PSST: I’m going live on the radio on Canada Day!

UPDATE 2 Jul 2020: Thank you, everyone who tuned in. If you didn’t have a chance, here’s a link to the broadcast.

***

Cheers! Tomorrow, please tune into CBC Radio’s On the Coast, where I’ll be speaking about my great grandfather Yip Sang and the impact a visionary like him had on Canada’s development as a country. Yup. I get to talk about a real Canadian pioneer who is also related to me on Canada Day. How awesome is that?

If you’re in BC

Easy! Tune into CBC Radio One. About 5:30 pm Pacific.

If you’re not in BC

Still easy! CBC Radio online at 5:30 Pacific / 6:30 Mountain & SK / 8:30 Eastern / 9:30 Atlantic / and I am guessing 10:00 pm NL. Go to the link, choose the dropdown for any station broadcasting from British Columbia, and you’re in!

  1. Darn – I missed it. I turned the radio on but it didn’t sound like OTC was on, so I listened to a genealogy podcast instead…will see if I can catch up with it on the website!

    1. Thanks for trying! I believe CBC Radio keeps a collection of On the Coast interviews – at least I hope mine will be uploaded along with the others that are there. I’ll do a follow up post as soon as it’s up.

  2. Hello Linda – I just received your email (dated July 4th) advising that you would be On The Coast on July 1st. You will be glad to know that the podcast is online and I enjoyed listening to the podcast! Also enjoy your online posts. Salli
