For the past two years, a radio collective called OWL, "Older Women Live," has been producing a monthly radio show that airs on CKUT, 90.3 FM in Montreal, McGill's community and campus station.
The OWLs are true trailblazers. The group's founders wanted to empower older women by giving them a voice in the media and demystifying technology, so they created their own show that addresses a wide range of issues - everything from interviews with politicians to pieces about travel to global justice issues, with music by local women and community announcements too.
You can tune in to the OWLs anytime by visiting www.ckut.ca (go to the archives & programming section and select the Hersay program from the second Wednesday of the month) or, if you're in the Montreal area, tune your dial to 90.3 on the second Wednesday of the month, from 6 to 7 p.m. The OWLs are always looking for more contributors too, if you are an older woman who is interested in participating, or if you would like advice on how to start a similar show in your area, write to the OWLs at owlradio (at) yahoogroups [dot] com.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
