Mixtapes

Jonesy’s passion for mixtapes harkens back to the cassette era. She loved compiling collections for friends, or having them introduce her to a new artist. Jonesy never dreamed of playing mixtapes over the radio until coming to Cortes Island.

Prior to 2003, Jonesy had been a middle school teacher in Winnipeg. Her partner, Monica, initiated the move after attending a course at Hollyhock. She knew this was something Jonesy must do and, without asking, signed her up for the Spring Term. Jonesy describes her first experience of Cortes as just like “coming home.” She and Monica quit their jobs and sold their house in Winnipeg.

Monica told Jonesy, “This is something you should get involved with.” This idea did not come to fruition until after Jonesy became a teacher at Cortes Island Elementary. Around 2008, she and a couple of friends took turns...

End of the Road Show

Hello listeners, my is Gregg aka Hiway Hippy. I came to Cortes Radio with my End of the Road Show the first week of June 2018. Funny thing is the station was the first building I entered upon my arrival to the island back in May. Drawn in by the hometown ambiance and the endless volumes of music I was instantly caught hook, line and sinker.   I didn’t know exactly how I would find a space to fill but I knew in my heart that I could add my own twist into ‘Puttin the Freak into Frequency’. Fortunately I was able to meet Howie while moving a local fellow and we set the wheels in motion for a chance at becoming a D.J. 3 day’s later we had an impromptu training session and as they say, the rest is history and I’ve been spinning the tunes Friday afternoons starting at 3pm through till 7pm.

Eclectic Selection

Eclectic Selection

The Eclectic Collection reflects my love of music, in itís many forms. The rock and roll and blues and folk songs of my youth, jazz, classical and Celtic of later years, all make an appearance during the show. Not the top 40 hits, unless there is no option, but the live versions, the covers by other artists, the hidden gems deep in the albums that never got airplay Cover of Duke Jenkins’ Aristocrats “Baby I’m Sick Of You,” lead song for Jan 2, 2020 June 19, 2021 June 12, 2021 June 5, 2021 May 29, 2021 May 22, 2021 May 15th May 8, 2021 May 1, 2021 April 24, 2021 April 17, 2021 April 10, 2021 April 3, 2021 March 27, 2021 March 20, 2021 March 13, 2021 March 6, 2021 Feb 27, 2021 Feb 20, 2021 Feb 13, 2021 Feb 6, 2021 Jan 30, 2021 Jan 22, 2021 Jan 16, 2021 Jan 9, 2021 Jan 2, 2021 Dec 26, 2020 Dec 19, 2020 Dec 12, 2020 Dec 5, 2020 Nov 28, 2020 Nov 7, 2020 Oct 31, 2020 Oct 24, 2020 Oct 17, 2020 October 10, 2020 October 3, 2020 September 26, 2020 September 19, 2020 September 12. 2020 September 4, 2020 August 29, 2020 August 15, 2020 Saturday, August 1, 2020 Saturday July 25, 2020 Saturday, July 18, 2020 Saturday, July 11, 2020 Saturday, July 4, 2020 Saturday, June 27, 2020 Saturday, June 20, 2020 Saturday, June 13, 3030 Saturday, June 6, 2020 Saturday , May 30, 2020 Saturday, May 23, 2020 Saturday, May 16, 2020 Saturday May 9, 2020 Saturday May 2, 2020 Saturday, April 25,...
