I remember listening to Regina radio (in Moose Jaw) during the day probably in the morning. I want to know the name of the station and the host. Also there was a regular caller a Mrs. Hosie. She called almost every time! They loved her and had a memorial when she died. It was not CBK or CJME. CKCK?

One forum has this to say:
Good old CKCK and Lorne Harrison's open line type show. There was an older woman named Mrs. Hosie who would phone in nearly every day as she had an opinion on almost everything. Can't recall if he ever cut her off.

Mrs. Hosie is mentioned in Lorne Harasen's new book, "The Harasen Line: A Broadcaster's Memoir" (pg. 203)

Virtually every open line show has its three or four regular callers. I was no exception. ... Mrs. Inez Hosie was somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun. She once said that she was opposed to marriage between blacks and whites because that results in a "mottled" race."


For background, Harasen hosted The Harasen Line on CKCK for about ten years from the mid-60s to the mid-70s. He left for a communications job at the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, then a few years later, joined CKRM as host of Newsline, eventually adding news director responsibilities before retiring in the mid 1990s.
