# 62 CBC Radio

CBC, Canada's national radio and TV, is a bit of an unknown treasure.
Our clock radio alarm is set to CBC Calgary, a gentle way to start the morning.    

During the day, I'll listen to CBC podcasts while baking or knitting. 

Stories, music and gentle humour?  You might enjoy the Vinyl Cafe with Stuart McLean.

Another favourite is Randy Bachman's, Vinyl Tap. Randy is a Canadian musician  (The Guess Who; Bachman-Turner Overdrive).  He has an incredible music background.  His shows feature classic rock, usually based on a theme, with lots of background information and stories shared.

CBC - tune in!


  1. Listened to CBC lots when Peter Gzowski was doing Morningside. I feel lucky to have been able to hear him and his program.

  2. Peter was very personable!! I also enjoyed Don Harron who was host of Morningside the five years before Peter Gzowski. Their styles were very different, but both were very intelligent people.
