The View From (Way) Back There

Just found this excerpt from a video about my old radio station, CKCU-FM, in Ottawa. I think it was shot in about 1984. Who designed those early '80s glasses, anyway? And why did we wear 'em?

Damn, I wish I still had that red flannel shirt, though. What happened to that thing?

And, sad to say, you still can't hear Ornette Coleman on commercial radio.

Oh boy. Makes me homesick. I've been with a non-commercial radio station in Moscow in 1992-1998; we still used jingle cartridges, tape machines etc. back then, so everything looks very familiar.

Glasses, yes. And haircuts!
