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, musicContinue reading “Operation Manatee Presents Regina Folk Fest Survival Guide 2016”
Coming up with this list is always hard. You’ve seen how much good music makes it under my radar in a year. Paring it down to 5 means leaving out heaps of really good music. Alas, it must be done (actually, it doesn’t – I’m clearly doing this for fun). Keeping in the spirit ofContinue reading “Operation Manatee Music Prize: Top Five Albums of 2015”

It’s nighttime. You’re still up. Not feeling like going to bed yet. Maybe it’s video game time. Maybe it’s up with friends time. Maybe it’s close to midnight and you’ve just had your fourth coffee for the evening. Whatever keeps you up tonight, be sure to tune into Regina Community Radio from 11:00 to midnight.
The Regina Cathedral Arts Festival Street Fair has come and gone which now means one thing… IT’S SUMMER!! Well, not “officially” I guess, but we at OpMan have always used the RCAFSF as the unofficial start to all the fun summer activities that Regina has to offer. First up… Regina Multicultural’s MOSAIC 2015 with yourContinue reading “Operation Manatee #112: Third Annual Mosaic-atee!”
We here at Operation Manatee recognize that it is only May, however there seems to be a disconnect between what we expect in “May weather” and what we’re being given by the grand harlot of the trees… Cory has always said that in a world of druthers, he’druther it be cold because you can alwaysContinue reading “Operation Manatee #111: All I Can Say, My Life is Pretty Plain…”
Hey everyone, Apologies for the later notice, but tonight’s Operation Manatee will be postponed until next week, due to WILD plague conditions ripping through the streets, tearing away FLESH and eating our BRAINS… Or you know… terrible allergies… they feel about the same. We’ll be back next week for your musical tastes and needs. HugsContinue reading “Apologies Fan-atees!”
Man… cocaine is a hell of a drug… I feel like I’ve lost the last two weeks… Wait a second… I DID lose the last two weeks… But to be fair, last week wasn’t REALLY part of a coke-fuelled binge through the south-eastern US of A. No, the vast majority of the night was spentContinue reading “Operation Manatee #106: Lessons in Containing the Plague”
Just when you thought you’d had enough of us. Do we quit? Do we just lie down? Do we leave the community radio programming to one of the other several dozen perfectly capable CJTR programmers? Hell no! We keep going. In the face of all odds, this is your one and only Operation Manatee. Tune inContinue reading “Operation Manatee #102: TWO YEAR MANATIVERSARY!!!”
