MUN radio features bilingual Inuktitut, English show

September 5, 2018

A bilingual broadcaster at Memorial University of Newfoundland’s radio station has been spreading the music, stories, and language of Canada's First Peoples. NunaKakKaasimaju: First People, First Occupants is a radio show through which host Angus Andersen plays music and tells stories in both English and Inuktitut. “Living out here, hearing the mainstream radios, it's music you don't hear,” said Andersen, who is originally from Nain in northern Labrador. “The only time you hear a song or two is on National Aboriginal Day or Canada Day.” The show runs live Thursdays from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM, with Anderson playing music that is “all Innu, Inuit, Metis, First Nation, Greenland, Russia - any first people music I can find.”  CBC
