Blues, Rock n Roll, Gospel, Soul - Whatever Grabs Us

Though primarily a blues show Anything Goes all over the place-blues, rock n roll, gospel, soul..whatever grabs us.

To quote the great Chicago bluesman Willie Dixon,“The blues is the roots and the rest is the fruits”.

Having A Show

Howie attended the meeting at Manson’s Hall, when the possibility of starting a radio station on Cortes Island was first discussed. Six months after CKTZ was launched, he and Paul became DJs. Howie went on to become a board member for five years and is now the station manager.

However, he explains, “My prime interest in Cortes radio is [that] I really enjoy having a show.”
