#goodbyeDNTO: Award-winning episodes
DNTO has covered a lot of ground in its 22 years on CBC Radio. From the incredible journey of a Somali refugee who swam across the Red River, to an in-depth look at sweaters, we've shared stories from coast to coast and in all shapes and sizes.
As the program takes its final bow, here's a look back at a few of our favourite episodes.
These three shows each received a Gabriel Award, which "recognize outstanding artistic achievement in media that entertains and enriches with a true vision of humanity and a true vision of life."

The power of music (2012)
It kicks off with one of our favourite stories ever—that of Jack Tueller, a Second World War fighter pilot and trumpet player. He shares the incredible tale of how his trumpet saved him from being a sniper's victim.
