Wait until you check out The Conspiracy Show on that station, Sunday nights, 11:00PM - 1:00AM. Before that is 4 hrs of Big Band tunage. Too bad that station is not AM stereo,   https://conspiracyshow.strangeplanet.ca/      and      http://www.zoomerradio.ca/ 
I can't decide upon what's worst, young and stupid, or old and chemically dumbed down.

Yes and its a shame they are not playing ANALOGUE MATERIAL during the big band show! (Then anyone local would hear those as they were recorded and the BEST they could)

Big Band Sunday Night & The Conspiracy Show are two fantastically great shows.  Luckily CFZM is a regular (dare I say local?) after sunset here most nights.

Would be nice if they were AM Stereo. CFZM on C-QUAM would be a dream come true.

This one has a better signal in here daytime vs at night.
Only about 250mi east of me with a mostly over water path
whereas at night skywave becomes a factor.

0400 UT  11 Nov      Conspiracy Show .  .Tonight's first half featured " reversals" - where they take audio clips of politicians or others and run them backwards . Some of the clips were from the " Canadian groping scandal " and when reversed , new and different words - supposedly what they really meant.

Strong local like reception on the Panasonic Rf 951
