Operation Manatee #37: Snow-Mana-Tree (or one too many puns)

Look closely

 

It’s there… if you look closely… once you see it, you’ll never UNSEE it…

I’ll just throw this out there – we all dodged a bullet this week. If you listen and believe weather reports, we should all be snowed under and NOTHING should be functioning. But let’s face it… as Saskatchewanians, we’d just dig our way out and what would halt all activity in somewhere like Toronto would be just flakes beneath our boots.

That being said… I prefer less snow in my city and more on my ski-hills any time of the year. Especially now.

Tune in tonight though, as Chris and Cory play music SO HOT, it’s guaranteed** to melt all snow within a block of your radio. 91.3 FM in Regina!

 

**ok, not REALLY a guarantee… so send your hate mail to Chris…

Operation Manatee #36: Cory Survived, Chris Flied

ImageWow… what a week!

Apologies all around, as we missed the show last week. Of course, we gave you all fair warning and hopefully you went and took in the show at the Exchange last week as well. Alestorm ROCKED (well… plundered maybe) and TrollfesT and Gypsyhawk were wonderful surprises as well. We’ll have music from them in case you did miss out.

Tune in tonight! 11:00 pm at 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtra.ca > Listen Live.

Operation Manatee #33: Oh! The BOO-MANATEE!!!!

Image

(snicker) Boo-manatee…

(ahem) It’s the end of October… you know what that means! Spooks and ghosts, zombies and vampires, yessir, it’s HALLOWEEN!

Technically… it’s only October 29… but since I believe in celebrating BEFORE an event instead of after we’re doing it tonight. Chris and Cory have a great hour lined up with some of our favorite Halloween inspired music – spooky songs and maniacal musicians.

Tune in tonight, 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM or by streaming at www.cjtr.ca.

Operation Manatee #30: Save the Mana-tahtahs!

bikinitee

October is a special month, not just because we all get an excuse to load up on sugar over the course of it. October is widely associated as Breast Cancer Awareness month, where everywhere you look, you’ll see pink ribbons and various organizations raising awareness for Breast Cancer and funds for cancer testing.

While Breast Cancer can strike anyone, man or woman, as a man I’m much more concerned about the state of the women in my life. As such, we’re dedicating this episode of Operation Manatee entirely to women in music – all-women groups, women fronted groups, etc.

If you want more information about Breast Cancer or even just cancer in general, take a look at http://www.cancer.ca/en/?region=sk.

Operation Manatee #29: Radiothon Special or How I Learned to Stop Being a Snob and Just Enjoy Some Music

Image

 

Woah… wait a second… is Cory starting a blog post? Crazy… summer MUST be over now…

Tune in tonight at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or by streaming online at www.cjtr.ca to hear some stories. Chris and Cory aren’t young pups anymore… in fact, we’ve each been accused on more than one occasion (daily) of being old and stubborn. But how did we get this way?

Tonight, we delve into our pasts and histories to hear how music has formed our current tastes in a Radiothon special! Little more talky tonight, but we’ll have some great older songs to go along with our stories from aught-eighty-seven.

Cory sucks SLIGHTLY less…

Hey everyone,

Lazy-ass Cory here – I’ve updated all the shows with the links to the recordings. Yeah, I know, I know… it’s been a while… I’m going to blame the summer however and now that it’s finally over and dead, I’ll be back in the saddle and up to date.

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!

Image 

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!

Image

 

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!

Better Late than Never… Right?

Cory has been a bad, bad boy… well, mostly a lazy boy. 

I’ve been recording and updating the recorded shows, but I just haven’t uploaded them to our hosting site or link them here…

BUT… I have now!! Check out our Recorded Episodes page (up at the top of the home page) to listen to episodes 12 and 13. Tune in tonight for another new episode!
