Dead Dog Cafe Comedy Hour + Birth of Computers
At 2pm Thursday and repeated Saturday at 1 am and 5pm (ET):
The Dead Dog Café Comedy Hour. Its biting satire and irreverent tone made Tom King, Jasper Friendly Bear and Grace Heavy Hand stars. And it demonstrated to all Canadians that aboriginal people have a wicked sense of humour.
At 1 am, 6 am and noon (ET):
A look back at one of the longest running shows on CBC Radio- Ideas. Today revolutionary ideas, including, for example, 1968 when IDEAS science editor Bill Whitehead introduced listeners to the potential of a strange new thinking machine called the "computer."
