This week we celebrate the life of Gord Robson with three new airchecks from three eras of his almost 40 year broadcasting career.

First up, we take you back to March of 1976 when Gord was handling Mid Days at Vancouver's CKLG. The music is scoped, commercials are unscoped.

In the late 1980's, Gord returned to Edmonton's 630 CHED where he was in Afternoon Drive.

Gord's last stop in the world of radio was at CHQT (COOL 880). For the past year, Gord was on air in PM Drive and was the station's Music Director. His last show on COOL 880 was Thursday March 13th, the day before it was announced that the station would become an all news operation in May.

Thanks for the memories Gord!

I still miss Gord. What a freak'n shame. He was a mentor to me. Like Robin Williams...here's another one that just doesn't make sense. I wish I could have been there for him. :salute:

One of my favourite all time people, and I miss him, too. He was a wonderful fellow. Unforgettable.
