Hundreds join CBC 75th Anniversary Open House
What a wonderful day!
More than 800 listeners came down to CBC Radio's Pandora Avenue Station to meet and chat with hosts and staff.
There were prizes, treats and many people took a turn behind the microphone to record a station ID (Listen to hear them on the air around 7:10 every weekday morning).
Quirks and Quarks host Bob McDonald's clever science-themed creation won the hosts' apple-pie baking contest. The judges were CBC/CHEK anchor Tony Parsons, Monday mag editor Grant McKenzie, reporter Lisa Cordasco, CBC radio news editor Catherine Rolfsen and poet Wendy Morton.
Dozens of backyard apple varieties were identified by experts at the BC Fruit Testers table while the muffins from Camosun sold out and the apple cider supply was drunk dry at the LifeCycles table.
Thanks to our audience helpers: Kim Meldrum, Ebony Johnson, Francisco Melara, Matt Mathiason, Coleen Rabatich and Joan Athey.
And thanks to everyone who came for making it a great 75th anniversary party.
