The change in the season often brings changes in CFCR's programming, and this spring is no different. We are bidding a fond farewell to a couple shows, but we're really excited to present some new programs to the lineup.

First, on Thursday nights, perennial favourite host Dana Durell recently hung up his oversized hosting pajamas and pulled the plug on When Insects Rule the World. In its spot, host of Strings of Nashville Kaley Evans has teamed up with new host Matt Yablonski to create Way Out West, now filling the Thursday 9-10pm slot. Way Out West features a mixture of garage rock, loner folk, power pop and out-there twang. In the 10-11pm spot left vacant by Strings of Nashville is another new program, The Pop Rocket, hosted by Janice Weber. The Pop Rocket features lots of shoegaze, jangle pop and other guitar-y wonders.

Sunday nights have seen a recent shuffle as well, sparked by the announcement that Play host Aaron Phoenix would no longer be continuing his program of classic radio dramas. Sunday night indie rock-a-thon Thrice Removed will move to the 8:30-9:30pm time slot starting May 6th, and new program The Rat Stevens Radio Show will take over at 11pm until 1am. New CFCR host Rat Stevens will bring you two hours of old-school punk and new wave, as well as lots of rock from the 60s on. There will be themes, dreams and vinyl-soaked schemes, so don't miss it.
