About Us

Cottage Radio is a music program featuring songs that span the last six decades. Cottage Radio offers an eclectic mix of music and entertainment, including shows dedicated to the 60’s graffiti oldies, 70’s classic rock anthems, 80’s icon soundtracks of John Hughes, 90’s alternative grunge and today’s new music. Cottage Radio is a creative blend of your all-time favourite music hits mixed with the tranquil and relaxing sounds of nature and summertime. From the docks of the northern Muskoka lakes to the southern shores of the great lakes, Cottage Radio is an innovative and refreshing alternative to traditional radio. We hope you enjoy!
