Welcome to the original website for Royal City Rag.

Royal City Rag started in Guelph in August 2005 as a Tuesday morning mixed music and spoken word (politics and current affairs) show. After a brief stint in the Wednesday 6-7 p.m. slot we found our way to our current home on Saturday mornings from 8-10 a.m.

And now… we’ve split into two different radio shows!

The musical side of Royal City Rag is now known as Folk Roots Radio. We’re still on the air on Saturdays, from 8-10 a.m. on CFRU 93.3fm.

Folk Roots Radio
If folk, roots, country and blues are your thing you’ll find them all on Folk Roots Radio. Grab your favourite morning brew and settle down for two hours of music and more to start your Saturday! If you are a musician and you want to play live in the studio, get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.

To contact us:  jan@folkrootsradio.com.

Our current affairs and politics output is now part of Beyond the Ballot Box. Beyond the Ballot Box takes place on Thursdays from 5-7 p.m. on CFRU 93.3fm.

Beyond the Ballot Box
Beyond the Ballot Box is your home for politics and current affairs. You can find us on CFRU 93.3fm in Guelph every Thursday evening from 5-7 p.m. Join us for The Gang of Four roundtable as we humorously tackle the big political stories of the week. Stay with us for one on one interviews and our sister show Accessibility Matters or join us for The Guelph Hour, a roundtable discussion featuring a special guest, dedicated to the Royal City. Beyond the Ballot Box is produced by Jan Hall and hosted by Jan Hall with Oliver Rockside.

Politics and current affairs: jan@beyondtheballotbox.ca.

We’re keeping this website as a resource so feel free to visit and check out the archive.

We were at a secret location last week (April 1) for our Tall Tales Royal City Rag.

As part of the show we ran a competition asking listeners where we were. 

Believe it or not, most thought we were at Wal-Mart. One even sent me these pics which seem to confirm that!

The winner of the competition is Patti Rainbow who correctly confirmed that we were probably only pretending to be at Wal-Mart.

She is, of course, quite right… we were actually at Zehrs.

Patti wins a CD from both Sam and Brad, and a book from Sya. Congratulations!

Royal City Rag, Wednesdays, 6-7 p.m. on CFRU 93.3 fm. Guelph’s Campus and Community Radio Station. Listen live on CFRU 93.3fm, or, after the fact, via the website. If it happens in Guelph you’ll hear about it on Royal City Rag!
