As I was browsing my list, I realized I did not have any stations representing Saskatchewan. Upon a good listen, I have found two I knew about previously but that have improved to the point that they are now worthy of inclusion. Both are in the wonderful but still snicker-worthy market of Regina (yep, it’s pronounced with a long i).
Despite being part of a big ownership group, I am quite impressed by the mix of music including a lot of Canadian artists that never received much attention in the United States. Yes, there are some real cheesy tracks they play now and again but, from what I have heard so far, those can be tolerated as what comes up next usually makes up for it.
Overall regarding the Radio page…as I have been listening to many of those stations more frequently now that KoHoSo Radio 66 is on indefinite hiatus, there might be some deletions coming. In light of what I said above about CJTR not having a lot of non-music programming, I am starting to get tired of certain outlets that seem to be expanding theirs. As what I want out of this list is for people to be almost 100% assured of hearing music when they try one of the stations I recommend, there is likely a purge coming in the various "variety" categories.
Another station on which I am keeping a close eye is one of the two I recommended the last time I added stations to my list. Sadly, CKKQ in Victoria, British Columbia recently changed from its excellent mix of "classic rock" to more of what I would call an "active rock" format although they seem to call it "mainstream rock" (whatever the fuck that is supposed to mean). While "The Q" surprisingly retained its absolutely top-notch on-air staff, the music mix as I’ve heard it so far is uninspiring. I’m still trying to give this one a chance but don’t be surprised in the future when going through my archive to see strikeout type on half of that original post in addition to that station being removed.
