Dr. Henry Poole of the University of Nanaimo explains why some Canadian towns banned the radio in the 1930s. Producer Donald Pambeau explains why his show 'Chip Off Another Block' was so ground breaking when it aired in 1964. We sit down with CBC's first Director of Music, 93 year-old Horvath Dulet.
