Combining information from various sources including a primitive and out-of-date radio channel list from a Telus tech, I compiled an updated list of Optik Radio Channels, as of November 2016.  It includes some clues about programming content, some of it from Wikipedia based on their terminology.  I present this table with comma field separators so that it can be copied and pasted into a .csv file that can be read by Excel into a spread sheet.

Hey, @TVabstainer glad there is someone else tuned in to radio channels. I just recently subscribed to Optik and what a mess! The majority of the radio channels are unlistenable due to static and/or hum. How long has it been like this? Called Support but they must work in a vacuum making me go through numerous tests with my system. Just turn on the TV and you'll hear the problem!

Telus website states:  "Radio stations are broadcast in Dolby Digital for great sound quality". They should update that or fix the channels!
