Dirty Work Turns Eight!

Dirty Work is celebrating eight wonderful years on the CJLO airwaves!  

CJLO is celebrating 20 years of existence in 2018!

To commemorate these milestones, Dirty Work will be airing a 20-part series of classic and current interviews with artists, bands and other interesting folks over the next few months, leading up to our 20th Anniversary celebration. We are digging into the vault to bring you some of the best conversations ever had on Dirty Work through its eight-year run.  


CJLO Begins Metal March

It's March, and here at CJLO that can only mean one thing... it's Metal March.

What is Metal March, you ask? Well, we at CJLO play a lot of metal. By "a lot" I don't mean "we have a 3 hour show at 1AM on Saturday." No, I mean we have 8 hours of strictly metal shows and 7 additional hours of loud programming a week. Our top 30 charts every week usually consists of a minimum of 20% metal or loud bands. So yeah, we play a lot of metal.


New Electronic Music Director!

Help us in welcoming CJLO's newest RPM (Electronic) Music Director, Holden, to the team! You might recognize his program, Multiple Tabs, which features only the most underground and boundary-pushing electronic music.

Say hello to him in person this Saturday, March 3rd at HELM Microbrasserie where DJ Multiple Tabs will be providing the soundtrack to your night from 11pm - 1am for Nuit Blanche!


Concert Review: "This Isn’t About the Perfect Black T-Shirt" - Porches & Girl Ray @ Théâtre Plaza, Feb. 18, 2018

It seems to be my thing to go to concerts of bands that I’ve never heard of before. This has been my third time taking part in this tradition and by far it has been the best one. Going into this, I was really expecting lo-fi, chill indie vibe-y music that the crowd would sway back and forth too. I wasn’t wrong, but I was definitely missing a significant part of the concert.

Barn Burner Interview on Grade A Explosives

Obviously, Montreal is a mecca for all types of music, and metal is no exception. But all bands don't come out of huge cities, so how do these bands form and what happens after they break? If these are questions you've thought about, then this Sunday, Feb 25th you should tune in to Grade A Explosives from 4-6pm where the director of the documentary Barn Burner: The Rise of the Lancaster Metal Scene, Tyler Horst, will be talking about the rise of metalcore in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
