Flyback Fridays - Louis Potvin 2012 - Mountain FM - short version

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past!  This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

This is a short excerpt from Louis Potvin's presentation about how Mountain FM got started.  Louis explains the various technical issues that were solved in order to broadcast the radio station up and down the Sea to Sky.  Louis also talks about the original CRTC application and how they got an antenna on the Lion's Gate bridge.  The creation of Mountain FM was of great benefit to local residents in navigating the road conditions on the Sea to Sky highway and for the sharing of community information throughout the Sea to Sky region.  Watch it here.
