Moose, eh?/ My World


Radio for Ontario's "Cottage Country"

Haliburton 93.5 is one of thirteen  Ontario English-language radio stations branded with the name Moose FM. Generally, these local stations play "adult contemporary music."  Hmmmm. I'm not sure what that means and  I cannot  get any of the thirteen stations on my home radio to check them out. I live just a tad too far south.

I took the photo because I like the name Moose FM. It seems soooo appropriate for local stations in northern and north-central Ontario.

Note: to answer Kathy's question below: Yes, Canadian stations have call letters that begin with C. Moose FM in Halliburton is CZFN 93.5.



Visit My World Tuesday  HERE to see tons of photos from around the world.

Cool!

Adult contemporary music? Maybe it's a new genre that's coming on the scene! Do Canadian radio stations have call letters? I don't think I've ever seen a sign or an ad for a radio station in the US that didn't show call letters. "Moose" is definitely more interesting than KQUT!

A most misunderstood animal.

Cool moose.
We have 'the WOLF' out here 107.1 or something like that. MB

Funny! We have Jack FM here. But I think it's "classic" rock. I usually only listen to the NPR station anyway. I can't stand hearing the same songs all the time.

embrace your internal moose - idk why i said that, but that's pretty neat nickname for a radio station.

have a great week.

I guess you have a lot of mooses up in them thar parts! The term, "Adult Contemporary" was devised by a schizophrenic still bombed from the 1960s. He also thought "moose" was the plural of "mice."

Jacob said...

Re your question about Ocala's streets: Well, not every street is given a horse-related name. Some streets are named for local horses asses! ;-)

we have a lot of moose in Sweden. Kind of funny to give a radio station that name.

So very small town charming. I can't wait to find little places like this on our summer road trip.

Moose must be an excellent broadcaster! Great one for a name! Has he a lovely voice?

EG: I said to myself "How lucky to see a moose". You really fooled me with this one my friend.

Janie said...

I like the name, too, and the moose logo on the building. Never heard of adult contemporary music...

Carver said...

I like the name Moose FM and if I had to guess without knowing where there was a Moose station, I'd guess in Canada. Cheers, Carver

Ebie said...

I love the name, very unique. Sorry, I just can't help but read the comments since you posted the note, just out of curiosity. What a great laugh and good comments. That's one perk of blogging, great sense of humor....LOL

Love your comment on my post too.

Rose said...

Wouldn't it be fun to say, Oh, I am just listening to the Moose?

Carolyn Ford said...

Oh well, I guess we aren't supposed to understand everything about the world around us! I really like the perspective and composition of this photo, though. Enjoy the music!

Luna Miranda said...

i imagine my favorite DJ, Howlin' Dave, saying the station ID.
