Operation Manatee #20: Operation Fam-atee

With Chris still away, possibly in the hospital after a bear attack, Cory decides it’s a good idea to bring in his little brother to pick some tracks. And actually, it is!

Despite the requests of our hypothetical lawyers, we’re doing it anyways: Tonight, we have the first ever guest host of Operation Manatee. While Chris is still out of town (I hear he’s recovering from a malicious bear attack), Cory is proud to invite his own brother to join him in the CJTR station, Jordan!

We’re not exactly sure what will come of this, but I would expect a different tone than most other nights… obviously the sultry, smooth tones will be a little different, but Jordan brings the musical yang to Cory’s heavy ying… or something like that… We all know it’s hard to measure up the ying, but it’s always about how you can swing your yang.

Tune in tonight! 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or stream live on www.cjtr.ca

Operation Manatee #19: Satisfaction GWAR-anteed!

With Chris away on vacation, probably being mauled by bears, Cory is free to play stuff that Chris doesn’t like – like Gwar! Take THAT Chris, you bastard!

With Chris on holidays for a couple weeks, I now have free reign over the Operation Manatee switchboard and will get to play all those tracks that Chris is too scared to broadcast. Especially the original Scumdogs of the Universe, the Masters of All, GWAR!!

The Masters compel me to play their newest track… an homage to a fallen friend and new chapter in the legacy of all GWARkind!

Come join the other Slaves of YQR and listen in, 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM within the city reaches or at www.cjtr.ca to stream online. ODERUS COMMANDS YOU!!!

Operation Manatee #18: Summah, summah, summah-tIIIIiIIiIiiIIIIIIIme….

Well.. I admit, this one snuck up on me. So much so, that I didn’t have time to find a hilarious picture to encapsulate the wonderfully creative title of the post as well..

(crickets)

Is uh… this thing still on…?

(louder crickets)

As soon as that calendar hit July it seems like all our worries and cares just drifted away. It makes sense – we receive very little warmth during the year that we all want to go out and enjoy it. The sun is nice too… but since I’m prone to burn I much prefer the warm evenings to get outside and take in the brief summer months of Saskatchewan.

Come enjoy your evening with us, tonight at 11:00 pm as we walk you through some of our old timey favorites and maybe something nice and new. Cheers!

Operation Manatee #17: What’s Up With Stuff On The Radio?

What type of music do you like to listen to when tuned in to the radio late at night? Cory a Chris try to delve into the whats and whys of late-night radio and just end up playing a bunch of cool tracks for fun.

The Guest Bedroom
The Guest Bedroom

Welcome to Operation Manatee, very likely the only live radio you can hear from 11:00 to midnight in Regina on a Tuesday night. This week, we’re wondering what you’re listening for on the radio when it’s late. Do you like something a little louder to keep you awake? Something quite to keep the liquor headache down? Something weird? Obscene? Normal? Safe?

Let us know, below and tune in from 11:00 to midnight tonight so we can fight over your answer on the air or hold it up as the holy grail of answers from which future generations can learn and become better people.

Don’t forget to leave comments, or else, we will ask you again.

Operation Manatee #16: My Canadian Bits Are Tingling

Canada: it’s fuckin cool. This week Chris and Cory demonstrate why, in musical form.

Canada Guitar
Well, it was Canada Day yesterday. Not a big deal for some, a really big deal for others. Here at OpMan, we mostly just look at it as a good excuse to play a bunch of great Canadian music.

And why not? There’s no shortage of great Canadian music. CRTC requires that at least 33% of what we hear on Canadian radios is Canadian Content. Because of this, we often get lost in a sea of of perpetual aural sludge as stations quickly find out what sells and just play it on repeat because it’s easier than digging to find better music or more variety that isn’t as popular.

Thank everyone’s various gods for Community Radio! We’re lucky in Regina (like most major centers) to have an option that is far less guided by the pop charts and based much more on programmer’s eagerness to show off cool music that you may not have heard before.

Tune in tonight from 11:00 to midnight for a selection of Canadian music that you could not possibly hear anywhere else in Regina. We promise.
