In 1976, the 19th Century Victorian home at 127 York Street was transformed into a very well-known gourmet restaurant, “Le Jardin”. The five star restaurant in the heart of the Byward Market that catered to former Prime Ministers and various Heads of State became the home of 98.5 The Jewel in March 2006. In June of 2005, the CRTC approved the application by the Evanov Radio Group to operate an Adult Standards/Easy Listening FM Radio Station in The Nation’s Capital. The Jewel offers listeners throughout the Ottawa/Gatineau region a carefully crafted blend of today’s new easy listening sound – the greatest music ever recorded from yesterday’s best loved crooners and divas, to today’s brightest stars. Music that is timeless, enduring, elegant and of great appeal to the 35+ demographic.
