    Synopsis

    Focusing on the 1940s to the 1970s, this film documents Peggy's journey as a switchboard operator and receptionist to becoming a writer and continuity editor at CJCA, a local radio station in Edmonton, Alberta. Her creative talents didn’t go unnoticed and soon she would go on to write scripts for radio programs, commercials for local business sponsors and lyrics for special events. Later in her career at CJCA, she worked with several community organizations promoting their causes and sitting on their committees. Aside from broadcasting, she was responsible for writing the lyrics to both the Edmonton Eskimos and BC Lions cheer songs, which continue to be sung to this day during home games. She took self-proclaimed credit for putting the word “broad” into broadcasting.
