Dorothy Dob­bie's Gar­den­ing show on CJNU

Manitoba Gardener Magazine - - LOCAL DIRT -

You may al­ready be aware of this, but if you are won­der­ing where your ra­dio gar­den­ing fix has gone, here’s the story.

After 15 years of bring­ing gar­den news and in­for­ma­tion to Man­i­to­bans on Sun­day morn­ings, CJOB wanted to move the Gar­dener show to the af­ter­noon. Host Dorothy Dob­bie thought that this time slot would in­ter­fere with her sum­mer gar­den­ing time and would also in­ter- fere with the busy sched­ules of her guests. It would also be un­pop­u­lar with busy gar­den­ers. So she picked up her mic and moved it to the Nos­tal­gia ra­dio sta­tion, CJNU 93.7 FM. While this lit­tle sta­tion doesn’t have the reach of CJOB. Gar­den junkies can still lis­ten to CJNU on MTS Chan­nel 725 or through their com­put­ers or mo­bile de­vices as well as on their FM ra­dios.

“I have been on the board of CJNU for a half dozen years,” says Dorothy, who is vice pres­i­dent of the sta­tion, “and I felt a bit con­flicted about broad­cast­ing on a com­peti­tor, so all is well that ends well. I also like the idea of sup­port­ing a lo­cal sta­tion.”

Tune in ev­ery Sun­day at 8:00 in the morn­ing for all the usual guests plus a lit­tle touch of mu­sic to keep your day sunny. Go to the web­site at
