Thanks to the organizers of today's RPM get together.

Trouble is - there are so many great folks, I didn't get to talk to everyone I wanted to.

We are blessed here. I looked at the talent in that room and it is something else.

There is only one Cam McCubbin, or Bill Hughes, or Terry David Mulligan, or Red, or Jolly, or Mike Cleaver.....I could go on for a week.

What a day. Thanks too, to Drex for coming out and meeting the Family.

It's nice to add some new great people to the mix

Is there a 50K AM flame thrower that needs a ratings boost? Perhaps a "border blaster" that wants to impact the Metro area with it's message... What about an FM station that needs to rock with success... don't go to BCiT for young inexperienced staff... look to this highly qualified roster of talent! If all this talent was working in one place that station would have ratings that would be sky high.... and notice there isn't a bean counter in the bunch.

Yes... what these folks could do for a station in one ratings period would be amazing!

I echo Thomas Jefferson's (er ... Tom Jeffries' :)) thoughts above. A terrific lunch with many true pros. Drex, Producer Eric Chapman, and sports guy Bob Addison even devoted a few minutes on CKNW around 7:45 this evening to discussing today's lunch!

Yes, was such a wonderful day. As Donovan pointed out we chatted about it on the radio tonight.

Thanks to Ted & Gord for the invite, and thanks to Tom Jefferies for introducing me to all of you guys.

Can't wait for the next one, I'll bring Bob Addison along.

Donovan, apologies for not saying hi, but it was NUTS. So many people, so little time.

I admire you a ton, and I am so happy that you are part of the RPM crowd.

Good on 'ya my friend.

Thank you for the kind words, Tom! We will meet at the next get-together. With the cacophony of noise coming from all angles in that room, I must say I felt a tad like Helen Keller. ;) I was also searching for Pam Stevens, who I hung with for the majority of the July RW event, but couldn't find her either. Logistically impossible, perhaps, but would it work if next time everyone went around the room and introduced themselves to the group? Special thanks to Doc Harris for assisting me in getting out of the Whitespot and finding a cab in order to head back to the office!

Great to see you again Donovan. Pam was at the table nearest the door ... just a few seats away from Thomas Jefferson, Red Robertson's old friend!

We used to do the introductions, but it became very time consuming, so it hasn't been done for a few years.

Next Radio West GTG will likely be Sunday November 9th at the Marine Pub. We like to kinda sneak it in between Time Change and Grey Cup.

Wow, great pictures and really nice to see some faces at the RPM lunch I haven't seen in a long time.
Sorry I missed this most recent lunch. Would have liked to have said a long overdue hello in-person to Donovan, Tom Mark, Joanne Sutton and Elmer! I hope they are at the next RPM lunch!
