A friend showed me a very cool online radio, with basically unlimited source of music, and now it’s the first thing I turn on when I get home=)
WeFunk is an award-winning weekly radio show held on Montreal’s CKUT 90.3, McGill University’s radio station since 1996 and online since 1999. The show is usually very light on talk as both DJs Professor Groove and DJ Static play a symbiotic mix of Funk, Soul, R&B and Rap, both old and new. The name of the radio show comes from the Parliament song “P-Funk (Wants to get funked up)”, in which WEFUNK is a fictional radio station broadcasting “directly from the Mothership, top of the Chocolate Milky Way, 500,000 kilowatts of P Funk-power.”
WeFunk expanded to include its own internet radio stream in 1999, becoming one of the oldest continuously operating radio streams on the internet, as well as one of the longest-running online radio shows. Since 2001, Apple has featured WeFunk in its iTunes radio directory, introducing the show to a large worldwide audience.
WeFunk was awarded “College Radio Show of the Year” in 2007 at the Stylus DJ Awards, a Canadian nation-wide urban music awards event. WeFunk was voted into the Montreal Mirror’s top 10 “Best Local Radio Show” lists in their annual “Best of Montreal” reader’s poll in 2009, 2008, 2006, 2005, and 2004. Esquire Magazine noted WeFunk for “grooves so gloriously nasty, they make James Brown look like Pat Boone”. The New Haven Advocate wrote, “If you’re looking for ‘brash funk hypeness, hip-hop deep in the pocket,’ screw the mainstream. This is it.” Fortune Magazine wrote, “WeFunkRadio.com is just totally beautiful!” Wired Magazine wrote that WeFunk “keeps us going strong”.
Long sets of great mixed music, old school style. Absolutely recommending to try out and I’m sure everybody will find something they like!=)
And off-course, small preview=)
