    I’m in Love! Love is blind! Re-visited!!!!

    5 years ago today, I wrote this blog about Canada’s 150th Birthday. It has aged surprisingly well….

  • The Real Roy Hennessy

    The Real Roy Hennessy

    The second Program Director and the first General Manager I reported to was Roy Hennessy. He was my PD at CHED Edmonton and he gave me my first PD job at CITI Winnipeg. To say Roy was fun to work with is an inadequate description. Radio was no different than Hollywood with Roy. His people […]

  • Rolling Stones Unzipped

    Rolling Stones Unzipped

    Rolling Stones fans will LOVE the exhibit of nearly 300 articles at #THEMUSEUM in Kitchener entitled #Unzippedkw In terms of quality, this finely curated collection of Stones photos, equipment, instruments, posters, song and lyric sheets, album art and posters, stage fashion wardrobes and a few other visual treats like a replica recording studio and a […]

  • We’ve moved again!

    We’ve moved again!

    Relocating has never been an uncomfortable concept to us. In 40 years of marriage we’ve sold and bought and rented 10 homes. Up until now, our residential adventures have exclusively been the result of a new employment opportunity for me. Although there were times we’d have preferred not to move, in hindsight, it was always […]

  • First Flight in 2 years

    First Flight in 2 years

    Up until this weekend, the last time I was on a plane? November 21st 2019. None of us knew what was coming so that occasion went uncelebrated. I went to Jamaica with my son. Back then, I took a short haul from Ottawa to Toronto on a Saturday night and stayed at an airport hotel […]

  • My cup runneth over. Father’s Day, First day of summer, special sunrise, selling a car on-line and other adventures.

    My cup runneth over. Father’s Day, First day of summer, special sunrise, selling a car on-line and other adventures.

    The first 24 hours was a gong show. I had a half dozen scammers in minutes. And the stories they had to tell. All absurd.

  • Stittsville’s Land Boom

    Stittsville’s Land Boom

    I’ve always loved building. Houses, towers, stadiums, overpasses, bridges. Here’s an essay on deconstruction, to start anew.

  • Warming up a weary crowd at the Capitol!!

    Warming up a weary crowd at the Capitol!!

    If I’d been asked by The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies to speak to the DC crowd a bit before the main attraction. This is what I’d say…….. Good morning neighbours and friends of Canada. Thanks for the chance to speak here at the Capitol before your 46th President, Joe Biden comes out to […]

  • Radio!!!! Down but not out!!!

    Radio!!!! Down but not out!!!

    This time of year has always been special for me. When I woke up on Thursday morning my immediate thoughts were of “Ratings Day”. I’d almost forgotten!!!! This week is when the Fall radio Diary results are normally released across Canada. I say normally but not this year. I will explain later. Fall ratings can […]
