CKGI takes you to the pub at the Surf Lodge on Gabriola Island, for these in-concert performances by musicians living on one of the most tuneful places on earth. Host Steve Elder also sits down with each of the featured guests to talk about their music, and the life behind that music.
“Resonating Reconciliation” is a project that engages community radio to help reconcile all Canadians with the history of Indian Residential Schools, to help build grassroots skills among community-based broadcasters in respectful reporting on the ongoing legacy of Indian Residential Schools, and provide a lasting record of survivors’ experiences.
It does this by funding 40 community radio stations across the Canada to each produce a 30-minute radio documentary on the legacy of Indian Residential Schools in their community, with additional funding to recruit and provide training to local Aboriginal volunteers, producers, and trainees.
In this excerpt from CKGI's "Gabriola Current," Frank Moher talks with Elizabeth Beale and Thomas Harding, the Gabriola couple who built their dream eco-cottage/retirement home on the island -- and then had to tear it down.
In this excerpt from "Gabriola Current," Nicholas Heather looks at a new movement that's keeping yoga accessible to everyone who'd like to enjoy its benefits -- karma yoga.
