I heard the station on my way home on the inaugural night, from 
approx. 11:30 PM to 12:15 AM.  What I heard was completely automated, 
no live announcers at all, no weather or news, and only one 
commercial.  The selection of music and the jingles were both very 
reminiscent  of the old WNEW (AM).

What surprised me was the apparent lack of Canadian content.  During 
the whole time I only heard one song I could identify as Canadian, it 
was Holly Cole's unique version (with her trio) of "I can see clearly 
now".  I wonder if they are making their Canadian content requirement 
during the other parts of the day, they certainly are not at night.
