canadian independent music and poetry. The artists are fairly paid for their work through the distrubutor used on this site. Your support helps independent artists and helps uphold freedom of the media through community radio.
To donate towards sponsoring the Homegrown show, which costs 25$ per month, and is my intention to do with these websites in 2015, click here.
