NCRC Closing Keynote
Rich Terfry (aka Buck 65)
Reception at 6/ Talk Starting at 7-9
Potter Auditorium, Dalhousie
6100 University Avenue
Born in raised in Mount Uniacke, Nova Scotia, 40 km north of Halifax, Rich was first exposed to rap music in the mid-1980s while listening to Halifax campus community radio station CKDU. CKDU then broadcast at only 33 watts, and he had to climb a tree in his yard to hear the station’s hip hop show on his radio. Fascinated by hip hop, the young Terfry taught himself how to rap, DJ, and, later, to produce records and eventually hosted the CKDU programs The Bassment and then later The Treatment Program.
Now Rich is returning to CKDU, and will be delivering the closing keynote speech of this year’s National Campus and Community Radio Conference, on June 10th.
