Although we've been on the air for 40 years, Co-op Radio doesn't live in the past. The station renews itself constantly, as new volunteers arrive with ideas for new programs.
In fact, we’ve got some programs you may not yet have heard about as Co-op Radio continues to cover subjects, and provide programming for audiences not usually served by mainstream radio.
Death Matters Live (Wednesdays, 12 – 1 p.m.) -- this is a program about death, dying and loss, and how to survive it. The hosts (celebrants, grief counselors, etc.) come from a variety of experiences with death and dying -- except, of course, the Supreme Experience. But what you learn on this show might better help you to survive the death of a loved one, or face your own death with serenity.
Hey Weirdo (Fridays, 9:30 – 10:30 p.m.) -- a program for all "weirdos," with a taste for weird music. Alana Higgins tells you where to find it, and stresses that it's O.K. to be weird.
Canviet Radio (Sundays, 7 - 8:30 a.m.) -- a Vietnamese program meant to provide a new source of information and entertainment to the Vietnamese communities in B. C., Canada, and around the world. CanVietRadio, một chương trình phát thanh Việt Ngữ, vinh hạnh được trở thành một phần củaĐài Phát Thanh danh tiếng và vững vàng Vancouver Co-op Radio, để cung cấp mộtnguồn thông tin và giải trí mới mẻ cho cộng đồng người Việt ở B.C.,Canada, và khắp nơi trên thế giới.
My Musical Life (Thursdays, 2:30 - 4:00 p.m.) -- How did Co-op Radio's music programmers and listeners first get turned on to the types of music they love? What other kinds of music do they listen to? How have their lives been shaped by this music, and how have their music choices been shaped by their lives? If you've ever been curious, check out the many and varied types of music you will hear each week as a different programmer or Co-op Radio listener talks of the music in their life. Listen for the three poster-folks you will see soon on the Co-op Radio transit shelter ads when they are My Musical Life guests near the end of the upcoming Member Drive.
Aram-E Jan (first and third Thursday of each month at 9 - 10 a.m.) -- a program about Persian poetry and music to inspire meditation. Dr. Mehdi Meshgini of Vancouver's Columbia College will recite poetry, and local Iranian musicians will play their music.
Re:composition (Thursdays, 10 a.m.) -- a program of new music by local musicians. What does that term “new music” mean? That’s exactly what the show will present through interviews with local composer and performers. New compositions will be a prominent feature of Re:composition. If only one of these new shows piques your interest, please listen in at 100.5 FM or online, and consider supporting Co-op Radio during our Fall Member Drive October 23 to November 6, 2015.
