Remembering June Callwood, 1924-2007
Since 1995, CBC Radio's Andy Barrie has been waking up Torontonians with his warm, friendly voice and thoughtful interviews. As Barrie retires as host of CBC Radio's Toronto morning show, Metro Morning, CBC Digital Archives celebrates his career. We've got excerpts from his first day on the job at Metro Morning and the day he announced his retirement, as well as select interviews. Just for fun, we even have a 1982 CBC-TV clip in which Barrie performs card tricks.
• Callwood did not want a funeral and her wishes were respected. Instead, there was a 2.5-kilometre candlelight procession through the streets of Toronto held in her honour on April 17, 2007. More than 2,000 people took part in the event celebrating her memory, including Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty, Toronto Mayor David Miller and federal NDP leader Jack Layton.
