CBC Radio Two - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

CBC Radio Two - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "CBC Radio Two is an FM radio network in Canada, operated by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Its programming focus is on arts and culture, primarily consisting of programs devoted to opera, classical music and jazz, although some programming devoted to Canadian pop and indie rock music also airs.

The CBC's FM network was launched in 1946, but was strictly a simulcast of the AM radio network until 1960. In that year, distinct programming on the FM network was launched for the first time. This was briefly discontinued in 1962, but resumed again in 1964.

In 1975, the FM network was rebranded CBC Stereo, to distinguish it from the AM network, known as CBC Radio. However, in the 1990s many of the old AM stations moved to FM as well, so in 1997 the CBC rebranded the networks as the current CBC Radio One and CBC Radio Two.

Radio Two is not as widely available across Canada as Radio One. While Radio One is available in most communities across Canada regardless of size, Radio Two for the most part is available only in larger cities. Radio Two also has a more consistent national schedule than Radio One, with only one and a half hours each week devoted to distinct regional programming. Regional programming primarily consists of a weekly arts magazine which airs on Sunday afternoons at noon, and a daily calendar of local arts"
