    Everything other than country

    by jojocan Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Grande Prairie has two radio stations, one country, one everything but country.

    97.7 SunFM is everything but country, except the backstreet boys, which they just won't play.

    They have contests, request hours (during lunch time), all sorts of fun things. My favorite time to listen to this radio station is first thing in the morning, because they are funny, and then at lunch, because you get a good mixture of music.

    Everything Country

    Grande Prairie has two radio stations, one country, one everything but country.

    93.1FM Big Country is everything country. They have lots of contests, and several request hours, including lunch time and then 9:00pm to 11:00pm.

    My favorite time to listen to this station is at 5:10pm because they play a program called: "The rest of the story" and it gives all sorts of stories about people that you would never know about otherwise. Like one was all about how Teddy Roosevelt was a famous author while president, which I never knew. Pretty cool hey?!

    The Grande Prairie College, apart from being the post secondary school in town, is renowned for its architecture. It has no square corners, inside or out! Its crazy to walk inside, down long hallways you feel disorientated almost curving around. I remember in grade 6 opening my social textbook, written in the states, and seeing a picture of the college in it!

    The college also has a walk-in clinic in it, if you have an emergency, and a theatre, if you want to catch a play.

    "The landmark Grande Prairie Regional College building was designed in 1969 by renowned architect Douglas Cardinal, and is recognized worldwide as both a work of art and an architectural marvel. It was built in the early 1970s. A complementary expansion, which effectively doubled the original building, was designed by local architects Field, Field and Field, and completed in 1991." - taken from the college website
