Rewind - CBC celebrates 75 years of CBC Personalities (Clip 6)Sep 8, 2011 | 7:26Rewind CBC celebrates 75 years of CBC Personalities (Clip 6) Audio
Rewind CBC celebrates 75 years of CBC Personalities (Clip 6) Sep 8, 2011 | 7:26Allan McFee spent more than 52 years at CBC Radio, starting in 1937, when he joined the announce staff. Allan McFee was charming and entertaining, irreverent and ornery. Allan had a reputation early on as a rebel at CBC, clashing with producers and bureaucrats who tried in vain to make him toe the line. There are many Allan McFee stories- for instance, he always carried a special pen so he could scribble “POOP” across memos from CBC managers...there was the time he set fire to a memo he didn’t like that was posted on a bulletin board. The time he dotted the studio ceiling with asparagus tips he'd thrown in the air. And for almost a year he delivered the weather forecast for Dribble Lake, Ontario. Except that there was no Dribble Lake, Ontario. Besides general announce duties, Allan hosted Eclectic Circus. It was full of music, stories and a lot of the McFee brand of whimsy.
