Sad news. CKLN FM in Toronto has had their licence revoked.
"Lawrence Lebo is a musical minimalist intent on framing American Roots music as its indivisible
subatomic pieces, in the case of Volume 3, blues, jazz, folk and western swing. Her approach is
deconstructive, an effort to strip away 50 years of interpretive veneer to expose the original genres in
their most basic forms. One could cast her as a musical theologian formulating her systematic theology
from the canon of American Music and not be far off of exactly how important." - C. Michael Bailey
CKLN-FM Toronto – Revocation of licence
In this decision, the Commission revokes, by majority vote, the broadcasting licence for CKLN-FM Toronto,
held by CKLN Radio Incorporated, as of 12 February 2011. In reaching this determination, the Commission
considered the serious and continuous nature of the licensee’s non-compliance with numerous regulatory
obligations, the station’s inability to institute the measures necessary to ensure ongoing compliance,
and the lack of confidence on the part of the Commission that such measures could or would be instituted
within a reasonable amount of time. The licensee must cease broadcasting on 12 February 2011, by no later
than the end of the broadcast day.
