A trumpet-playing former Mountie; a jazz fiend who loves fishing; an actor with 55+ years of broadcasting under his belt; author; and foodie, Terry David Mulligan’s career has been anything but boring -- and it’s still going strong.
A well-known Canadian media personality, he’s hosted radio shows on several radio stations beyond CKUA, including CKRD, CFUN and CHUM. He has also had a long career in television broadcasting, with shows with CBC, including Good Rockin’ Tonite, MuchMusic, including MuchMusic West and BCTV. A stage and film actor, he has appeared in a long list of productions, including The Accused, The X-Files, Robson Arms, Hard Core Logo, and the 2004 Fantastic Four movie.
Terry first discovered CKUA when he walked into the station in 1995 to shoot a story for MuchMusic. “When I heard the music being played I was stunned,” he says. “This was how I heard radio in my head -- touching ALL the bases.” CKUA launched his show, Mulligan Stew, in 1995.
Terry says he finds inspiration everywhere -- including family, books, film, wine, on stage, literature, online and other radio stations around the world. “Honesty is what drives my ears and my heart. Nothing turns me off more than bogus bands and lame music.”
He was inducted into the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame in 2003, awarded a Lifetime Achievement Awards from West Coast Awards show The Leos in 2007 and named Broadcaster of the Year in BC in 2011. He is married with four children and three grandchildren.
In addition to his work with CKUA, Terry co-hosted and co-produced a TV series about wine called Hollywood & Vines with longtime friend actor/director Jason Priestley.

A fan of popular music, Terry David Mulligan is well known all across Canada for his television work with MuchMusic, CBC’s Good Rockin' Tonight, while also working on an acting career in film, stage and television. He has been producing and hosting Mulligan Stew since 1995. It's jazz, blues, rock, folk, roots and world music, all in one glorious mix. That’s why it’s called a Stew – all the ingredients find their place in the pot. For every classic track that’s stood the harsh test of time, there’s a new artist you may never had heard of, one with something special to offer. Just like a great wine, the blend is everything. Try a spoonful of Mulligan Stew for yourself.
