In this very special segment of Art Smitten, Marcie and Tom (pictured above, demonstrating how far one should be from the microphone) interview a formidable figure in community radio, John Maizels (on left) about the origins of radio broadcasting at RMIT University, the innovative programming he played a part in, working with analogue equipment and where he sees radio in the future.



John is currently being interviewed as part of Rafal Alumairy’s independent book project A History of Student Radio in Australia, which you can follow via Facebook, Instagram and the official website.
