MONDAY SEPTEMBER 6th (Labour Day)
CBC Radio One
What do you get when you cross singer/songwriter Mike Ford (Canada Needs You, ex-Moxy Früvous) with the producer of The Age of Persuasion?
You get Help Wanted: Searching for Labour Day- a one-hour radio special on CBC Radio One. Join the Mike's and travel back- and forward- in time, and all over the world to explore the origins, politics, and personalities behind Labour Day, the "Charlie Brown Christmas Tree" of stat holidays. Ignored. Overlooked- and perhaps just in need of a little love.
|Keith "the Sonic Swede" Ohman, MT & host Mike Ford|
Recorded at CBC Radio's Studio 213, it's a new kind of radio/documentary/musical storytelling style.

Here's a brief home movie I took of Mike warming up, as The Swede sets up the mics:
I hope you'll tune in.
