Plain A.I.R  (March 2016): Royal Red Radio with Royal Red Brigade

The March edition of Plain A.I.R. will be Royal Red Radio, hosted by local punk rock band Royal Red Brigade. Their program will focus on Canadian punk, rock, hardcore and/or independent musicians that have been valuable in some way to members of the longstanding Regina band Royal Red Brigade. Each week’s show will be lead-hosted by one of the members of RRB, and will focus on bands and artists that have inspired them each as working musicians in the Canadian underground.

Plain A.I.R is an artists-in-residence radio program, a live radio “space”, which encourages creative expression and experimentation. Each month Plain A.I.R  features a new local artist, DJ, musician, band or community member as a guest host who programs a month’s worth of live, weekly radio shows. The program airs Saturday afternoons from 2-4pm on 91.3FM in Regina, on-line at cjtr.ca, via our free mobile app and on channels 700 on Access and 806 on Sasktel.
