Go for a Spin!

A living museum of broadcast archives from the region and around the world, as well as thousands of favourites from the late 1940's to the late 1970's: Big Band, Pop, Oldies, Crooners, Traditional Country, classic commercials and comedy, TV shows and movie clips. And all, at the touch of a button!

You're a Boomer. And you long for the way it used to be - when life was less complicated, and AM radio ruled. There was a time when local radio catered to Boomers. Now, not so much... But we do. Here, you will find all of your favourite songs, around the clock, online - on your computer, tablet, smart phone, digital radio and all manner of mobile devices. Plus classic commercials, TV shows, movies, flashbacks to history and rare broadcast archives from the Peterborough and Lindsay area...

We built ‘The Fantastic Kawartha Time Machine’ as an online alternative to traditional radio – and even branded over-the-air oldies stations can’t offer what we do: and that’s  a true potpourri of your favourite songs: from Buddy Holly to The Beatles, Patti Page, to Patsy Cline, Louis Prima to Louis Armstrong. Top 40 to Top of the Pops – even Big Band and Standards: Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Doris Day, Rosemary Clooney, and Patsy Cline.


That’s right, Patsy Cline. Who made the rule that oldies need be restricted to Pop?  Not us. That’s why we spin traditional country tracks you don’t hear on commercial country radio today.

Our commercials are classics from yesteryear. So too, is our comedy – Bob Newhart, Rodney Dangerfield, Jeff Foxworthy, Carol Burnett, Red Skelton, Steve Martin, and Allan Sherman, who was known for alot more than ‘Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah.’ We have the collection…


Nostalgia holds an important place in the lives of Boomers, and Boomer wannabes: our fondness for the good old days, when life was less complicated, and music had a beat you could tap your toe to. The melodies that lifted our spirits and served as the soundtrack to our lives.


Other oldies stations focus just on the music. But there’s more to nostalgia than that. That’s why we expand your experience with rare, regional broadcast archives from area radio stations 980 CHEX, 910 CKLY and 1420 CKPT – to reflect the patina of yesteryear. This is what truly sets us apart from the rest, augmented by the biggest news, sports and pop culture events from Ontario, Canada and the world…

On weekends, stellar programs from both local, and global hosts that promise to be entertaining, and informative.


Longing for yesteryear? The Fantastic Kawartha Time Machine brings it all back – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, in CD-quality stereo.

But most important, keep those nostalgic fires burning – back to the world we knew, when the world we knew was young and alot less complicated.


The Fantastic Kawartha Time Machine is your button for the way it used to be…


Enjoy. And never apologize for loving the Good Old Days!
