Grow Your Business with JACK 96.9

JACK 96.9 is one of Calgary's most unique stations with lots of attitude! Hailing from the glory years of the early 2000s, JACK was a mould-breaker in mixing so many genres together. At the time of the genesis of iPods and MP3 players, people were starting to mix massive playlists of their own, and JACK capitalized on this trend by offering their own massive mix, and not taking any requests. "Playing what WE Want" became JACK's slogan, and they hilariously rejected requests on-air to let people know this isn't a democratic playlist. JACK's huge, curated playlist has some jukebox favorites with some twists and turns its listeners don't see coming. Advertise on JACK... a funny and quirky station that's bingable and keeps people on the dial.
