Although the apology for the seeming electrical glitch that essentially filled the hour follow below, I have essentially re-created the ‘show’ that day with the full segments in the title.

Apologies – I am not sure what seems like electrical interference is causing the intense feedback for the first essentially half of this hour. But seems to have affected our archives from about 3pm until 5:50 today. I don’t know if it’s fixable. I will attempt again tomorrow to upload the segments if it clears up, but as already saved in the archives, it’s doubtful. My deepest apologies.

February 17, 2017, 4-5pm – first hour of a two hour show. Note: This is a re-recreation of the show because of audio problems in the live stream that day. Please see notes below. This show features from an October 25th event, you’ll hear John Steffler’s lecture from the 2016 Page Lecture Series. It was the fifth lecture in that annual series. Phil Hall, who created it as a tribute to Joanne Page, introduced him that day. The lecture is preceded by a short poem from a dear friend, Paul Kelley. He had written it as a tribute in memory of Joanne and asked if I would read it on the show this week.

Original apologies below – I have essentially re-created the show to allow John Steffler’s lecture in full in this segment. His Q&A, and Phil Hall’s comments follow in the second hour along with 3 readings from another event.

Apologies – I am so sorry for what appears to be some sort of electrical feedback that must have been picked up as this segment was sent to archives. It sounded fine on air. Looking into CFRC’s archives, it seems the problem began shortly after 3pm, intensified at 4pm and lasted until approx. 5:50. My deepest apologies. I will attempt to try to upload if the system corrects itself.
