SATURDAYS, 10am – 11am on TEAM 1410 AMWhen Terry David Mulligan and his wife Meg moved to the Naramata Bench above Penticton four years ago, they did so because they loved the people in wine country, and the lifestyle wasn’t bad either. TDM built a radio studio in a 100 yr old barn and thus was born Tasting Room Radio. For four years now Terry has been tasting, sipping and then interviewing all those great people drawn to the wine and food business. Tasting Room Radio makes a weekly point to de-mystify the language of food and wine. “I take the daily conversations between chefs, sommeliers, wine growers/owners/makers, writers, artisans and throw in the occasional celebrity and see how the mix works. Tasting Room Radio is the radio version of an audio blend, a Meritage for the soul.”
Join wine guru Terry David Mulligan for Tasting Room Radio, Saturdays on TEAM 1410!
TERRY DAVID MULLIGAN
Television/radio personality and actor TERRY DAVID MULLIGAN has been entertaining and informing the masses on music and pop culture for over forty years. He has had a varied career starting out as a Mountie in Alberta, including a stint as a Gap spokesperson throughout the USA and the MC of the first Greenpeace concert. Appropriately, his Hall of Fame Star is laid in front of the iconic Vancouver music venue, The Commodore Ballroom.
Terry was born in New Westminster, BC and grew up in North Vancouver. He spent four years as a Mountie before he crossed the street to become a disc Jockey. Red Robinson hired him to host a radio program about pop music at CFUN in Vancouver in 1967. Although he was an extremely dedicated servant to Queen and country, in 1964, he gave up his horse to ride the airwaves. TDM spent the next two decades as a DJ at such stations as CKRD, CKLG, CFUN and CHUM. He also programmed Canada’s first underground FM station CKLG/FM, now CFOX, hosted CBC’s Great Canadian Goldrush and the nationally syndicated show, Discumentary.
For his work, Terry received Canadian Announcer of the Year and VJ of the Year awards as he branched out from radio in the 1980s to share his musical expertise on CBC’s first network video show, Good Rockin’ Tonight. This led naturally to his post at MuchMusic, where he created, produced and hosted MuchWest for 15 years. More recently, Terry David was a host and segment producer of MT-Movie Television (120 countries), and was a Senior Segment Producer and interviewer for the Star! Canada’s Entertainment Network and StarDaily!
Currently, Terry is back on the radio, as host of “Tasting Room Radio”, for foodies and wine-lovers alike, and “Mulligan Stew” a multi-genre music program he records out of his North Vancouver home.
Tasting Room Radio is in it’s fifth year. It started on air when Terry and his wife Meg were living on the Naramata Bench above Penticton. It’s a weekly one hour wine, food and entertainment radio show which Terry hosts and produces. The show is heard throughout the Okanagan, Vancouver &Vancouver Island and province wide in Alberta on the CKUA Radio Network (CKUA also broadcasts Mulligan Stew)
Terry and Jason Priestley are co-creators and co-hosts of “Hollywood andVinesTV”, a nationally syndicated food and wine TV series shown in 180 countries. The show takes them to wineries and vineyards around the globe and is entering it’s third year of production in 2012.
In between hosting and tasting wine, Terry has released a book about his varied and accomplished life (“Mulligan’s Stew. The Journey from Skunk Hollow to 10 Chickens”) along with The Province’s movie writer Glen Schaefer. By coming back to TEAM 1410, Terry David has come full circle, as the station used to be called CFUN…the very station that Terry began his prime time career on.
