Boissevain resident and long-time salesperson and hockey host on CJRB Radio, Ivan Strain, shared with us photos from his personal album of some of the events of the past decades.

In the photo gallery below, you might recognize some of the faces - or you can finally put a face to the voices you've heard on the air! 

Voices that you heard on CJRB's airwaves also were heard across Southern Manitoba under the banner of Radio Southern Manitoba (RSM)
