Operation Manatee Music Prize: Top 5 Albums of 2021

A little later than I was planning, but please allow me to present to you: the Operation Manatee Music Prize: Top 5 Albums of 2021!

Not unlike 2020, this year had so much great new music, it was mindblowing! I have never listened to more new music in my life than during this damned pandemic! Thanks to all the artists who turned it up while the world tried to figure out wtf to do with life. You have made this shitstorm slightly more bearable.

Hey we’re back.. back again!

We meant to find our way back to the station a week ago, but it was just so cold… holiday hibernation had to last one week longer.

But we’re gracing the airwaves with our first new show of 2022 tonight at 11:00 pm (CST)! Remember, it’s 91.3 FM if you’re in range of Regina or http://www.cjtr.ca if you wanna listen online!

Ok, this one isn’t totally our fault! Obviously, the Gods of the Old Country have decided to let loose the snow and wind of the norths and pelt our province with our first snow storm of the season. ‘Tis not fit for man nor beast nor elder God…

Plus… last we checked… the station’s power is also out…

Take care tonight and stay warm! We’ll be back next week, weather forboding!

Off Practicin’

We are off tonight due to last minute practicing and jamming as Chris’ side-hustle, The Lincoln Loggers, get ready for their triumphant return to live performances tomorrow night! You should go and see them!

Wednesday, November 10 at Bushwakker. Guaranteed shots on Chris!!*

*Not an actual guarantee…maybe…depending how many shots he’s had first…
