    Administrative history

    The radio program Memories and Music began its first broadcast on January 6th, 1974. Sponsored by International Nickel (INCO), the program aired for an hour each Sunday at noon on 92.7 CKSO-FM Sudbury, which became CIGM in 1977. Memories and Music featured a host who conducted an interview every week with a different Sudburian (or individual who lived in the outlying areas) about his or her life story while interweaving older music from the 1920's, 30's, and 40's into the broadcast during the interview breaks.

    The interviews were pre-recorded with the host either visiting the featured person at his or her home or in a neutral, quiet location such as a hotel room.

    Interview topics normally included family, immigration, mining, lumbering, railways, retail, hockey, religion, education, health care, politics, unions, and community life.

    Memories and Music ended its run in 1982.

    Gary Peck (1981 - 1982)

    Custodial history

    INCO donated most of the tapes to the Sudbury Public Library after they were broadcast on the radio station. The library transferred the tapes to the City of Greater Sudbury Archives in 2013. Vale also sent the remainder of their tapes to the archives in 2013.
