Operation Manatee #10: So… That Means It’s Now Summer, Right?

Chris pines for summer and the music that tends to accompany it while Cory whips out some cook new tracks.

Is it summer yet?
Is it summer yet?

Like everyone else in the Regina area, I lept towards the barbecue at the first sign of warmth (-15 counts as warm, you know) this season. Now that it’s more or less perpetually warm enough to be standing out by the grill, and one decent explosion and new barbecue purchase later, I’ve been spending a lot of time by the grill – homemade margarita or whatever in-hand. I don’t know about you, but barbecuing just begs for music. Personally, I (Chris) will barbecue to anything from reggae or afrobeat to dubstep or hip hop, but I think most people in our neck of the woods would generally agree that barbecuing is best done with a little bit of heavy rock nearby. Something about meat and distorted guitars. I don’t know. It’s just great.

Even though we’re not on the air until 11:00 PM, don’t let that disuade you from firing up that grill and turning on some tunes. Time of day has little bearing on delicious grilled food or when you choose to listen to your favourite program on CJTR. Warm up that grill at 10:45 and start cooking with Operation Manatee from 11:00 to midnight.

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!”
