Willie-O,

CJRT is indeed Ryerson.

It has been mentioned that we still have Rick's show, we also have the one that preceeds it, "Let The Good Times Roll" a very good blues show. I find that Saturday afternoons are a lot easier for me to find time to listen to the radio. I try to tune in to the Monday night CIUT programs as often as I can, but I'm usually busy those nights.

The folk show on CJRT used to run for three hours, was cut back to two, the Blues show is also two hours, so obviously they can play a lot more music than the one hour slots on CIUT. They also are (were) very active in promoting local shows and festivals. This will be a great loss if allowed to happen.
