Operation Manatee #292 – That’s a Wrap!

This is it! The last Operation Manatee of 2019! Another year is in the books (more or less) and we’re spending the last two weeks soaking in time with friends and family. You all should do the same!

But before you do, make sure you tune in for tonight’s show. And keep tuning in over the holiday season. Convert some friends into CEEJ-aholics and make sure you buy your 2020 CJTR memberships as soon as you can!

Have a happy and safe holiday season and we’ll be back on January 7 for another new year of Operation Manatee nonsense.

Manatee Sick Night

Hey everybody!

Unfortunately, Operation Manatee will not be heard in it’s entirety tonight due to lack of hosts. The changing weather patterns have rendered the mighty human organisms that power the show, utterly unable to entertain.

Tune in again next week, when hopefully all flu bugs will perish, in the desolate wastelands of the lower intestinal tracts.

Operation Manatee #289 – Dream of Tub

This time of year just seems right to open a bottle of wine or whiskey and relax in some steaming water. Oh hot tub… warmer of souls, breeder of algae, courtesan of the average Joe… wherever you are listening from tonight, hopefully, it’s in the warm embrace of your own chlorine cocktail.

Tune in at 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM in Regina or online at http://www.cjtr.ca worldwide, in whatever state of relax you may be. Chris and Cory will be here to help ease you into the night.
