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.

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.
