Operation Manatee #248 – Pickin’ & Grinnin’ Radiothon Style

We love Radiothon! It’s one of our most favorite times of the year!

We hate country music! It’s like, the lowest form of strumming and whining that can be classified as a genre of music.

So what do these have in common? Well for our annual special Radiothon edition of Operation Manatee, we will devote our full hour to the country music genre.. for some reason or another. In fairness, we rarely play country during the show, so this gives us an excuse to try something a little (ok, A LOT) out of the ordinary.

Tune in at 11 on 91.3 FM in Regina, or online at http://www.cjtr.ca. And don’t forget to donate to Radiothon!

Radiothon Is On This Week

Regina Community Radio is running our annual fundraiser this week!

This means top-quality programming, with special shows all week, special guests, crazy formats, and heaps of fun!

Regina Community Radio is people-powered radio. I’ve (Chris) been volunteering at CJTR for 9 years now, and co-hosting Operation Manatee for just about 6 years – partly just because I like it, but partly because I believe community radio plays a big part in local culture! CJTR is present at virtually every local event because we have something to offer the entire community.

For one week, each year, we ask the community to give back. We even throw in some very cool perks to those to donate!

Call the Radiothon hotline at 306-525-7274 or head to CJTR.ca to donate securely online!

Thanks for your support and thanks for keeping music-lovers like me and Cory on the air, all these years!

Operation Manatee #247 – Together we Burn!

Well, summer’s over… call it, time of death; tonight.

At least we haven’t had any snow yet, knock on wood, like other cities nearby. It’s getting close though with it’s constant rain and near zero temperatures. Soon enough though, penguins will be sliding on the sidewalks and we’ll all be huddling over barrels.

In the meantime, let’s heat up the night with some great music and spicy commentary. Tune in at 11:00 pm tonight on 91.3 FM in Regina.

Operation Manatee #246 – Get the Memo

It’s getting chill in here, so put on all your clothes…

It’s a great time of the year! Children are no longer walking the streets with impunity and the weather is crisp. Not terribly cold just yet, but refreshing when you step out of the door. Tonight, there might even be frost, not that it will last too long.

Let’s all agree, we won’t judge the Pumpkin Spice Latte fans, or the guys that wear shorts into November or even that guy that walks around asking “Is it cold enough for you?”. It’s a great time of year to enjoy some ambiance and listen to some music! So join us, won’t you? 91.3 FM in Regina.
