      LITE sounds like so many other radio stations. JEWEL's format was UNIQUE and played music we don't hear anywhere else. Such a disappointment. You lost a long-time loyal listener (along with several friends and family members as well).
    • Michel Ellis
      When the radio was called Jewel, it was better than today's Light. ..they play the same songs at least several times a day... even though i love all the hosts..Roger Ashby`s oldies was the best! I'm sad.

      I'm from Toronto, and I love listening to Jewel 88.5. Perfect mix for home, and work, it would be nice if Jewel would play more of 70's tunes.

      So disappointed in your station this year. I so look forward to listening to your amazing Christmas music which even included non secular music but this year only sporadic Christmas music and almost all secular. I understand yo7 have to be “politically correct” but VERY disappointing.

      Where is Roger Ashby? It's 4:23pm on Saturday, October 16, 2021 and Roger is NOT on your station. Saturdays from 4 to 7pm and Sundays from 9am to 12 noon are his broadcast times and days. So, where is he. Please put him back on. He is the only reason why I listen to Jewel 88.5 (or now Lite 88.5 for some stupid reason).
