CBC Radio Doc : The Other Side of the Glass

Someone was stabbed outside the bookstore window when I was working there years ago at Queen and Sherborne. This was the first radio doc I ever made, and WOOOOH, was it a ride.

This Radio Doc, made by myself and pal Marion Gruner was a popular feature documentary on CBC Radio.

Thanks to Mrs Huntley and Steven Huntley from Wellington Hall, and Meghan Connelly from Riverside Glen!
