Episode 146: Pitch, Please
News and More: 5G is coming, and it's going to change everything. Including the Canby Municipal Code and planning regulations. Changes are also coming to the county's search and rescue efforts, as Sheriff Craig Roberts announces a new, unified team. A unique store in neighboring Aurora is closing its doors at the end of the month.
Canby Conversation: Today, we feature the story of the Oregon Trail Pitchpipers, Canby's a cappella singing group dedicated to preserving barbershop-style music. Their history in our community dates back to 1965, but for this year's show, they'll be going back way farther than that: to the founding of the country. Tickets to The Pitchpipers Present: "Songs of America," may be purchased here.
After the Break: The Oregon Trail Pitchpipers treat us to a sampling of their upcoming show on March 14 at the Canby Fine Arts Center. (Who knew "God Bless America" had more than one verse?) And, finally: A mysterious meteor, an immigrant fire chief, an Army surplus Quonset hut. It's history of our beloved Wait Park, on Canby Then.
