Inside CJCA

One Moment Please provides an insider’s view of CJCA in the 1950s. The staff newsletter was first published in 1953, and the original Editor, Joan McKee, has preserved the early years’ issues, which we have presented here (click to see them). Especially notable are the staff bios and details of their then-current activities.

Back in 1953, there were only two private stations in Edmonton: CJCA and CFRN. It would be next year before television came to Edmonton, or CHED went on the air; CFCW also came on the air in 1954, but was almost impossible to hear in Edmonton with 250 watts in Camrose. It was  such a different world back then!
