Operation Manatee #273 – Great Success

Can you see what’s coming on the horizon? Why… it appears to be… yeah, it might just… I think…

IT’S SUMMER!

This weekend is the first big event that makes me feel that summer is actually happening in the city. It’s the annual Cathedral Village Street Festival on Saturday and come rain or sun (sometimes, even snow) it’s the first big thing that I look forward to and really embrace the beginning of the season.

Plus, it’s the time of year that the big releases start to fall, getting in some airplay before the coveted “song of the summer” is crowned. So tune in at 11 on 91.3 FM, CJTR in Regina and we’ll begin covering some of those new tracks.

Operation Manatee #270 – Don’t Blow It

Awwww…. innnnnitddisspessshul?

But joking aside, it’s Chris’ birthday once again! The old man continues to get older, but the real mystery is; has he learned to act his age?

Is he like a fine wine, an aged scotch or a broken down jalopy?

Tune in tonight for more mild ribbing about age but more importantly, good music on your community radio station in Regina – 91.3 FM.

Operation Manatee #269 – What in the hell…

The plague has come full circle and now captured Chris in it’s icy hands! Soon, it will be only Plague… Plague be with you…

So… where does that leave the show tonight? Well, it’s going to be weird. Time for another last minute theme night! Tonight… a full hour of CHIPTUNE MUSIC! That’s right, your favorite electronic beeps and boops from the machines of the 80’s playing music for you.

Tune in at 11:00 pm tonight on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca

Operation Manatee #268 – The Great Beyond

Some things are just super cool to look at, even though they may not have anything to do with aquatic life or even the majestic manatee. Like space… space is super cool!

In fact, true story*, if the show wasn’t called Operation Manatee, it would have been named “I Dream of Cassini” and have been a talk show just coming up with random thoughts while watching videos of space related videos. Like a Deep Thoughts but strictly inspired by asteroids and comets.

However the pomp and majesty of the great sea cow won out in the end and the rest, as they say, is history. Tune in at 11:00 pm to continue to listen to history being made on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca.

*Not ACTUALLY a true story. At least not one we would tell under oath or repeatedly for fear of confusing the “facts”.

Operation Manatee #266 – It’s Happening!

With all due respect to Christmas, THIS is the most wonderful time of the year!

The sun is shining when you go to work and the temperature outside isn’t life-threateningly low. In fact, the sidewalks are clearing and there’s water dripping from everywhere. Soon, there might even be some green plants within view.

Even though it’s technically still winter, it’s a wonderful spring week! Come join in the fun tonight at 11:00 pm as we play some spring shanties to get you flinging around the room. 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca.

Operation Manatee #264 – A Request Show

Cory joined community radio as a way to fight off a scary report he once read about a person’s developing tastes in music. In short, the study found that once you hit your early 30’s, your taste in music is cemented and you resist anything new. Scared by this, he made it a personal mission to continue to keep looking for new songs and artists that he could appreciate.

Taking an opportunity since Chris is out of town for the evening, Cory opened up a request for some of the listener’s favorites. Music is best shared among friends! Tune in at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina to hear what kinds of songs were suggested.

Operation Manatee #263 – The Shovel Cometh

It’s hard to tell if anyone else is keeping track, but it seems like winter just shows up later and later each year. We’re teased around the holiday, but once the joy and mirth of the season has passed, we get buckled down and snowed under… with winds and cold. It can be a real bummer.

But we have just the cure for the hohums and the doldrums. Tune in at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca and listen to some great songs and some good company.

Operation Manatee #262 – This Again?

Someone must have reminded Mother Nature it was winter still because the last few days have been pretty darn frosty.

What do you think is worse; is it a dry, freezing cold? Is it the wind that brutalizes the prairies? Is the seeping chill of a wet BC cold even worse? Either way, let’s not complain when it gets warm again.

But we can all agree that community radio always makes it hot. So tune in tonight at 11:00 pm in Regina on 91.3 FM or online at www.cjtr.ca.

Operation Manatee #261 – Salut!

It’s another wonderful Tuesday in January and we’re back for another week of music and hijinks! But they might be lowjinks… it’s hard to say at this point. We might might need to compromise somewhere around middlejinks.

Tune in at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca!
