Philip Brown, Arts'73, shared some of his photos (and one audio file) from his time at CFRC. Philip was at the station between 1970 and 1975, and had stints at FM Program Director and Chief Announcer.
Philip writes,

"During the 1973-4 renovations, I had a small studio in my parents house at 89 Lower Union Street which we informally dubbed "Studio C" to help make up for the shortage of studio space for pre-recording programs while the station was under renovation. That is where we produced most of the episodes of the infamous "Open Season" comedy and variety show."
