This Saturday PBS opens their doors and welcomes the listening public into their warm and inviting embrace with the annual PBS Open Day. Running from noon to early afternoon, anybody can walk to 47 Easey Street, Collingwood and right into the studio and have a look around on guided tours and enjoy some tunes. There’s also a light hearted meet-and-greet with all of the staff at the station and how often do you get to put a face to a radio personality? It’s definitely worth checking out, it’s like a barbeque at your uncle’s house if he ran a pirate radio station in his backyard.
