The Peaking Canuck Show
Show 10, Sept 3, 1993:

Fall is in the air and that means a new hockey season is on the horizon, so the show leads off with sound clips from Hockey Night in Canada along with the Hockey Night in Canada song by Toronto’s Shuffle Demons.

This show's got the blues - part two of the ongoing migration of Americans to Canada to avoid American government persecution of it's people. This show deals with Africville, a community in Halifax that was bulldozed by the racist City Council of Halifax, Nova Scotia. They were kicked out of their homes and persecuted by Canada after migrating through the Underground Railroad 200 years ago. Paid 500 bucks to move on. Some of the audio clips were taken from a Royal Commission held on Africville which was held in 1980.

The second half of the show is the more humorous side.

Also heard for the only time here on the radio was a compilation of practically every “Holy” as spoken by Robin of Batman and Robin, from the Original 1960’s TV shows. I watched every show, and dubbed out all of the “Holy’s” and mixed them altogether. Took a hundred hours. What a total waste of time!
