....Rob Christie, Seanna Collins, Doug Rutherford and I are working on a 'tribute event' shortly in Edmonton...I don't think a 'bursary for young talent' would be out of the question at NAIT ....give us a few days and we'll post details here....

A friend said that he saw a piece on Global Lethbridge about Gord Robson while he was there shortly after Gord's death. It makes sense given Gord's years on Morning Drive in Lethbridge a few years back. But still nice to hear about.

Small but nice tribute to Gord on reelradio.com debuted this morning, as part (green sidebar) of the description of a Doors Special that Corus syndicated nation-wide a year ago today.
