Newfoundland holds a unique place in the annals of Canadian broadcasting; it has two radio stations owned and operated by religious denominations. The unusual situation exists due to their already being in operation at the time of Newfoundland's confederation with Canada in 1949. Along with being the first radio station in Newfoundland, with its initial broadcasting beginning in July of 1942, VOWR operates entirely with volunteer labour. Although owned by the United Church, the station caters a multi-religious audience and has a wide base of secular as well as religious programming, drawing its volunteers from a variety of backgrounds: ministers, laypeople, priests and agnostics. It is one of the few institutions in Canada which has a waiting list for its volunteer positions. This book tells of the trials and tribulations of establishing and operating this radio station, and, in its seventy-fifth anniversary year, provides and interesting insight into the growth of broadcasting.
