A Special Remembrance Day feature!
Thirty years ago, CKNW produced and aired a feature called "Remembrance". The SPARC Museum acquired the master tapes for its archives. It is very well done, and it will be streamed on the SPARC audio server throughout the Remembrance Day week. The show itself runs 2 hours and 15 minutes.
It is made up from the news and speech highlights from both great wars, interspersed with the popular music of the times.
At the conclusion, a portion of the late Jack Watson's Vintage Oldies program in the same vein will round out the webcast to three hours. Please enjoy it, and please remember.
This feature will run every three hours, starting at midnight... then 3 am, 6 am, 9 am, and so on.
For the next while, the three-hour-long show will be playing. This show will be heard unless we're LIVE, or playing any scheduled Program SPECIALS, as announced on this web page.
