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.
