The radio station CJNU, Nostalgia Unlimited, is moving to a new spot on the dial and a stronger signal for its easy-listening programming.
The station moves to 93.7 FM from 107.9 FM on Sunday, when it officially starts up a new 500-watt transmitter atop the 55 Nassau building in Osborne Village.
The station will also continue to promote many non-profit organizations through its sponsorship program. The Winnipeg Foundation is one of its community partners, but the station has also hosted live broadcasts from the venues such as the Stroke Recovery Association and Variety, the Children’s Charity.
The new frequency has been undergoing tests, and should provide a greatly improved signal compared to the old spot on the dial, the station said in a release.
The change also signals a move to a fully licensed radio station, a goal that began in 2006. Behind the initiative is the Nostalgia Broadcasting Cooperative, which -- under the terms of its old licence from Industry Canada -- had to be off the air more than once a month.
CJNU plays "easy listening nostalgia music" from the past 70 years.
