Penticton Museum Brown-Bag Lectures
February 18, 2013 by PCR

Please check out our recently added programs. In the past month, over 12 hours of new shows have been posted for your listening pleasure!

One program that is gaining a lot of attention locally is "Messages from a P.O.W." - produced and recorded by PCR Vice President Craig Henderson. CBC and Castanet have recently picked up on this touching story about the many shortwave radio listeners who conveyed messages from prisoners-of-war to their anxious families in North America during the 2nd World War. You can listen on demand via the link above, and the public also has the opportunity to hear more of the story first hand February 19th at the Penticton Museum & Archives Auditorium (785 Main St.), noon to 1:00 pm. Admission is by donation.

Last week, the Brown Bag Lecture series featured local Dennis Walker who spoke about his experiences as a local broadcaster, and next week, Peach City Radio president Dave Del Rizzo will get a chance to talk about community radio and what our group is working towards.
