The Vancouver Pen Club on CBC Radio One!

We had the pleasure of introducing CBC Radio One's Matthew Parsons (an associate producer of CBC's "North by Northwest" program) to the Vancouver Pen Club at our February 19th meeting, held at the Terry Salman branch of the Vancouver Public Library.

Matthew conducted a series of short interviews during the meeting with some of our members, and the interviews were included in a recent episode of "North by Northwest" about our club (and the fountain pen hobby, in general) that aired on Sunday March 3rd.

Link to the audio: https://www.cbc.ca/listen/shows/the-story-from-here/episode/15675348
(the segment about our club starts at the 05:35 mark and concludes at the 17:35 mark, but there's also a nice intro by Gloria Macarenko from 00:00 to 00:30).

Many thanks to Matthew, CBC Radio One, all those who were interviewed, and all who attended the meeting! (photos from the meeting will be posted in the next few days, here on our website)

Cheers ~Maja
