As of May 2016 we have new summertime hours. We feel that our listeners would love to hear the amazing sets we have on air every week when they are driving to their favourite spot in town in your cars.
There is another reason for our change of time slot... The CRTC in Canada doesn't understand our show, the regulations stipulate that our show must contain at least 35% Canadian content. We feel very strongly about supporting our local Montreal talent as well as other Canadian DJ's from other provinces. We strongly believe that our show should be a platform for all, this is why we blend great local talents with amazing international guests.
Our belief is that when a Canadian DJ produces a mix it is inherently Canadian. Only the DJ producing the mix makes the decision of how he/she blends their tracks together, this is in our belief 'Canadian content'. For this reason, we decided to move our slot to midnight because this way the talent we host alongside Nicola Torriero no longer falls under the 'Canadian content regulations.
Most of all, for us all here at RIR, the importance it to continue to bring the best underground electronic music to your FM radio here in Montreal, we are the only show that brings you, the listener of our genre of music, on FM radio here in our magnificent city. So continue to listen, share and follow us all summer long.
