Porter Hall in Montreal (not Ottawa)

Here is a link to the first radio show after Porter Hall's recent relocation to Montreal. As such, it is a landmark in the group's history, as no member was actually present in the radio station for the broadcast, though of course adjunct MC faculty Fez & Boston Carlyle worked the board and threw in their two bits.

Funny thing about the above picture. I typed "Porter Hall" in for the google image search, and this was one of the first things that came up, with a caption reading "Porter Hall at Carleton University in Ottawa Friday, September 13th, 1985." At first I thought it was a Canadian band named Porter Hall, but quickly surmised that it was, in fact early 80s Ottawa punks the Randy Peters and that "Porter Hall" is a building on the campus of Carleton.

The funny thing is, our Porter is supposed to hook up with a couple of old friends who now host the Harvey Christ Radio Hour (a live weekly radio show heard every second Tuesday night 11-12AM EST on CKUT 90.3 FM in Montreal) but were also among the lucky few who witnessed the very early days of Mannlicher Carcano. I am referring of course to Reverends Norm (Jan) Desrosiers and... Randy Peters! These are the kinds of amazing coincidences that Improvisational Audio Collage is all about!
