Featured Programs

Music From The North Shore

Fridays at 7pm

Music From The North Shore with host Greg Gardner will jog your musical memories with pioneers of ’50s rock ‘n’ roll, such as The Everly Brothers and Gene Vincent. Sixties pop from The Animals to The Zombies and everything in between, including rarities by The Beatles and others, along with insightful tidbits of information about the music and artists. You’ll also hear local Manitoba musicians, and be treated to splashes of instrumental “surf” music by innovators like The Ventures and Dick Dale. If you don’t catch the song name or who who performed it for one of the selections you heard on the program, after each broadcast Greg posts his playlist on his Music from the North Shore Facebook page – where you can also take part in the dialogues that occur on Sunday nights while the show is on the air. If you’d like to influence a future playlist, you can email your request to Greg.

Dick Clark’s Rock Roll and Remember

Saturday at 8pm

Join the late Dick Clark for Rock Roll and Remember! The show features the music and memories of your lifetime, presented by the incomparable Mr. Clark – famed for bringing rock and roll to the masses through hosting American Bandstand.

With hits from the 1950s, 60s, 70s and beyond, this truly is the music of your lifetime. Each week features a profile of a selected artist, a run down of the songs that were topping the charts way back when, and a look at some of the events that made that made the headlines in that particular week.

So sit back, and enjoy the tunes that truly take you back – in the company of ‘the world’s oldest teenager’!

The Original Big Band Showcase

Sunday at 6pm

‘The Original Big Band Showcase’ with Denny Farrell (left) features the music of the big bands of the 1930s, 40s, 50s and the great big bands of today. Denny has a long history of broadcasting in his very distinctive format that combines Swing, Sweet, Dixieland and Jazz. He brings to his broadcasts an understanding of, and affection for this great music.

Rated as one of the top broadcasters in America, Denny was honoured with the National Ballroom and Entertainment Association’s ‘2001 Award of Excellence’ for The Original Big Band Showcase. Denny Farrell was inducted into the Big Band Hall of Fame on February 5, 2003 in West Palm Beach, Florida. He’s one of only three announcers to ever receive this honour.

Denny’s background is like a who’s who in the Big Band/Jazz industry. Announcing chores have tied him to such greats as Count Basie, Tony Bennett, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Sammy Kaye, Bob Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Ralph Marterie, Harry James, Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, Guy Lombardo, Maynard Ferguson, Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Red Norvo, Helen Forrest, Peggy Lee, and Artie Shaw to name only a few.

Malts, Mustangs & Memories

Sunday at Noon

You don’t need to be sitting in a fastback Mustang, or sipping on a chocolate malt to feel like you are back in time. Start off your week, with great memories every Sunday at noon with Tom Dercola. When the clock strikes 12, for three hours, we turn it back, to all your favorites, The Doo-Wop of the 50s like The Platters, The Diamonds, and The Crew-Cuts. The 60s, those old-time pioneers of rock and roll like Chuck Berry, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and so many more. We even dip into the 70s to keep you feeling that Saturday Night Fever on a Sunday afternoon, and make you want to do the hustle, and the best of the adult contemporary 80s. And let’s not forget the soulful sound of Motown to soothe yours, with artists like Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and The Temptations.

We keep you moving, and grooving, slow dancing, and reminiscing for two hours. We not only play great music but we provide some facts on those songs and where they stood on the charts. We give you the scoop on what’s going on in your community and the chance to win contests for those special community events.
