Administrative history

In 1974 Vancouver Co-operative Radio received their first license from the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission and proceeded to set up a station at 399 Carrall Street beside Vancouver's Pigeon Park. Vancouver Co-operative Radio aired its first show on April 14, 1975 and has been on the air ever since. In [ca. 1995] Co-op Radio moved locations to 337 Carrall Street and then again to 370 Columbia in 2001. In 2014 the station temporarily relocated to 2014 Wall Street due to building renovations but returned to 370 Columbia Street in 2017. A non-commercial, co-operatively-owned and listener-supported station, its mandate has been to provide space for under-represented and marginalized communities in the media. Additionally, the station has offered an alternative to conventional media and challenges mainstream media coverage.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Also included in the fonds are published program guides and four video recordings showing news segments about Co-op Radio and Co-op Radio events and happenings.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


Records belonging to Vancouver Co-operative Radio arrived in boxes that presented no discernible original order. The current arrangement was constructed by the archivist to improve searchability by radio program and to differentiate between the program recordings and program guides through the creation of two distinct series.
