Hey,

It would seem that CBC Radio also looks through Vibrant Victoria's web forum for news stories.
I got an email from them last week to interview me on my Grandfather's Streetcar Models. Apparently the co-host of CBC Radio 2 program "On The Island" was browsing through and saw the pictures I posted and wanted to contact me for more information.

The interview was about 25minutes long, but for air time it will be cut down to about 7minutes. Its suppose to air tomorrow morning after 8am. I've asked for a copy of the interview for my records.

Pretty cool stuff.

Man this is such a great forum.

Cheers

Hey, I'll hear you, I hope. I turn on CBC in the morning from the moment I wake up to the time I close the car door and walk into the office.

It looks like it may be airing on Monday. I sent an email to confirm the date and time.

This is a quote from the CBC Radio website. "On the Island" runs from 530am to 837am.

Monday On The Island. Victoria's original green fleet.We'll take a peek at the city's streetcar past and a new museum that will commemorate it.

I heard it on Monday. Nice story.

The audio wasn't chosen for the site though, sorry.
