Cory and Chris lose their urge to smash things and manage to play a steady mix of old and new tunes from a variety of styles – like Thunderheist’s crazy electronic dancey whatever that is.
Luckily, Cory didn’t break the CJTR feed last week so here we come again.. another Tuesday night, another Operation Manatee coming for your ear-holes!
Last week we got a little electronic-happy. Not that it’s a bad thing, but too much electro makes Cory something-something… every intent was being prepared to bring the hammer down this week, to be loud, abrasive and unashamed!
But that’s not likely about to happen. Tune in tonight (or tomorrow’s recording) to find out just how it all mashes together!

GOOD NEWS everyone! My recording last night didn’t break the internet nor did it break the CJTR signal. So in case you missed Operation Manatee, episode 2, you can now listen to it here:
Operation Manatee – Episode 2
So now if you’ve missed the show because “we’re on too late” or “I have to get up early on Wednesdays” or “I don’t know how to work tech-mologies”… here you go!
In this show, Cory and Chris play a selection of hard-hitting, ear-bleeding rock like Grade 8 to modern hip hop such as Cadence Weapon and dubstep from Borgore. Also, Cory laments a little over the loss of a band.
Yes, yes, we’re back! Every Tuesday night from 11:00 PM to midnight, Chris and Cory will lead you on a small musical journey through some of our favorite songs to some new hits to some just plain, weird noises.
This week will be an experiment. We’ve always wanted to try to record the show so those of you who aren’t night owls can listen as well. There might be a breakthrough and we’re not sure if it will work in glorious fashion or take down the whole radio station. You’ll have to listen to find out!
……or of course, if it works, then listen later… (cough).

Last night, I saw a tweet across my Twitter feed from the wonderful Eric Alper (@ThatEricAlper) that read;
No Doubt are back in the studio working on their next album. They plan to postpone some of their 2013 touring so they can record new tunes.
Firstly, if you have Twitter and you’re a music fan that ISN’T following Eric you need to give your head a quick shake. Then find the follow button. That man is genius and posts a ton of useful industry related news, high in Canadian content as well.
But for the crux of my post: I saw this tweet and the first thing that I immediately thought of is “Wow, that’s pretty cool. There will be new No Doubt later this year.” I turned off my phone and rolled back over in my bed. But as I’m prone to do while trying to fall asleep I began to over-think this tweet and it began to bum me out. Postponing their tour to record new music ultimately pushes out content, which drives up revenue. AND it’s probably easier to control your recording times than to spend time on the road, interacting with your fans and spreading your message and music.
The last thought I had made me sad… essentially, I feel that No Doubt is going back to squirrel away in a recording studio because it’s easier and more profitable to record new music instead of being with your fans. And new music is awesome, but postponing a tour to do this feels selfish.
MANATEES….. IN….. SPAAAAAAAACE!
Yes, if you’re a science buff, you can get a little rush from the rest of the explanation here, but in the meantime, there’s a neat comparison picture of this nebula and our favorite sea creature.
Here we go again! Another opportunity to listen to Operation Manatee on 91.3 CJTR, Regina Community Radio! This time we’re filling in from 11am to noon tomorrow (Sunday), January 27.
I can think of few better ways that to get up on a Sunday morning, relax with a cup of coffee of your favorite flavor and get started with your day, the Operation Manatee way!! There are three ways to listen… tune your knob to 91.3 FM in the Queen City, stream online from www.cjtra.ca or find an app on your mobile device and listen in (TuneIn from the Apple App Store carries CJTR).
Quickly checking in with a little video to pop with your peepers. The song isn’t terrible here… little dub-stepping so you’re warned. But the video clips are really cool and it fits with the theme of the song.
The little skateboarding boy in the middle is fantastic! You’ll see what I mean.
Well… it’s not the “official” beginning of Operation Manatee on 91.3 CJTR, but it’s going to be a sneak preview of sorts!
Chris and I will be “filling in” on 91.3 CJTR tomorrow evening, Saturday, January 19 from 6-8 pm. Yes… I will be voluntarily giving up time I could be watching a hockey game, but we’ll be testing out the format ideas that will eventually become the finalized Manatee project!!
If you’re out of town, remember, you can stream CJTR on your computer at www.cjtr.ca or if you have an i-Device thingy, you can find CJTR on an app called “TuneIn”. I know nothing more of apps for other devices…
I’M SO EXCITED I COULD WET MYSELF!!! MAYBE I’LL DO THAT ON AIR!!! YOU’LL HAVE TO TUNE IN TO HEAR!!!!
This song has been getting me in the mood like MAD lately! Hopefully we’ll be coming soon to CJTR in Regina to pass on our favorite music to everyone!
