Rewind Remembering CBC's Kate "Mrs. A." Aitken (Part 1) Sep 9, 2010 | 24:59A portrait of one of the pioneers of women broadcasters here at CBC Radio- Kate Aitken, who was affectionately known as Mrs. A. Her radio show had one and a half million listeners daily. For busy housewives in postwar Canada, Kate Aitken's singsong voice was a welcome diversion from their everyday duties. Three days a week, "Mrs. A" and a rotating cast of male sidekicks shared advice on cooking, child care and fashion and offered a perspective on the broader world of women and politics. Only eight Kate Aitken programs from 1948 to 1950 survive, but they allow a glimpse into an era when "women's programming" was its own category at CBC and the ads were just part of the conversation.
