I have been working on a media transfer project the past while. I received around 80 hours of reel to reel tape. The tapes were my late grandfather’s. (It should be mentioned that his reel to reel inspired me to become an audio engineer.) I’m transferring all the tapes to digital. It’s a slow process but it’s a labour of love.
My grandfather was an accordionist. Well known too! He had a live radio show on CKCK in Regina long long ago. So going though the tapes I found one that has some interesting history to it. It starts with him introducing a Mr. Marconi. The first bit of the tape is missing but he mentions that Marconi is not the one who invented the radio, but his second cousin! Yes! My grandfather has him say something in Italian and then the two jam with Marconi on trumpet!
The best way to support my show if you are not able to purchase a sponsorship is a free email subscription! The traffic on my website is just as important as a sponsor to let broadcasters know that my shows are being followed by ‘real’ people! So don’t let the social media giants take all the credit, let’s support all the real people that try to make your life better and click on our pages once and a while! I share a lot of information of the local websites of the people I interview. Now with all this said…
All you have to do is fill in the two fields below. One is your name, the other is your email address. Once you have done that then just click subscribe. You will receive a confirmation email, in a minute or so, and in the email you have to click the confirmation link. Then you are done! After this point, you will receive an email from me whenever I add a new post or page to my website. You can always cancel the alerts at any time. I send around one or two emails a week at the most. And I would never sell the information on file.
Just a note, If you do not see the confirmation email, you may have to watch your junk folder because, well, just because a lot of real mail actually ends up in there.
The first part of the show is about the Campbell River film industry and how the North Island College program is preparing the region. The second part of the episode is an interview with singer Dawn Pemberton.
