Canadian broadcaster Vicki Gabereau was host of Gabereau, a two-hour daily interview show that ran on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) radio from 1985 to 1997. A popular and beloved host, she interviewed many interesting people, some famous and some not-so-famous. Among them was the Canadian poet Patrick Lane who described what his life was like in the early 1960s in a small northern BC mill town. He also reads from some of his short stories. It’s grim. Appallingly grim. This webpage is linked to “Some to misery are born,” a line from William Blake’s poem Auguries of Innocence. The interview was probably done in the early 1990s.
