Radio Active '22: The Future Of Audio & A Few Other Things

By Doug Thompson

For the first time since the Covid pandemic knocked the world for a loop, Canadian Music Week was back for its 40th anniversary.  The first two days (June 7th and 8th) were sessions on all things audio.


The first day was live, in-person sessions with an enthusiastic group of broadcasters and podcasters.

The keynote speaker on the first day was radio futurologist and podcaster James Cridland, who discussed Radio’s Bright Future: Ideas for Canada from Around the World. Cridland also led the day's first session, “Building A Strategy for The Future,” where he discussed the art of collaboration and breaking through with new avenues of thinking.  Ross Davies had this to say about Cridland: “James never fails to bring forward new and fascinating ideas, concepts and suggestions. He never disappoints. This was certainly the case again this year at the CMW Radio Active conference in Toronto.  His opening keynote and follow-up panel discussion set the tone for a terrific day of industry discussion and knowledge sharing.”
