Brave New Waves – Home Recordings

For a few years I recorded entire overnight broadcasts of the CBC Radio program “Brave New Waves“. This started on a Sony reel to reel deck, then progressed to Hi-Fi VHS.  I would then transfer only the music to TDK SA-90 cassettes to make mix tapes. I did record each tapes track listing, and at one time I had a scan of them, but that has been lost to time so unfortunately there is no index available..

45 Minute example of the over 30 hours available on the Internet Archive

Brave New waves ran weeknights from around 11PM to 4 AM. On the weekends there was Nightlines with similar hours. For several years, Nightlines was broadcast from my hometown of Winnipeg and I was able to meet the host, Ron Robinson, a truly unique and fascinating radio personality. Ron still broadcasts on local community radio CKUW.

These 2 shows were a very big part of my life for quite a span of time, would love to somehow know the total hours I spent listening. As well, I was able to have some very terrible self-produced music broadcast on both shows. Hopefully a few people find this archive enjoyable.
