      From www.itma.ie, August 2018

      More than 40 years ago, Irish-Canadian broadcaster Aidan O'Hara visited Newfoundland's Cape Shore equipped with a reel-to-reel tape recorder. He forged friendships and made recordings that have endured a lifetime. ITMA's digital exhibition, A Grand Time, brings new life to the voices featured in these recordings, making a sampler of songs, music, and stories freely available online for the first time.

      With the support of Culture Ireland, ITMA Director Grace Toland, project lead Rebecca Draisey-Collishaw, and ITMA Field Recordings Officer Brian Doyle joined Aidan and Joyce O'Hara in Newfoundland for a week-long celebration of the launch of this unique digital resource.

      One of their stops was the CHMR Radio Station at Memorial University of Newfoundland, St John's, Newfoundland, the home of the Living Heritage Podcast. Produced by the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland & Labrador in cooperation with CHMR radio, Living Heritage is a blog and podcast about “people who are engaged in the heritage and culture sector, from museum professionals and archivists, to tradition bearers and craftspeople—all those who keep heritage alive at the community level.”
