RADIO CLASSICS on CJNU
Your hosts PETER NADOLNY and JIM PAPPAS
Venture back with us as we 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.
