In this show, Cory and Chris explore new territory. Cory is winging it, which makes him uncomfortable. Chris refuses to wear pants, which also makes Cory uncomfortable. They even played a couple of vinyl records. We’re not sure what vinyl is, but it’s heavy and Chris seems to like it.
First of all, thanks to Chris for the really nice post on Friday!
Second of all, yes… the inevitable has happened. The ball has become chained, the noose has become tightened… um, the goose has been cooked…? However else you want to say it, I am now hitched… I figure the mother of my daughter, the co-signor to all my loans and debts should also become my wife… the Sith to my Jedi (maybe… somedays…)
The point? I’ve been REALLY busy for the last 4-5 days and I’m not sure what kind of music I’ll manage to throw together for your listening enjoyment tonight. Come, tune in tonight at 11:00 pm and see just how scattered we can REALLY be!
With Chris out sick or fighting zombies or something, Cory fires it up at Regina Community Radio with some pop stuff, rock stuff, punk stuff and maybe even a soulful rendition of Ol’ Man River. Or maybe not.
The flu is a bitch… Being all “flu-y”… making people sick. Well, making Chris sick anyways. Cory will be venturing into unknown territory and delivering a solo episode of Operation Manatee tonight, from 11:00 to midnight.
What could happen? What could go wrong?? Famous last words or brash sensationalist statements to make you listen? Hey, if it works for Fox News it HAS to work for us, right?
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.
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!
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!
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).
That’s right, as long promised (threatened?), we @OpManatee have our own precious little piece of Heaven here on Regina’s best community radio station! Starting this very night from 11:00 PM to 12:00 AM, you can hear us play a no doubt riveting selection of some of our favourite tunes.
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!
