Mitchell Caplan � CHUO Radio, Ottawa

Mitchell Caplan
Mitchell Caplan isn�t just into broadcasting to play music that doesn�t make it to the top forty. He sees the issues of community development as being most integral to the role of campus radio. �True community does not mean the �drum and bass community� or the �hip hop community� or the �activist community�. Community is really all about bringing people together while crossing the borderlines that exist between various interests.� By doing a magazine-style program, Caplan is able to present stories of several different types and play music of various styles. This introduces a wide variety of people to new ideas and sounds, creating a true community that crosses all the lines. He does this by mixing themes together presenting segments that people normally would not have been exposed to.

Caplan has been involved in campus radio at CHUO 89 FM in Ottawa since 1991. Shortly after they went FM he began hosting CLICK HERE which airs Wednesdays at 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM EST. He covers the arts, socio-political issues and community events all within the same hour. The music played is varied, as he exposes several genres throughout each program. Caplan likes to challenge people and counts on their open mindedness. He�ll play electronica, experimental genres, folk and francophone music all within the same hour. Recently, he has interviewed underground writers like Jim Munroe and Todd Dill. He also featured activists who went down to NYC for the Republican convention, and music participants from Ladyfest Ottawa 2004, such as experimental musician Wendy Atkinson and punk rock aerobic-queens The Jezebels.
