Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative
Not for Profit Community Service Radio
CJNU has just installed new digital equipment to send our broadcasts from remote locations, such as Winnipeg Harvest in December, to our central studio at Assiniboine Links. This digital equipment is full frequency range and stereo, whereas the old technology broadcast line was mono and limited to 5kHz. As a result, if you listen to CJNU.ca on the internet, you'll now hear CJNU in stereo, with full frequency response, 24 hours a day. Click on Listen Live in the left hand column to listen! Our broadcast signal at 93.7 FM is still mono. Why? Click here for the answer.
During the first week of December in 1956, songs riding high on the music charts included "Singing the Blues", by Guy Mitchell - and "Blueberry Hill", Fats Domino. In 1960, the musical “Camelot,” by Lerner and Loewe, opened on Broadway. In 1967, singer Jimmie Rodgers (Honeycomb, Kisses Sweeter Than Wine) was found in a car in Los Angeles, suffering from a fractured skull, the victim of a “mysterious assault”. He recovered, but his singing career was over.
...when you would see this on your TV screen for many hours a day - because the one and only TV station in Winnipeg was on the air for only a few hours a day? It took more than five years until there were two stations.
At 9:00 p.m. Sunday through Friday, tune in to hear the classic radio programs of yesteryear, the comedies, dramas, westerns, and variety programs that ruled the airwaves from the late 1930s until the early '50s. More
