Women in early radio broadcasting wanted

24 May 2006

A researcher in British Columbia wishes to make contact with women who worked in early radio broadcasting in Winnipeg and other areas of Manitoba, and to interview them about their experiences regarding the early days of Canadian broadcasting. These women were important to their communities, especially during the Great Depression and World War Two.

Margaret Stewart, the author of Radio Ladies: Canada’s Women on the Air, is looking for any woman who was involved in radio broadcasting: English-speaking, Metis, Aboriginal, French-Canadian, or any other cultural background. The only requirement is that they were on the air in radio’s formative years, between 1924 and around 1978. Anecdotes about why radio was important in those days would be welcome as well.

If you are one of these “Radio Ladies” or you know how to get in touch with one, please contact:
