Operation Manatee #6: Junos, Japan, Juicy Jabberwocky!

This week, Cory and Chris talk a bit about and play tracks related to the 2013 Junos in Regina. They also manage to include a Nine Inch Nails cover by Devo.

With the Junos recently passed, we figured it might be nice to give an appropriate nod to the long-time Canadian award and music series. After fighting over which Beebs tune is the best, we pared down a few Juno-related favs that we think you’ll enjoy. We also agreed on a few ground rules including the following:

1. No Beebs tune is better than another.
2. No Beebs tune should be played on OpMan.
3. No Operation Manatee host will be able to stop the other from playing Beebs if he is away.

It wont all be about that, though. There will be a strong collection of the usual fun things. Kind of like that CD you have – you know the one – that fell behind your CD shelf and has been housing a family of spiders for the last 8 years, and you forgot it existed, but when you found it you were all like, “HOLY CRAP! I remember this! This is the best CD I ever owned! I need to listen to this RIGHT NOW or my head will explode!”

Stuff like that.

Tune in tonight from 11:00 to midnight or we will broadcast NUDE! Wait…… no.

Operation Manatee #5: Three Decades Ago…

This week, Cory makes fun of Chris on his 30th birthday, even though Cory is an old man. Also, you get to hear Pennywise and Chromeo in the same show!

It’s somebod-eeeeeee’s BIIIIIRRRRRRRRTHDAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!

Join us tonight as we go live from 11:00 pm to midnight on 91.3 FM in Regina or use whatever means necessary (ie, see “How Can I Listen?” section).

Yes, it is Chris’ actual birthday today. We won’t dwell too much on the birthday shenanigans, but send him some congratulations on turning the big 3-0 either by commenting here or tweeting him @carliermusic. IT’LL BE A PARRRR-TAY!

Operation Manatee #4: “Spring” Fresh Tracks

Zombies in April? Cory and Chris keep it fairly heavy in this show including stuff like Rob Zombie & White Zombie, spicing it up with Sublime and even some Joel Plaskett.

Wow! It’s later in the day to be writing a blog post about something “fresh”…

Operation Manatee will be back this evening at 11:00 pm for your aural pleasures! I know I’m always pleased… pleasured… um… happy?

But whatever your status, tune in later tonight to hear some new tracks just in time for the spring to summer rush; new Queens of the Stone Age, new The Transplants and yes… new Rob Zombie as well!

Operation Manatee #3: Feeling (S-)Mashy

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!

Operation Manatee #2: In which Cory mourns a piece of his youth…

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.

Image

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).

Operation Manatee takes over Regina Community Radio!

Man Man
Man Man

That’s right, Regina. When things go wrong and it seems like the world is coming to a brutal, horrible, community radio-less death, they call us: Operation Manatee – and while we may not save the world, we will at least save you from pop radio.

Chris and Cory have lined up a batch of great music (mostly new rock, some electro, little bit of weirdness and other selections)! It’ll be spectacular!

We’ll be making our radio debut (at least, as Operation Manatee) filling in for The Conductor in Black (The Prairie Lilly Special) from 6:00 to 8:00 tonight. Be sure to tune in and turn it up! Continue reading “Operation Manatee takes over Regina Community Radio!”
