Can you see what’s coming on the horizon? Why… it appears to be… yeah, it might just… I think…
This weekend is the first big event that makes me feel that summer is actually happening in the city. It’s the annual Cathedral Village Street Festival on Saturday and come rain or sun (sometimes, even snow) it’s the first big thing that I look forward to and really embrace the beginning of the season.
Plus, it’s the time of year that the big releases start to fall, getting in some airplay before the coveted “song of the summer” is crowned. So tune in at 11 on 91.3 FM, CJTR in Regina and we’ll begin covering some of those new tracks.

Some things are just super cool to look at, even though they may not have anything to do with aquatic life or even the majestic manatee. Like space… space is super cool!
In fact, true story*, if the show wasn’t called Operation Manatee, it would have been named “I Dream of Cassini” and have been a talk show just coming up with random thoughts while watching videos of space related videos. Like a Deep Thoughts but strictly inspired by asteroids and comets.
However the pomp and majesty of the great sea cow won out in the end and the rest, as they say, is history. Tune in at 11:00 pm to continue to listen to history being made on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca.
*Not ACTUALLY a true story. At least not one we would tell under oath or repeatedly for fear of confusing the “facts”.

With all the good that spring can bring, there’s also a lot of bad. Today’s lesson; the plague hides itself in the snow and ice all winter long and at first availability, will run rampant through the world that has freed it from it’s icy prison.
So hopefully you’re one of the lucky few that hasn’t caught any of the Spring Crud that is floating around. The first cold always seems to be the hardest to shake and easiest to spread. Take care and if you’re able, remember the best cure is good music and warm company. Tune in tonight at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina and you can get a little of both!

With all due respect to Christmas, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year!
The sun is shining when you go to work and the temperature outside isn’t life-threateningly low. In fact, the sidewalks are clearing and there’s water dripping from everywhere. Soon, there might even be some green plants within view.
