Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast: Seaside FM & the community radio legacy of Wayne Harrett

Wayne Harrett, who founded Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia community radio station Seaside FM in 2002, lost a lengthy battle with cancer earlier this month. This episode of Broadcast Dialogue – The Podcast is for anyone who has been told they don’t have a voice for or a future in radio, because Harrett didn’t let that stop him from starting and growing his own station, fuelled by his sheer passion for the medium.

Among the voices featured in this episode are Nova Scotia singer-songwriter Adam Baldwin, Halifax Regional Councillor and radio veteran Lisa Blackburn, MOVE 100 (CIOO-FM) Halifax personality and former Seaside FM volunteer Erin Hopkins, Wayne’s sister and Seaside FM board member Cindy Harrett, and Seaside FM afternoon drive host Noah Widmeyer.
