TALK! a documentary by George Orr

Postby albertaboy4life » Sat Mar 18, 2017 8:38 am

George Orr has produced a fantastic documentary on the rise and fall of talk radio in Vancouver - https://vimeo.com/207386854

Very cool to see a nod to RadioWest.ca and number of its charter members for their assistance.

I salute you, sir!

This is what we need. Some history, so people know what it was like.

It goes by so quickly.

Cheers, and many thanks.

Thoroughly enjoyed watching and major kudos to George for putting the time and energy required to get it done. Documentaries are labor of love and this one was no exception. I hope lots of listeners around for the golden era of talk radio get a chance to see it.

Well done Mr. Orr. It was great to hear and see those wonderful radio stars again, and very strange to hear Jack Webster's prophetic words at the end. As Frosty Forst put it in your documentary: "It's what Toronto wanted."

Even if you're not from Vancouver, you get to see and hear some real national radio treasures. Very well done and THANKS for doing it George!
