RADIO CLASSICS on CJNU

Your host is Ryan Osentowski

Join me Sunday to Thursday for a listen back to the great days of radio.

Venture back with me as I travel  in time to the period when the family gathered around the radio to listen as the world was being brought into their living rooms. It was a marvel in its time and thankfully many of those marvelous moments are preserved for other generations to enjoy. At CJNU we try to bring you the best of the best for your listening pleasure nightly on the Nostalgia station.

 

Sunday: Comedy Club

There’s nothing better than going to bed with a smile on your face. Get your week started off with a dose of humor from the likes of Jack Benny, Fibber McGee and Molly, The Life of Riley, Groucho Marx and many other mirth-makers from the golden age of radio comedy.
