Basic Black from May 1992
Every day Rewind dives into the CBC Radio archives to uncover some of the voices from CBC Radio's past.
This show visits:
- a watering hole in Botswana
- talks to a young woman who's a motorcycle racing champion
- tackles the challenges of getting children to recycle
- and meets a doll that sucks its thumb.
Now that's entertainment! The program was called Basic Black and it was hosted by Arthur Black. For years it was appointment listening on Saturday mornings on CBC Radio.
The show began in 1983 and ran for almost twenty years. During that time, Arthur interviewed a stunningly diverse array of humanity.
Rewind airs Basic Black from May 1992.
