Working closely with the Music Department Coordinator, the Music Librarian and Music Volunteer Coordinator will work to promote local music and emerging artists both on-air and over the CKUT music blog, assist with the development of CKUT’s digital music library, and train new Music Department volunteers. As well, the individual in this position will work in collaboration with the Music Department Coordinator to curate, promote and develop the music department’s flagship collective program, New Shit. The individual will also package and distribute New Shit as a podcast, which will ideally solidify a process that CKUT can use for all of its programs. The candidate will also provide support for two other in-house programs: The Montreal Sessions, which is a two hour weekly radio show that is programmed by a different local curator (such as musicians, artists, promoters, record labels, or festivals) and If You Got Ears, which follows the same monthly-curator structure, but is focused on more avant-garde and experimental aesthetics. Finally, the position involves developing a plan to improve the integration and training of new Music Department volunteers.

Their responsibilities will include:

-Train and integrate new volunteers into the music department.

-Promote local music and emerging Montreal artists.

-Assist in the organization of music department fundraisers and Total Eclipse concert series.

-Help coordinate music video shoots in collaboration with TVM (McGill television station).

-Cover duties of the Music Coordinator during absences and/or vacations.

-Work with new and experienced volunteers to program the music department's collective show New Shit and promote it as a podcast.
