The Dead Microphone Club

Welcome to

THE DEAD MICROPHONE CLUB

former employees and stringers of the late, great UPI Radio Network

1958 to 1999

"Here lies the UPI Radio Network. Its many children left the nest and populated worldwide journalism. Many were present at the bedside the day it died. Its unique role in Radio journalism my be that it was the greatest training ground ever invented. Its alumni, over the years, populated the world's newsrooms. It gave us a chance, and a million memories." - Dennis Daily

"Visiting the studios of UPI Radio, and meeting the people who worked there, was the only time in my life I felt I had come into contact with real, live cartoon characters." - a former NPR employee
