(snicker) Boo-manatee…

(ahem) It’s the end of October… you know what that means!¬†Spooks and ghosts, zombies and vampires, yessir, it’s HALLOWEEN!

Technically… it’s only October 29… but since I believe in celebrating BEFORE an event instead of after we’re doing it tonight. Chris and Cory have a great hour lined up with some of our favorite Halloween inspired music – spooky songs and maniacal musicians.

Tune in tonight, 11:00 pm on 91.3 FM or by streaming at http://www.cjtr.ca.

Operation Manatee #12: All of the noise noise noise noise NOISE N-O-I-S-E!

Cory and Chris take things a little more laid-back this week, laying off the ultra-heavy stuff – and the acid.

If we’d thought this out a little better, we could have had a theme prepared for you tonight, but as it turns out, that’s hard to do once, let alone back-to-back. In case you missed last week’s Mosaic special, be sure to check out the podcast.

It’s better live though.

Tonight we’ll be giving you some of our favourite tracks. From cool new music to some long-time goodies. We assure you that pants will be worn throughout the duration of the program this time. Tune in from 11:00 to midnight.

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?

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.
