20 years ago, Kootenay Co-op Radio was a sparkle in the eyes of locals who felt the Kootenays needed a community radio station that expresses the unique spirit of the area. Since that time, we’ve built a radio station that broadcasts to communities throughout the West Kootenay and reaches even more listeners through internet streaming.
Member-owned and operated Kootenay Coop radio (CJLY) has served up eclectic music programming and spoken word shows exploring local issues, opinions, and events happening in our community. With almost 100 hours of original programming created by our passionate team of volunteer hosts each week, KCR is the destination for listeners who want an authentic Kootenay experience in French and English.

Recently, we just opened up our new modern Italian restaurant, Marzano. We embarked on a trip to Naples, Italy in 2017. We enrolled in a one week course from one of the most revered, legendary pizzaiolas, Enzo Coccia, to understand the tradition and methods behind preparing the dough and working the forno. The course was rewarding and eye opening as we learned a century-old hand stretching dough techniques and simple authentic recipes. In addition to these well-guarded methods, we discovered the beauty of pure, fresh ingredients. The San Marzano tomato is a cornerstone ingredient that the locals take pride in as it is native only to the rich volcanic soil of the area. We were inspired by this and felt we needed to take the same care in selecting our ingredients, hence the name, Marzano as an homage to quality and authenticity.
We welcome you to come check out Nelson’s new restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week.

Stand out and settle in: personalize your space
You’ve finally found the home of your dreams, but interior design-wise, something isn’t quite right. You want your space to feel comfortable, inviting, and inspiring, but you don’t quite know how to improve the energy in your home and preserve your personal aesthetic. After all, you deserve rooms that are an extension of your life and style.
Custom window treatments and soft furnishings like curtains, blinds, and cushions are much the same as the accessories that finish an outfit and take it to the next level. But when it comes to your space, you’re unsure where to start. It’s easy for you to feel overwhelmed when it comes to fabric choices, or stifled by the drab generic options that big-box stores offer—and the least expensive options usually mean you sacrifice quality and durability. You’re tired of suffering in a sad, uninspired, or impersonal living space and you’re ready for an upgrade.
Kootenay Interiors understands that you’re looking for something unique that fits your style. You may already have a vision, and just need the right professional to source, design, and execute from start to finish. Browse our social media channels and check out the online shop, then call or email for a free quote on making your space one-of-a-kind.
