Global Village

Network: CBC Radio

Broadcast Run: 1995 to 2007

Broadcast Medium: Radio

Aired Saturday evenings on Radio Two from June 8, 1995 to March 17, 2007. Originally a summer series, Global Village was added to the regular Network schedule on February 24, 1996. It was an hour-long program hosted by Jowi Taylor featuring music from around the world , sometimes known as World Beat. But it also had an editorial angle that offered listeners “the news of the world in the world of music”. Documentary reports from CBC Radio’s foreign correspondents offered insight into other countries and their particular cultural and political struggles.

 Host: Jowi Taylor.  Producer: Ann MacKeigan
