Abstract: This brief review describes radio observations of colliding winds in massive stars starting with the first direct observational support for the colliding wind model advanced in the early 1990's to explain non-thermal radio and thermal X-ray emission in some massive stars. Studies of the well-studied and highly-eccentric WR+O star system WR 140 are described along with recent observations of O-star systems. Also discussed is the binary nature of almost all massive stars that exhibit non-thermal behavior and some strategies for finding new systems.
