Our tour of Ontario radio stations continued with a day trip to campus radio station CFRU in Guelph, about an hour west of Toronto. There we met with programme manager Christopher Currie, who introduced us to some of the station’s radio producers. CFRU recently started to carry Radia shows, so we presented an overiview of the network’s activities.

Introducing the Radia network

Rachel Elliott from the International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation interviewed us for her Sound It Out show which you can listen to here. We then had time to visit the university’s world-class arboretum before returning to play a live improvised set, which ended just in time to catch the last bus back to Toronto.
