Yup, on a Saturday afternoon April 5th 2014 CKUT and Rickey D Events (still bringing you those slow jams every Sunday night on the Sound of Soul  midnight – 1am) put on a lecture unlike any the Stephen Leacock Auditorium at McGill University had seen before.

For one – there was a dj there.  Thanks to Pro-V (All Day Way Live Radio Wednesdays 3 – 5pm) on CKUT.

Perhaps the biggest event the station has every held?  It involved a number of new challenges.  Like how do you promote a lecture by a hip hop artist?

How do you deal with online tickets?

The event was hosted by Stephen “Zip” Hennesey (host of Ill Groove Garden Sunday night 11pm – midnight on CKUT).

And we pretty much packed the place.

Gza was Generous.  He read a prepared speech that connected the dots between chess, physics, being relevant, hip hop, love, the meaning of life and more.

A bunch of people lined up to ask questions.
