Plain A.I.R: an artist residency on live radio!
Regina, SK – Who says that an artist’s studio, scientist’s laboratory or musician’s venue needs four walls? 91.3FM CJTR Regina Community Radio is excited to announce a new artist-in-residence radio program called Plain A.I.R., a live radio “space” that encourages creative expression and experimentation.
Each month Plain A.I.R. features a new local artist, DJ, musician, band or community member as a guest host who programs a month’s worth of live, weekly radio shows. The program airs Saturday afternoons from 2-4pm on 91.3FM in Regina, on-line at cjtr.ca, via our free mobile app, and on channels 700 on Access and 806 on Sasktel.
The January edition of Plain A.I.R. will be hosted by Soft Pawz (Amber PB and Jeff Meldrum) and highlights independent and lesser-represented artists and bands, while providing a diverse array of musical stylings. Each week will feature two “wild card” songs that have animal references.
About Soft Pawz: Jeff is a musician, outdoorsman, charcutier and aspiring conceptual astronaut born and raised in Regina Saskatchewan. Amber is a musician, maker, shaker, and meditator. She specializes in spatial navigation, edible headwear and clowning around. Amber and Jeff are both steady contributors to Canada’s independent arts and music community. They host regular concerts for small touring bands in their home in North Central Regina. Together they share tender affections for good bass lines, breakdowns and furry four-legged creatures, particularly of the feline and canine persuasion.
Plain A.I.R. dramatically increases community access to CJTR’s airwaves among local artists, musicians and community members. Plain A.I.R. also provides CJTR listeners with an opportunity to hear unique live performances, radio plays, conversations and to garner information about local culture from those who make it.
