Dave Farough has a lot of ideas about radio. Today he published some of those ideas on his LinkedIn page entitled “If I Had a clean Sheet of Paper” and I asked them if I could add them to my page – and then the only thing that was missing, was the companion podcast.
On this Canada Day in 2017, we spent our time talking about radio and tossing out ideas that could move it forward. So of these ideas aren’t new – but they also haven’t been tried yet. This episode is why I started the podcast: To table new ideas about what radio could be.

Would this happen to be the same Dave Farough that single handily, reduced CJOB to a mere shadow of itself? Consultant? If it is, buyer beware!
I would take issue with the words single handedly. No one person can single handedly do anything of that nature at a large radio company. When decisions get made, there are up to a dozen people involved. CJOB’s decline was clearly a group effort. Unloading Hal Anderson and Charles Adler was unhelpful. Most of the “budget friendly” moves that ensued were also listener unfriendly. And CBC’s shift to FM along with a fresh infusion of Liberal cash meant it could steamroll CJOB digitally. One of my recent podcast guests made a great point that the station’s fate was sealed after they failed to get the rights to broadcast the Jets after being a loyal Manitoba Moose partner for years.
