In November 1945, Willard Bishop, a young music enthusiast, and his ham-radio-operator father launched the Annapolis Valley's first commercial broadcasting service. The makeshift radio studio they created in the back rooms of their Windsor, Nova Scotia, home eventually grew into a unique network of five AM radio stations and an FM service. In this personal memoir, Bishop describes his experiences on and off the airwaves. From early technical innovations and mobile broadcasts to his passion for music and flying, Bishop's story offers a heartwarming, often humorous look at the man behind the microphone.
a significant addition to the little shelf of books recounting the history of radio broadcasting in Atlantic Canada by one who has lived it and helped set its course. Gil McElroy, Atlantic Books Today
