Show #133 (I think) Playlist, etc. + Long-Play Wednesday

Fred Wesley and the J.B.’s – Damn Right I Am Somebody


You didn’t get blown away in the storm last night, did you? That was pretty wild for a short while.

Thank the music gods for the end of the month.

“Why?” You may ask. (Go ahead, ask.)

If for no other reason than sweet, wonderful Long-Play Wednesday!

Tonight, as we reflect on the marshmallow-like mammatus clouds of yesterday in Regina, plug in those headphones, or (if you can do so without being evicted) turn that old stereo way up, make yourself a nice cup of tea, tune out the rest of the world and enjoy 2 hours of vinyl records from my personal collection starting at 4:00 PM.

Show #132 (I think) Playlist, etc.


Happy Solstice!

Let’s soak up any sun we can get through the clouds today. Pour yourself a nice cup of your favourite tea, put on your good summer hat, set up camp with a lawnchair and a portable radio – or skip the hat and put on the headphones and let the good vibrations take you over.

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for the summer solstice edition of What Planet Is This?!

Show #131 (I think) Playlist, etc.

Oliver Jones


The best time of my week (and hopefully yours) is upon us.

I’ve mentioned numerously in the past that coming in and doing the show is a welcome reprieve from the real world out there, and I’ve got to say, after my few years at CJTR, it’s still a treat.

Just wanted to say that, is all.

Tonight, I’ve got a few new finds from this past weekend’s Community Radio Garage Sale along with some new and old favourites of mine. These include Professor Longhair, Oliver Jones, DJ Champion, Brian Wilson, Lyle Lovett And His Large Band…

Tune in from 4:00 to 6:00 for what is likely to be the best What Planet Is This?! of the day!
