Coming this Earth Day: The Wetland Project returns!

 

CJSR is proud to once again join stations across Canada and the world in broadcasting the 8th Annual Wetland Project Soundscape. Tune in all day long at 88.5FM or online at cjsr.streamon.fm for a 24-hour natural soundscape recording synced to our local time. 

Artists Brady Marks and Mark Timmings invite you to fill your home, work and leisure spaces with the sounds of birds, frogs, insects and airplanes! Immerse yourself in the vitality of the 24-hour circadian rhythm of the ṮEḴTEḴSEN marsh in unsurrendered W̱SÁNEĆ territory (Saturna Island, British Columbia). The broadcast engages its audience in real time and stimulates a powerful reengagement with the living environment. At a time when the world is in great turmoil, slow radio offers us a life-affirming space to reflect on a more lucid and caring future.

CJSR’s mission is to “enlighten and entertain our audience through high quality and diverse programming that constantly challenges the status quo.”

Our programming provides a voice for marginalized communities and perspectives from across Edmonton, a home for underground music, and a place to push boundaries in terrestrial radio.

Nothing on CJSR is like you’ll hear anywhere else: our programming runs the gamut from environmental news, to heavy metal, to underground electronica, to LGBTQ2S+ news, to organ music, to the latest from Eritrea. And everything else, too.

CJSR 88.5FM is located in amiskwaciy-wâskahikan, the city of Edmonton, which is on Treaty 6 territory as well as region 4 of the Métis nation of Alberta. In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge that the land on which we broadcast is a traditional meeting ground and home for many indigenous peoples, including Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Dene, Métis, and Nakota Sioux.
