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.
