A huge thanks to all who supported our application for The Lake and especially to those who appeared with us at The CRTC hearings which ended last week. Alexander Zonjic, Greg Kavanagh, Rob Tardik, Karen Cummings and Michael Williams gave fantastic support, as part of our panel. Thanks also to the Wave fans who came to listen and cheerlead! Not to mention all those who wrote such heartfelt letters earlier. A great effort from all! We felt we presented a very strong case in support of our radio format being given a home on 88.1FM. Decision will not be published til sometime in the fall likely. We'll keep you posted on any new developments. Stay in touch.

The full hearing process is underway and continues until May 18th. Durham Radio's "New Easy Listening" presentation to the CRTC will take place tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday, May 8th) at the Allstream Centre (CNE Grounds). The hearing is open to the public so anyone is welcome to attend as part of the audience/cheerleading brigade!

If you cannot make it in person to the hearing but are interested in listening, the hearing process will be streamed online from the CRTC website.

I was just reading your record reviews - Daryl Hall, Jessy J, etc. and found something missing! Might I suggest a link at the end of each review to the corresponding page at or iTunes? ...unless there's a problem, since neither are an advertiser or supporter of the station in any way. I just thought it would be a nice, courteous thing to do - read the review, interested in purchasing, see convenient link without searching.

Just a thought, guys!

Thanks......and fingers are crossed for the FM application! :-)

Reply to Sonya,
April 2nd was the deadline for intervention letters, the CRTC hearings will be in early May and because there are around 20 Applicants, the hearings are expected to last a full 2 weeks.

Like you say we've all got everything crossed.

So the suspense is killing us - any news from yesterday - April 2nd or was that just the deadline for submissions?
We have EVERYTHING crossed for you and hope to hear you on our car radios soon!!!

Doug and I on the golf course in Fla today listening to the WAVE on a friend's ipod. How neat to have the Wave provide a cool soundtrack to the game!

Just submitted my letter of support to the CRTC.. Good Luck on the application and hope to catch the new Smooth Jazz on my radio AGAIN!

Count me in as well for someone who forwarded a letter of support for the application. I must admit though, the list and number of applicants for the frequency is even more daunting than I could have imagined so it will be an uphill battle to achieve success. However, given that many of the other applicants are just repeats of similar programming that is already on the air, done right and assuming people on the CRTC panel are REALLY interested in originality and support for Canadian talent that blows all the others away, The Wave's successor on 88.1 is the ONLY real choice.

I just sent my letter in support. I still terribly miss Smooth Jazz and hope you guys are back on the air. I was excited to hear the news that there was still a chance to get the Wave back.

To anyone who hasn't done so yet, please go to the CRTC application and make out an intervention letter for submittal so we can get a smooth jazz radio station back (88.1 FM) for the GTA and Golden Horseshoe area. I miss Wave.FM and can't wait for 88.1.

Heading to Peter's Place in Gravenhurst tomorrow for a night with Lee Ritenour! Would be so much fun to have some of you join Doug and me to celebrate my birthday with the fantastic Mr. Ritenour up close!! We're staying at the Marriott on the Wharf to make a mini holiday out of our trip.
