All the Best is a documentary storytelling program broadcasting on the Community Radio Network in Australia. I was the staff executive producer and host for the program in 2012/2013, later acting as a volunteer executive producer with the very talented Giordana Caputo. We helped get radio collectives get set up in a few states, launching the program from its Sydney base at FBi Radio to a national program.
We broadcast wonderful, sound-rich stories from communities and independent producers— and got great responses to our programs.
One of those was My Man and Me, written by Tim Bishop, who also co-produced the piece. I was lucky enough to help him put it together. My Man and Me was a finalist for an Australian Human Rights Award in 2014. Read Tim’s moving reflection on sharing this ‘core’ story on his website (and check out the rest of his songs and stories- he’s brilliant).
The piece was also aired on ABC Radio National
