The store is closed.

Monarch’s convenience is closed for business. This website will remain as an archive of the project and maybe someday the store will re-open. In the meantime, enjoy the episodes and materials presented here.

If you’re interested in radio drama or volunteering at CKUW 95.9 FM in Winnipeg, please get in touch with us. You can phone 204-786-9782, visit ckuw.ca or send email to ac.gepinniwunull@wukc

We’re extremely proud of all the participants in this radio drama project and we hope that someday we can have more serial radio drama on-air at CKUW.

Thanks for the memories!!

Oh the Delay’s

Well with the end of the school year and winter we find ourselves a little bit behind in posting news and the new episodes.

If you’ve been tuning in you may have wondered what last week was all about.  Let’s call it a little glimpse into the making of At The Monarch’s Convenience, a sort of behind the scenes episode.

This week we are airing episode 39, this is our penultimate episode.  That’s right, next week will be the end of At the Monarch’s Convenience.

We have been broadcasting for a full year now and in that year we have managed to write, produce and air 40 half hour episodes.  Quite an accomplishment for a mostly volunteer effort and one that we are all very proud of.

We hope that you have enjoyed the show as much as we have and will tune in next week and listen to our good-bye.
