Janine Mason - Charles Darwin University Nursing Museum

Morning host Peter Butler reviews a book that reflects on days of yore when HF radio ruled supreme and connected the widely dispersed remote communities of the Northern Territory.

Written by Charles Darwin University Nursing Museum curator Janie Mason and Senior Lecturer in Business Dr Susan Bandias, “Life in Radio Land - Stories from the bush before the mobile phone” is a collection of 32 stories from nurses, doctors, cattle station families, teachers, missionaries, radio-telephone technicians and operators, as well as a pilot, construction worker, tourist operator and hydrologist, from pre-World War II to the early 2000s.
