Been wondering the same for a number of years.

Especially after learning of this very sad occurrence many years ago - viewtopic.php?f=10&t=7101&p=12791684&hilit=russ+campbell#p12791684

Thanks for that rather shocking news WOW. I know he had a job at CKST in St Albert in the late 80's but after that...lost to time.

Another question from a bit later in the Edmonton radio time frame ... whatever became of Bill Jackson - half of CJCA's very popular Bill & Bill Show?

Rumours have suggested that he too enjoyed a stint at the Alberta Hospital (with no prejudice against those who have suffered from a very serious mental disease) and later ended up working at a financial institution in Sherwood Park.

Inquiring minds want to know ...

Thanks albertaboy4life.

Good to see that Bill landed on his feet, proving again that there is life after radio.

There’s always been something about this business that either attracts those that is...or turns those that weren’t before INTO those that is.
Legendary WLS dj Barney Pip spent a period at the Illinois State Hospital.
The story he loved to tell was about how he’d introduce himself to the staff and his fellow patients as Barney Pip and nobody would believe him.
