ALAN WALKER’S OLD TIME CBC TV:  In Alan’s column premiering October 25, Chris Paton has a really intriguing item about a former Russian leader, Gordon Hunt recalls shooting film and racing at Westwood Race Track, Alan describes the opening of CHAN TV in Vancouver in 1960, and the results are in for the Beachcombers' quiz that was featured in last month's column. Maybe you won!   http://www.stationbreak.ca/devions_views/index.php?Alan-Walker-s-Old-Time-CBC-TV-October-25-2020-129
