about

Before the internet, before TV, Manitoba was a hotbed for innovation in radio. These innovations range from the first publically-owned radio station to the first play-by-play broadcast of women's hockey. During World War II, a Winnipeg broadcaster was as well-known in England as Churchill. And Neil Young's very first recording was done at a local station. These are but a few of the stories of early radio in Manitoba. In its first half century, the medium was a powerful, revolutionary force that touched and linked virtually everyone in the province.
Garry Moir has had a career in broadcasting that spans more than 40 years, and includes work at CBC radio and several other private radio and television stations. He has served as a correspondent for Maclean's, a contributor to Time, and broadcasting instructor at Red River College. He lives in Winnipeg.

Editorial Reviews

"Veteran broadcaster Garry Moir, familiar to older listeners of CBC, private radio stations in Manitoba and graduates from Red River Community College, manages to touch on the magic - the strong connection between listener and host, the business, the politics, the characters and a range of anecdotes and historical firsts - to satisfy a wide range of readers with this colourful history." - Winnipeg Free Press
