The Royal Canadian Air Farce celebrates 20 years on radio

The Story

Three of the original members of CBC radio’s Royal Canadian Air Farce are in the Midday studio to talk about their show, which has been on air for 20 years.  Luba Goy, Roger Abbott and Don Ferguson talk to Tina Srebotnjak about keeping the show fresh, performing live, and how they began raising funds for charity during their live tapings.  Of course the conversation is peppered with some of their favourite characters, and they discuss just how far they can take their humour without crossing acceptable boundaries.
