Happy 75th Birthday, CBC

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) turned 75 yesterday. “Long before I was a CBC host, I was a CBC fan. I would sit home and listen to Peter Gzowsky and learn about my culture through him,” CBC radio host Jian Ghomeshi said in an audio essay, his “homage” to the national public broadcast.

From the rainbow butterfly to the exploding pizza, CBC logos, like CBC, have been “ever evolving and sometimes controversial,” CBC site points out.

“We’ve come a long way from a crackly, mono AM radio transmission on that November day, 75 years ago,” Ghomeshi said.

November 4, 1936
CBC Radio goes on air. BC Chairman Leonard Brockington told listeners they can “expect many new things from the new broadcaster. Its governors, he said, have ideas and ideals that are ‘almost as numerous as apple blossoms in the Annapolis Valley or peach blossoms in the Okanagan,'” CBC Digital Archives reads. “It is hoped that the radio in Canada will be a welcome guest at your family fireside, and not a skeleton in your family cupboard,” Brockington said.

“This is one of the ties that bind this country, and we can feel it sitting here each day from Kelowna to Calgary to Cambridge to Cornwall to Corner Brook. Our goal is a national dialogue, and a continued voyage of discovery, a role in the shaping of what it means to be Canadian, a window into the rest of the world,” Ghomeshi said. “It’s only about content. It’s never perfect, but it is ever evolving.”

“Happy 75th Birthday CBC! You’re in your golden years! So wise (@cbc), with great taste in music (@cbcradio2), and still hip (@cbcradio3)!!” Canadian singer-songwriter Jill Barber tweeted.

“Happy Birthday @cbc! Part of my everyday, and linked to so many great memories from childhood onward,” @cwilhelmson wrote.

It’s a “golden age of public radio,” Ghomeshi noted. “Like the railroad, it’s hard to imagine this country without public broadcasting, so let’s not if thats okay.”

We at the Vancouver Observer send you the warmest wishes for the happiest birthday ever. Keep talking to us, CBC. Canada wouldn’t be Canadian without you.
