Over the past 41 years the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives have collected an array of audio recordings covering a variety of topics and styles. Interviews, radio shows, music, protests and home recordings have all been donated to the CLGArchives. Beginning on February 21 at 6 p.m. and ending on February 22 at 6 p.m. the tapes will be broadcasted continuously for the 24 hour period. Many of these tapes have not been heard in decades and they document extraordinary material from well-known figures and some from ordinary community members.Throughout the broadcast each tape will be digitized and cataloged in attempts of preservation.
This is a free event being put on by the CLGArchives and are three ways to listen to the experience in real time:
1. Visit shops and restaurants along Church St. where the audio will be played.
2. Visit the CLGArchives at 34 Isabella St. where you can experience the tapes as a group. Coffee and tea will be provided.
3. Listen at any location with at http://buddiesinbadtimes.com/listen
