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 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…
Saskatchewan’s Super 8 is 100 years old!!!

Stittsville’s Land Boom
I’ve always loved building. Houses, towers, stadiums, overpasses, bridges. Here’s an essay on deconstruction, to start anew.
Good Morning, I’m your live, local, powered by predictive AI morning host

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