My Grandfather Rocks!

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!

Can’t wait to share these recordings!

Episode 8 New Year Take Out 2018

Well… 2018 is well underway, no turning back. But how do we make it through the busy day? Take out of course! In the Comox Valley, there are some daily rituals and they have to be followed in order, or do they? The show is on air this week on ShawTV Channel 4 in the North Vancouver Island region.

I made sure that I was in ‘character’ by having a just woke up look with my hair. Seriously, we make every effort to get the realism happening here at ‘the crossroads’! So take out something for yourself! 😉
