Operation Manatee #278 – Tru Norf

It’s time we do a salute and remind ourselves of the kick-ass music that comes from the Mother Land. The true north, strong and free. The sonically crisp and unfiltered reverberation. Am I mixing up audio cues and beer jargon? I just might be…

Tonight, we have a show dedicated to just Canadian artists. Even though we’re officially a day late from our country’s 152nd birthday, it’s never too late to celebrate some hosers and posers. Tune in at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca.

Operation Manatee #277 – All That was Left

And at the end of it all… a lonely, little organ, just looking for a friend.
‘$50 or best offer’ was what the price tag read

Did you get a chance to visit the CJTR Garage Sale this passed weekend? We sure did. Prices were hot, selection was pretty good and there was ROOM TO BREATHE. This has been a rare commodity in the past.

Tonight, we recap and share our treasures from the dusty bins of the garage sale. We also get to review the long list for the Polaris Prize and look at what the upcoming summer may bring. Tune in at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at www.cjtr.ca

It’s nice outside… finally… like, really, really nice outside.

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.
