This Day in Vancouver History....

March 15, 1922. According to local radio buff Brian Walks, Vancouver’s first radio station, CJCE, run by the Vancouver Sun, signed on today. The first night's programs featured a “Digest of the world's news” at 8 p.m. followed by music from 8:30-9:30 p.m. The station shut down in 1923.

Again, from one of my favorite sites, The History of Metropolitan Vancouver.
