Radio is dead? Not according to Mullins

Garth Mullins

Garth Mullins is an SWL and a radio geek:  yes, he’s one of us.

What’s more, Mullins believes that radio is now experiencing a renaissance.  Listen to his brilliant documentary, End of the Dial, which was recently re-broadcast on the CBC program Ideas with Paul Kennedy. Best 54 minutes you’ve ever spent.

    I got my start in a small FM station in Saskatoon—CFMC, doing overnights, then drive, then mornings. Kind of a loose format, and with such a small staff that we were all doing each others’ jobs. When the news guy went on vacation, I got to rip-and-read. Later I moved to another market, with a bigger transmitter and more audience, a tighter format and rules about what you could say and play—but the lone magic of talking into the mic and being in the ears of a complete stranger never left. It’s why I’m a Ham, I suppose. It’s already depressing that the biggies like Netherlands and Canada and others have tuned out. I hate to ponder the End of Radio—it’s like losing an untouchable, rare dimension to our human experience.

    “like losing an untouchable, rare dimension to our human experience.”

    Says it all – wish I could add to that. I cannot.

    Thank you –
