RPM Radio Luncheon - Pics and Comments

Postby hagopian » Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:06 pm

Today - Ron Toigo's White Spot, on Georgia was home to a lunch of all the "radio and TV" types - all welcomed.

It was a smash - and seeing John Ashbridge (back at Canucks on 24th, he tells me - YES) - Tony Parsons, McKeach, Casey White, John Tanner, Mulli, Jim (the best) Fraser, Dave Mclaughlin, Big Daddy, Red, Mike Cleaver, Rich Elwood, Michel Godin....Phil Mackesy - Wilf Ray - Gene Kern, Jody Vance, Sam Ferriss, Cubby, well - the sucker was a blast. *the place was packed!

Thanks to Red and Carole Robinson and Gord Lansdell, Owen Coppin, Mike Cleaver and the other people that helped put it together.

We have an Industry that allowed me to work with some of these amazing people and it was a treasured day.

THANKS~~~~to Mr. Toigo - all guests even got White Spot cards as a gift - pretty classy.

Pictures? - Jack was campaigning

Love the burger fest of Ted's and the White Spotters by Carole and Red.

Wish I lived a little closer - maybe that can happen in the next three years.

Gotta agree, and I enjoyed it immensely! Also great to see Barrie Clark and Jim McDonald together again... Gene Kern out of hospital at last (and still "on the air") and of course Jim Robson, our latest order of BC winner. Add my thanks to all the organizers... it was great. Looking forward to the seeing the complete list as promised Mr. Moderator. ;-)

Wow, Diane Newman looks great!
John Tanner, in the background of the picture, almost vanishes when he stands sideways; even for Jolly John, he's gotten pretty thin.
As for the rest of the guys, I'm seeing more gray shades than an Ansel Adams picture of the Moon, but hey, at our age, aint it a bonus to have any kind of hair?
