Join CFRC’s Rick Jackson, host of At The Movies, this summer as he plays half a century years of Canadian musicians and their hits. Airing every Sunday from 1 to 3 pm EST, 50 Years of Canadian #1s! will feature an incredible assortment of over 200 artists drawn from airplay charts in Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Kingston and Belleville. The show starts Sunday, May 19 with The Crew-Cuts 1954 hit, “Sh boom” which spent 9 weeks at #1. Other artists featured include Paul Anka, whose song “Diana” was #1 on the CHUM charts in 1957, Bobby Curtola, Lords of London, The Poppy Family, Edward Bear, The Skylarks (who charted #1 in Vancouver), Chilliwack, Bob and Doug Mackenzie (#1 with ‘Take Off’ in 1981) and The Blushing Brides, #1 in Kingston with ‘What You Talking About’ in 1982.
Tune in this summer on Sundays, and enjoy the sometimes unusual history of Canadian hits!
CFRC has received funding through the National Campus and Community Radio Association to recruit an Indigenous person for a 6-week residency to create a feature-length audio documentary on the impacts of residential schools on our communities.
Potential areas of focus include: interviews with first and second-generation survivors, elder and youth perspectives, survivors and the prison system, and critical explorations of the Truth and Reconciliation commission and its processes.
The resident will receive free audio recording and radio production training from CFRC, free access to CFRC’s digital audio production studios and portable audio recorders, and a $1500 honorarium for completing the project. No previous broadcast experience is required. Candidates are asked to submit a 1-page statement of interest for the project by Monday, June 17 at 4pm.
For more information, please contact email@example.com, call 613-533-2121 or visit NCRA.ca.
