The as It Happens Files: Radio That May Contain Nuts Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the tradition of Peter Gzowskis The Morningside Papers comes a book that celebrates the great stories and personalities behind As It Happens.

For eight years, Mary Lou Finlay had the pleasure of being the co-host of one of CBC Radios most enduring institutions. On any given day she and Barbara Budd interviewed people on subjects varying from the Air India investigation to a man who invented a suit that would withstand an attack from a grizzly bear to a cheese-rolling contest in Cheshire. The As It Happens Files gives us the great stories - the hilarious eccentrics, the audience favourites, the poignant moments - that make up, for many Canadians some of the fondest, most vivid memories of the last decade.

From the Hardcover edition.
