FAQ

-What is Time Capsule Audio Network?
 
 It's a internet audio based "radio" station obviously, but TCAN is a weekly snapshot of the 20th century, literally a "time capsule" of the entire 20th century in 7 days. We start on Monday with the first 39 years of the century, then progress through each decade for the remaining 6 days, then we continue all over again in a continuous cycle. From Edison's Records to The Backstreet Boys, we truly cover 100 years in a week.    
 
-What music do you play?
 
Realistically, we can't cover every genre that the 20th century has produced, but we can certainly give it our best shot. We focus mainly on the popular music of each decade, but we realize that it's not completely about playing the hits. We try to mix in hits and non hits in the pop genre, with country also included. This recurs in each hour of each day so you come up with a interesting mix of pop and country which can display the unique diversity of each decade. Transitions take place at Midnight eastern time daily with a montage covering significant events of the 20th century and into the next featured day.  We are continually adding music to the "universe" of TCAN, and we hope you enjoy our highly unique take on the most recorded and preserved 100 years yet in modern times.
 
-Do You Take Requests?
 
Yes and no. As the station is largely automated, it's difficult to actually play requests, we hope to add some live times with people playing tunes, at some point, but not currently. If there a song that you're curious to get the title for, please make a note of when it's played day and time (Eastern Time) and email us to find out. We'll get back as quickly as you can...
 
-Where are You?
 
 On the planet? the studios are located and stream are originating in Canada. If you might hear something you might not recognize, it just might be canadian artists in the 60, 70's 80's and 90's days.
 
Canadian music isn't all about Rush, Anne Murray, Celine Dion and Alanis Morrisette. That's only part of it.    
 
-Do You Have Special Programming?
 
Yes. Weekly shows also make up the schedule, and are listed as features on our schedule page. Specials will occasionally pop up based on availability. Watch the page for more details on a regular basis.
