Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative
Not for Profit Community Service Radio
CJNU Nostalgia Radio features easy listening music from a wide variety of musical genres. The core of our programming is popular hits from the 1940s through the '70s, but we also offer a generous sprinkling of light jazz favourites, big band music, classic country selections by artists such as Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves, as well as a few light classics. We also go beyond music every day with features such as Radio Classics, programs from radio's Golden Era heard Sunday through Friday evenings at 9:00 - and Boomertown, the program for Baby Boomers heard Saturday mornings at 8:00.

Two of the biggest hits of all time were recorded on July 24 - in 1938, Artie Shaw's “Begin the Beguine”, and in 1965, The Beach Boys' "California Girls". On July 26, 1942, Judy Garland and Gene Kelly recorded "For Me and My Gal" which was featured in a movie of the same name. In 1954, The Four Aces' song "Three Coins In The Fountain" hit #1. Other popular songs at the time included "Little Things Mean a Lot", Kitty Kallen - "Sh-Boom", The Crew Cuts - and "Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight" by The McGuire Sisters.
...the days before there were bookkeeping computer programs or even hand held calculators? Adding machines were large, somewhat complicated devices in offices.
