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.


JACK BENNY ..  was on the air for 24 years and his comedy set a high water mark and was  imitated later by Jerry Seinfeld on TV.

The marvelous Jack Benny with his whole cast of characters explore his  life and times while living to age 39 , trying to pinch every penny and  fiddling with a violin that will not cooperate.
