Episode 182: World’s Best Hobby – Dave Bell W6AQ on HamRadioNow
“Until the Internet age, Dave Bell W6AQ was the most prolific producer of television programs about Amateur Radio, most of them aimed at a general audience on real, broadcast TV stations and networks. “World’s Best Hobby” is Dave’s memoir. It begins with his introduction to Ham Radio as a teenager, and follows his life into family and his career as a television producer (a ‘real’ television producer) with his radio hobby always by his side. In this episode, Dave talks to Gary about the book, and how he was able to produce a series of Ham Radio oriented programs with major TV stars and personalities in an era when television production was expensive, complicated and fairly rare.
