Great Radio Hijinx at Northern Service!

During a strike at the CBC in Frobisher Bay some comedic geniuses went undercover to create quite possibly one of the funniest and most audacious broadcasts to ever occur in the north!

It is rumoured that northern recording stars Charlie Panigoniaq and William Tagoonna participated in this off-the-wall broadcast from the early 80s - aired on the Northern Service radio during a CBC workers strike.

"The story and the tapes began circulating around the cassette underground in the early-eighties: an Inuit Radio station operated in Northern Canada by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) was vacated by its regular staff due to a CBC strike, and the station was temporarily programmed by its Eskimo janitor and his buddies.
