    Default Blast from the past.......

    This year, CBC radio (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) is celebrating 75 years on the air. I have been listening to bits and pieces of the stuff, and tonight, I heard: And now, the latest from the Allied Front....... The Voice of Doom, better known to most as Pa Cartwright.Was kind of eerie hearing that intro to a newscast because I have only heard about the Lorne Green news reports.

    They also did short bit if a Wayne and Shuster skit; this duo should be known to the olde pharts as they were regulars on The Ed Sullivan Show.

    The other voices I heard were probably only relevant to Canadians: Austin Willis, Pierre Burton, and I think I heard Paul Soles whose voice was that of Spiderman/Peter Parker in the original cartoon series.

    Living in the US half of the year, I must admit I do miss the CBC. Enjoy!

    You can catch CBC radio on line, and there will likely be replays of the anniversary broadcasts
