Special Show Announcement! What Planet Is This?! Show #291

Hi all! Chris here.

I just wanted to let you know that I’m doing a special fill-in show today from 4:00 to 6:00!

Some of you may recall that I used to be on the air every Wednesday at this drive time, playing jazz, electronic, folk, funk, weird stuff…

Well, opportunity knocked and I answered the call!

Tune into Regina Community Radio (91.3 FM in Regina or the CJTR app around the world) today from 4:00 to 6:00 for this rare, special appearance!

Eaten Opiate Manor #4 + What Planet Is This?! Show #290

Whooooa! Could this be a Tossback Tuesday (a coin I termed, just now, without internet help)? It sure could be.

Ladies and gentlemen, back from the dead, for just one show only, because Cory won’t be there to defend the station, I present to you: a little taste of yesteryear…

I’m dusting off my summer hats, digging out my older, more festival-worn Birks, lining up my beads, stocking up on film, curating playlists, and just getting in the mood for the single most fun weekend in Regina!

This is the weekend I look forward to the most, every year. People are smiling and singing, music is playing, you’re out in the fresh air, with friends – new and old, no judgments are made. Yep. It’s pretty great. Don’t just go and expect the will of the universe to provide though (actually, you could probably get away with that, at this event)! Take these as handy tips to aid you in your delightful time.

Those who remember previous years’ Survival Guides (or those who don’t: 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012), know that traditionally, I’ve focused on the settlers. This one is for the nomads, so there are two categories below…
