Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio host brought Fresh Air
Friday, January 31, 2003, Page R15
Toronto -- One of Canada's best-loved radio voices has died. Bill McNEIL, who was host of such Canadian Broadcasting Corporation current-affairs shows as Fresh Air and Voice of the Pioneers, has died at age 78.
A native of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Mr. McNEIL got his start as a reporter before switching over to the microphone.
A friend and former colleague, former Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news anchor Knowlton NASH, worked with Mr. McNEIL on and off over the years. Mr. McNEIL, he said, never forgot his maritime roots. "You could never get the Cape Breton part out of Bill."
Mr. McNEIL spent 42 years with the corporation. Along the way, he also wrote six books, one of which was a popular compliation of material from Voice of the Pioneers.
In the Centennial year of 1967, he drove across the country recording conversations with Canadians. Many of the encounters were with Canadians who remembered the early days of homesteading, gold rushes and world wars and together they chronicled the lives of pioneers at a time of dwindling numbers.
Mr. McNEIL retired in 1992, though not before his fans twice filled Toronto's Roy Thomson Hall to hear his last shows.
He died of kidney failure on Wednesday.

Alexander Wallace " Dusty" MacNEVIN
The family of Alexander Wallace "Dusty" MacNEVIN regretfully announce his passing on August 11, 2003.
Born in Prince Edward Island 75 years ago, Dusty left school following grade 10 towards a career in light-weight boxing, in which he excelled for several years. Ultimately, he shifted towards employment...a bit more promising...in the field of telecommunications. He fell in love with the lovely Mary SURETTE of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. They travelled together raising their four children, Alan (Little Current, Ontario), Donald (predeceased 1977), Sandra (Fresno, California) and David (Stoney Plain, Alberta). Installation of Northern Telecom equipment brought them to camps, cottages and villages and towns throughout Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec where they settled and raised their family in Greenfield Park, Montreal. Dusty's career progressed through the years, he quickly became an encyclopaedia of telecommunication technology. In 1974 they ventured off to Istanbul, Turkey for the first of several international postings..his job title changing to "Project Manager" His spirit was captured and he began his love with the Turkish people, culture and magic. He guided and helped to create the communication system in Turkey, gaining the respect, admiration and appreciation of many Northern Telecom co-workers and the newly evolving Netush employees. He was of the true pioneer spirit. A vast amount of telecommunication history was celebrated with his knowledge and expertise. After a brief return to work in Canada, Dusty followed his heart, returned to Istanbul and founded a lovely retreat/home in Datça. Cosmopolitan days were over. He happily, and with enormous pride, created his own "Canadian Place" filling the yard with fig trees, apricots and dates! Dusty remarried a wonderful and beautiful lady, Tarlan, and they completely enjoyed their new life together. Alexander Wallace never once forgot or neglected his Canadian heritage, family and Friends, encouraging their visits and sometimes paying their transport...to come and stay in their Turkish homes. He also kept a close eye on his children and grandchildren and lucked out having a wonderful step daughter Emine and brand new grandchild! Two years ago, Dusty survived a massive CVA, fought long and hard to beat the deficits it includes...and he won. Dusty was again, living at his home, enjoying his marriage with Tarlan and experiencing the wonder of Istanbul when he suddenly passed away.
You were an amazing, interesting and good man, Dusty. You will be missed.
