Quebec-based online radio station Punk Rock Radio.ca kicks ass. They started in 2017 with an idea carried by pure DIY spirit and have only gotten stronger since then. Along with playing a rotating mix of new and old punk music 24/7 on their website, they also broadcast original shows and podcasts throughout the week including the Punk Rock Show du Matin hosted by co-owner Pierre-Luc Thiffault, the Big Bro Show hosted by station founder and co-owner Christophe Brochu, Sewer Spewer hosted by Chris Aitkens of Gutser, and Le P'tit Moment Trash hosted by Claudia Bo. They truly have something for everyone no matter what kind of punk you like to listen to and they strive to uplift their local scene as much as they possibly can.
Punknews editor Em Moore caught up with Christophe Brochu over Zoom to talk about the history of Punk Rock Radio.ca, building community through punk, the importance of having fun, the Quebec punk scene, and so much more. Read the interview below!
