Life Rattle (The CD)


The stories on Life Rattle, the CD, come from the Life Rattle radio show. This half-hour program, now in its sixteenth year, features autobiographical narratives by new writers every Sunday evening, 9:00 p.m., on CKLN 88.1 FM, Toronto.
Life Rattle founders Arnie Achtman and Guy Allen search out, record and broadcast experience-based writing from Toronto communities.
Life Rattle presents a cultural alternative to passive spectatorism. Life Rattle prizes people's expression of themselves. You won't hear or see these stories anywhere else. These stories make us, our communities, our families known to others-and to ourselves.
