CKUWho :: Brain Drainer Radio

By Kaitlyn Emslie Farrell

Brain Drainer Radio is one of the more fresh shows on CKUW. Every Friday from 10:30pm to 12:00am, two pals Alex and Spencer, delightfully shove their taste down your throat just like the hotdogs they’re eating while answering these questions. Actually, let’s talk about hotdogs for a moment. They’re a simple food really, everyone knows how to cook them and where to buy them. They’re complex if we want to know exactly what they’re comprised of, but that’s not on our minds when we choose to indulge. We buy hotdogs because of their convenience, their simplicity, and their great taste (open to discussion). So, that about sums up Brain Drainer Radio, straight forward and effective, simple and delicious. Alex describes it as “two dum-dums chattin’ it up” and Spencer adds “with some punk in between.” And that’s all you need on a Friday night. Continue Reading »

On the first day of this calendar year that felt remotely like springtime, I met with the folk singing duo Haitia. Comprised of the beautiful and talented voices of Dana Waldie and Avery Penner, Haitia blends the harmonious charm of traditional folk music with a timeless depth of lyric. With both singers coming from homes of music teachers, Dana and Avery each found ways to express their musical prowess from a young age. Learning instruments from the harp to the piano, these two performers have had an ear and a passion for music for as long as either can recall. Continue Reading »
