Radio has been 'dying' for decades -- but despite all the dire predictions, the old girl just keeps on ticking. As a former morning show producer with Vancouver's upstart Roundhouse Radio, and in my many years as a regular contributor and associate producer for CBC Radio, I saw plenty of evidence that radio is actually the most responsive, current, budget-friendly, flexible media there is. Nothing else has the power to unite a wide audience within a single, intimate moment the way radio does. And with the advent of podcasting - the equivalent of a scalpel-free facelift, I'd even venture to say Radio is looking younger these days. Call me a sentimentalist - but radio is my first love. She may be a tough old thing, but she has a heart of gold. Here's just a smattering of the pieces I've made for CBC Radio. Hope you enjoy them. The rest are available either at Mossisnice on Soundcloud, or via the CBC Radio Archives.
