Earlier this year, I pitched and produced a radio pilot for CBC, based on Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids, the reading series I started a few years ago. The show was a mix of some of my favourite readings from the live events, and some reflection about the role and function of nostalgia in our lives.

Of the things I’ve done in radio so far, this is one of the things I’m most proud of.

The show didn’t get picked up, but the pilot is going to air as part of The Lab on CBC Radio One tonight, Friday, August 21, 2009 at 7:30PM (8:00 in Newfoundland), right after As It Happens.

Or you can listen to the whole show right here:


You can also download the MP3 file of the whole show.

I’d love to know what you think of the show. Or better yet, I’d love it if you let CBC Audience Relations know what you think. Call 1-866-306-4636 or email them using the form on this page. Make sure you include the show name (“The Lab / Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids”) and the airdate: 7:30PM on August 21, 2009.</div>
