A media partnership between

93.7, “the little station that could”, and I might add, did. This seems like a very natural alli-


ance when I think back – after all, it was Garry Robertson who initiated the organization of CJNU 93.7 many years ago and Garry used to work with us at Pegasus. In fact, if it weren’t for Garry, we probably wouldn’t have started Life- styles 55 at all! At the time, Garry was on the board of the Manitoba Society for Seniors (now defunct), and it was he who introduced us – they needed a publisher and we were willing to help out.

Since that time, we have broadened

the scope of our paper, which is now independent, and we have built a mar- velous readership of people from our generation. Now I am on the board of CJNU, so what could be more fitting than that we join in an alliance of sup- porting each other? Each month, we will devote one or

two pages to CJNU 93.7 just as we have done for so many years for our friends at Creative Retirement (and we will be helping them once again in publishing their tri-annual program, starting with their very next issue!). As for CJNU 97.3, we plan to keep

you up to date on what’s coming up on the station, bring you stories about the people whose voices you love to hear and behind the scenes bits and pieces about the artists we feature on the radio – and just have a good time celebrating the music of our times. If you have thoughts or ideas about

artists or others you’d like to see fea- tured here, write us: regular mail at 3081 Ness, Winnipeg R2Y 2G3. Call us at 204-940-2700 or email us at dor- We would love to hear from you.

e are very thrilled to an- nounce a media partnership with Nostalgia Radio, CJNU

The “Little Station that Could” has become the “Little Station that CAN and DOES”, thanks to generous support and acceptance from our Community

soon be starting its 10th year on the air. The story began in the fall of 2006, thanks to the vision of the late Garry Robertson and other veteran broad- casters and lovers of radio. CJNU quickly became known as “Winnipeg's Home of Nostalgia Radio” and the “little station that could”. The station, which has been fully licensed by the CRTC since 2013, has continued to grow and evolve based on a strong, clear vision.


Listener-Supported – Volunteer Powered – Community Focussed When the CRTC awarded the li-

cense two years ago, it was for “a com- munity station that would target the generally underserved senior citizen community”. CJNU boosted its pow- er at the same time and moved to its current position on the dial. It is a first for Winnipeg, a community radio sta- tion operated mostly by volunteers on behalf of more than 1,200 subscribing members. The partnership that

CJNU enjoys with The Winnipeg Foundation has been an important driver of meaningful change and growth. In November of 2014, the station moved to its new home studio and office in the Richardson Building, at the historic intersection of Portage and Main. Rick Frost, CEO of The Win- nipeg Foundation, states, “We are so pleased with the evolution of our part- nership and how together we can fur- ther enhance and support Winnipeg’s charitable sector. CJNU gives us many opportunities to share with listeners, the impact that our donors are having in the community.” The partnership has also been very

special to me, personally, with their sponsorship of CJNU's daily newscast that I put together, also on behalf of Community News Common. Later this year, CJNU will be expanding regular news coverage with the ad- dition of an afternoon update. Other

spoken word programming such as the Sunday morning show RiverCity 360, which is created by the citizen journalists at Community News Com- mons, and Garry Moir’s History Vault vignettes are also examples of content that is relevant to our audience and the community.

Music and the Message Matter! With the most ex-

Roger Currie Currie's Corner

tensive radio music library in Winnipeg, CJNU plays an eclec- tic mix of easy listen- ing favourites. It in- cludes timeless classics from artists like Frank Sinatra, Tony Ben- nett, Sarah Vaughan,

Rosemary Clooney, Bing Crosby, and Ella Fitzgerald, performing the Great American Songbook. It's a sound like no other in Winnipeg. While the focus has been on the “Boomer” generation, CJNU's listen- ing audience is expanding, and getting a little younger, thanks a growing in- terest in music that truly stands the test of time. CJNU president Tom Dercola says, “We are very intergenerational in our approach to the music, our on-air and studio volunteers, and our sup- porters. That provides us with a truly special brand identity.” From day one, CJNU has been committed to showcasing Winnipeg's vibrant non-profit sector. We broad- cast “live” from a different host spon-
