Dates of existence



Operating out of Vancouver’s Chinatown, the Pender Guy radio collective grew out of a wave of Chinese-Canadian youth activism in the early 1970s. Pender Guy began airing on Vancouver Co-operative Radio (Co-op Radio) in 1976, exploring issues related to Chinese-Canadian identity, history, politics, and art through interviews, reportage, humour, drama, and music. The program was produced entirely by volunteers, and offered a way for young Chinese-Canadians to gain community media skills and counter mainstream media representation of Chinatown and Chinese-Canadians. Pender Guy ran until 1981.
