Dylan & Jason in The Morning Zone
Weekdays 6:00–10:00 am
What would happen if you put a genius and a comedian in the same room for 4 hours everyday? We have no idea, but Dylan & Jason get to the bottom of life’s tough questions; like how often to wash your jeans and if it’s OK to eat hard boiled eggs in front of other people. Despite how it may sound, Dylan & Jason actually do like each other. Kinda like a couple where one person married up – they’re locked in a constant battle to prove it wasn’t them.
8:15 am Dylan vs. the World. Where you can challenge Dylan to a game of Wit & Knowledge, with your host Jason Lamb!
Weekdays 10:00 am–2:00 pm & Tea Time at 3:00 pm
Jon Williams comes from the land of Harry Potter and accents which make anyone sound real smart. Tune in to learn something completely random or hear Jon regale you with a cheeky rap (as long as Bossman isn’t around). Jon is a passionate supporter of music and you can always count on him to have the most up-to-the-minute information about your favourite Zone artists.
Pol Plastino & Jenny West in The Afternoon Zone
Weekdays 2:00–6:00 pm & The Knowledge Bomb at noon
How do you accurately describe a guy with a flaming pie tattoo? Pol describes himself as a combination between Han Solo, “Handsome” Dan from Wayne’s World 2, and Hedonismbot from Futurama. We kinda think of Pol like a Chicago-style pizza; covered in cheese, stuffed with awesomeness, and deeper than you think. He’s totally a guy you could pal around with, but make sure you never leave your phone lying around unlocked and unattended or Pol will update your status to some profound thought followed by #PoopPoopPoopBanana.
You never know what Jenny has up her sleeve, *KABLAMO* What was that? Too late, you missed it. Jenny proves to us that “the West is the Best” as she regales us with tales of life, magic tricks, and awkward stories all while somehow keeping Pol in line.
3:15ish Catch The Knowledge Bomb at noon, then Pol & Jenny will quiz you on your attention-paying skills with The Knowledge Bomb Fallout at 3:15 to win fabulous prizes!
4:50 Shoutouts! Text your shoutout to Pol & Jenny at 250.475.0913 and they’ll read it out on air!!
B-B-B-BONUS! Get the PJ Party Podcast with Pol & Jenny wherever you get your podcasts! A great way to catch up on the week that was in the Afternoon Zone or just take the hi-jinks with you!
Jade Nixon – Evenings & Weekends
Wed–Fri 6:00 pm–midnight, Sat (4:00–10:00 pm), and Sun (3:00–9:00pm)
Jade enjoys the finer things in life: bicycles, animals, ska music, and playing Animal Crossing. She wandered into the Zone to host a “My Turn” in 2010, and we liked her so much . . . we kept her!
Kirsten James – Weekends
Sat (10:00 am–4pm) and Sun (9:00 am–3:00 pm)
Kirsten’s hat closet is overflowing. There’s a graphic design hat, a video hat, a photography, teaching, and social media hat, and— look! There’s a big ol’ radio hat!
Aside from her invaluable help in the geek department with Bud, Kirsten wakes you up on the weekends with her love of music, Star Wars, and anything gold and shiny.
Quintin Moriarity – Evenings & Zone Ranger
Monday–Wednesday (6:00 pm–midnight)
Quintin is the
literal figurative baby of the radio station. But despite being the youngest Zoner, his experience behind the scenes as The Zone Ranger, play-by-playing for hockey games, and running the controls for years before we unveiled his just-past-puberty voice, means that Q is a voice you can trust.
He might still talk about farts and stuff on occasion but, for the most part, trust.
Marlon Martens – Voice of the Victoria Royals
Tune in to The Zone 20 minutes before each puck drop to hear the pre-game show with, Marlon Martens and special guests! Then, hard-hitting live play-by-play action and behind the scenes access to your Victoria Royals with interviews with players, coaches, and fans during the intermission- We are Royal Blue.
Capistrano Boitano – Music Director
Live Mixtape Weekdays at 5pm
Our music director is also the Zone’s resident DJ; as in actual DJ with records, needles, and mixing and stuff! Listen as he kicks off your commute home right with the 5 O’Clock Mixtape, a mashup of some of the hottest modern rock songs with some classics, and some surprises.
Allie Bowman – Promotion Director
Ever win anything from The Zone? You probably have Allie to thank for that! She’s the brains, heart, and good looks behind our promotion department. When she’s not showering Zoners with gifts and prizes, she becomes the powerhouse front-woman of Stinging Belle (with Jon on drums!). Brains, looks, and talent?!! I guess what we’re saying is that Allie rocks (and no we’re not just sayin’ that to get tickets to that thing).
webmeister Bud – Resident Geek
Some say that when he sleeps, his snores sound like a dial-up modem. Some say the only way to defeat him is ↑, ↑, ↓, ↓, ←, →, ←, →, B, A, Start. All we know is he’s called webmeister Bud! You’ve probably seen him out capturing photos, playing with drones, or compulsively cleaning stray hairs of others’ shirts. What keeps him going faster than a 56/kbps modem in 1999? Sugar. It’s sugar.
Bossman Johnny – Program Director
The man, the myth, the bossman. Listen for Bossman Johnny casually walking into Zone control unannounced to ‘check up’ and make sure the DJs aren’t getting into too much trouble. If you want to get on his good side, ask about the Denver Broncos. If you want to hear him talk for hours on end – ask about “vocal dynamics.” He also sings a mean version of our national anthem.
