Got a minute? That’s all it takes to hear Don Gordon’s excellent one-minute Museum Moments series now being aired on the lake’s radio station, 98.7FM CICV.

Gordon’s material includes a long list of one-minute sound bites — sometimes humorous and sometimes serious — but always interesting.

Researching various local history topics at the Kaatza Station Museum, his one-minute segments include titles such as The Happy Hour Club, Cougar Attack, Car Bridge Collapses and The Last Train. If you have a minute tune in to the radio station each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 6:10 a.m., 8:10 a.m. and 4:10 p.m. for Museum Moments.

The station, which has taken on a very professional sound, includes in its airtime a portion of required local content that includes music, song, open mike sessions, Museum Moments, events and so on.

Producer, John Harrison, who works behind the scenes with voice presentation, talent, and resources content for intro and outro (which is the concluding section of a piece of music or radio program) Harrison also handles recording sessions which includes Gordon’s 10 pre-recorded segments that will be broadcast at a later time. Harrison’s experience and skills have been put to good use. The station is running smoothly.

Announcer, and host of the Open Mike Show, Mike Bishop, uses his skills as front man superbly. He also has a great on air voice. It is smooth and cool as a cucumber.

Bishop is the general manager of the station and chairman of radio CICV board of directors.

Gordon, a former mayor of the town, puts his gift-of-the-gab into each of the segments and easily manages to hit the nail on the head. Narrating interesting topics while using tone and timing perfectly makes Museum Moments sound, as it should, like a story from the past.

Tune in and listen, it will only take a minute. Their signal can be also be heard on the internet at cicv.ca.
