CJRT-FM is a Canadian public radio station, which broadcasts at 91.1 on the FM dial in Toronto, Ontario.
CJRT promotes itself by the moniker Jazz FM.
The station transmits at a strength of 40 kilowatts; as its transmitter facilities are at the CN Tower, however, its effective radiated power is actually 100,000 watts.

 CJRT Orchestra
The orchestra, consisting of members of the TS and leading freelance players, has varied in size from 25 to 65.
In 1989 CJRT discontinued the orchestra's subscription series, limiting its performances to CJRT broadcasts.
Subscription concerts were taken over by the Toronto Philharmonic Orchestra, which in 1990 had essentially the same players as the CJRT orchestra and was conducted by Robinson, but which was overseen by a new board of directors.

The Silmarillion is simply CJRT's compilation and editing (ad in a few cases writing) of the same texts found in those volumes of HOME.
In the Silmarillion, CJRT used an earlier version of the death of Thingol and sacking of Doriath because his father hadn't yet gotten around to rewriting that part of the story.
CJRT came up with the cludgy ending that Thongol was killed in Menegroth, Melian left thus lifting the girdle and then the dwarf army invaded and attacked.

 Letters
CJRT is turning into a bland, boring, dull station, undistinguishable from the other stations only by its classical music (which can be heard on another station in town, so that'll probably get ditched too) and the boring way it approaches that livliest of all arts, jazz.
I think it's incredibly sad that CJRT is cutting its folk, world, and blues shows, as that was some of my favourite stuff on the station.
In large measure, CJRT ceased to be that kind of place a while ago but at least Saturday afternoons remained a kind of island of variety and integrity.

 Genesis of the Open Learning Institute of British Columbia
Several concerns were on his mind at that time: the very few degree programs offered at a distance; the complete lack of part-time degree programs with open registration; and the limited opportunities available for housebound women to pursue advanced educational goals.
The CJRT antenna at that time was located on the roof of a three-storey Ryerson building.
CJRT's general listening audience now consist of approximately 200,000 listeners; of these, 50,000 tune in weekly to Open College broadcasts.

 CJRT-FM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1996 CJRT-FM's government support (under Premier Mike Harris) ended, forcing the station to restructure to a self-sustaining public broadcaster.
Regulated by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), CJRT's license is categorized under "other special FM", a third sector of Canadian radio broadcasting that provides to Canadians a style of radio that is an alternative to that available from the CBC or private commercial stations.
The radio station has since had to support itself entirely by corporate and private donations and by limited commercial revenue.

The problem was that JRRT had not brought the history of the fall of Doriath into harmony with much of the rest of his tale.
My understanding of the role of CJRT was that he merely put together bits and pieces of an unpublished/unfinished Silm.
CJRT simply > connected the dots In most of the other chapters, the majority of the prose itself was written by JRRT, with only mild editing necessary to bring it together with the rest of the book.

 [mplpost] An alternative view of the CJRT situation
I wish us all well with CJRT, but I have my doubts that the folk community is large enough to make a real dent in the station--certainly not as large as the classical lobby in New York City (home of the below-mentioned Metropolitan Opera among others).

This may sound >like being in a folk ghetto, but if we are going to proudly proclaim that >folk is an essential minority taste, then we cannot expect to have much >choice about what part of the week it is broadcast on an (unfortunately) >money-driven station.
