|Farm Forum broadcast, courtesy CBC Radio-1|
11 April, 2013, Micheal Enright's program, rewind, aired selections from the former CBC program Farm Forum, exploring issues of war time production (WW II), the changing economics of farming, the roles of women and children on the farm, the role of religion and the church in rural farm life, and so on.
This broadcast brings back so many memories -- even for me (born long afterwards). Should women work off the farm? What about softball games on Sundays? Were farmers fairly compensated for privations during the war? Sex?
Take a moment, grab a cup of coffee (or for some of you, reach into that treasured stash of POSTUM) and take a listen.
