After getting married yesterday evening, my wife Debbie and I drove to Niagara Falls for a short honeymoon.  The Falls (and Debbie) were beautiful as always and it was fun hitting the casino and getting soaked on the Maid of the Mist. 
As we drove into western New York, I started scanning the radio dial and it stopped at 91.7 FM which was playing "Tom Sawyer" by Rush.  I thought it was odd that a station on that frequency was playing this before I remembered that Canada doesn't have to follow any 88.1 to 91.7 FM non-commercial band rules.

The station was CIXL "91.7 Giant FM," a Classic Rock station licensed to Welland, Ontario.  It became my station of choice for our time in Niagara Falls and I especially liked hearing Canadian acts like Trooper, Colin James, Toronto, Streetheart and Bruce Cockburn which are unknown where I live.
