Community radio has a strong following among Canadian Francophones. New Brunswick station CJSE is especially successful. Cabbie Jean-Marc Dugas enjoys listening to the station while he drives around Moncton.
Norm says he started listening to the station 16 years ago, when it first began. He has a visual impairment that only allows him to discern between light and shadow. He calls one of the disc jockeys who is his cousin.
Popular programs include “Let’s Talk,” “Talk a Lot,” and “The Little Cowboy.” MP Dominic LeBlanc tries to avoid “Let’s Talk.” Shirley Gaudet calls the station and wins an album. Hear a portion of the "Homeward Bound Show."
Popular Acadian performers include Cayouche, Hert Leblanc, and Daniel Léger. Dugas picks up Leblanc, who recalls singing in English. Gaudet reflects on country music and calls CJSE to request a song.
