RPM - April 30th - at The White Spot

Postby hagopian » Tue Apr 30, 2013 2:20 pm

Thanks to Carole and Red Robinson, Gord Lansdell, and Mr. Toigo - for a GREAT RPM lunch today.

I was so happy to see so many of the wonderful Vancouver Radio people, that made my life here so amazing.

I don't miss the "business' - but I sure miss the people. Thanks as well to Ted Wendlund and all his good work - and hopefully he will have some pictures of the crew that showed today - 90 people. Legends. Jim Robson, Ron Robinson, Dr. Sport, Cam McCubbin, Jolly John Tanner, John Oliver, Casey White, Jim Morrison, TDM, George Orr, Jim Conrad, Shell Busey, Shirley Stocker...I could go on for weeks.

These are GREAT people. I was lucky to have worked with many of them. I was BLESSED. Thank you to all of these people, who gave me a LIFE, but also instilled a love of Radio in me that has not dimmed, with the passing years.

Great pics RadioFan.... Thanks for sharing! And thanks to Red and Gord and all involved in organizing these great events. So many memorable people... More than one or two there today I've known for almost HALF a CENTURY! Not to name names, but you know who you are Clark Grey, Jim Morrison, Terry Mulligan, Pam Burge and others. :-) Then to see Maureen Kirkbride for the first time in a quarter century... was icing on the cake. As usual, it's humbling to look around that room and to see so much great talent, many I've had the privilege of working with, others I wish I had. It was great to share the table today with Greg Douglas, Jim Robson, Norm Grohman, Jim McDonald, Casey White, Cameron Bell and Dave McLaughlan. (worked with six out of those seven) The trouble with having such a huge turnout is you never seem to get around to talking with everyone you'd like to. Ah well, maybe next time. Till then... Cheers :occasion5:

Oh... and seeing Ron Robinson there again (who should be on my half century list) was great. And it's always great to get a hug from Julie Brown and Tom Crone (Jeffries). Well, from Julie anyway.

Greetings Everyone,
Really enjoyed seeing all these photos, thanks RadioFan for posting them. This really proves to me that the Vancouver area has had one really fantastic group of creative radio people over the years, probably one of the best in Canada! I am really impressed by the really creative on-air people over the years on Vancouver radio. Gosh I just wish the big corporate owners would realize that and bring more of that back to Current Vancouver area radio which seems to be currently lacking!!!! Seemed like a really great RPM Luncheon!

Take care everyone, safety first, Eldon
Bye . . Mr. CFAY "Frequently On The Frequency"

I got this note from Ted Farr today and he asked me to pass it along to RPM and RadioWest people ...

Ted

Greg Douglas just sent me a note about the last lunch saying that many old friends were asking about me. Unfortunately, we were tied up here in Kelowna and unable to attend. On the 27th, I was the keynote speaker at the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Ball at Sparkling Hill Resort near Vernon. Friends on Facebook and LinkedIn may already have seen the video of my speech. Others may not. Here is a link.

I’ll try to make the next one.

Best

Ted

Lots of pictures - thanks Ted

Don't know how they got everyone in the room

Mark Raines - wow that's a first appearance I think at RPM

I think the radiowest Spring Burger Fest crowd or the Summer NW Bash ~ more my speed ~ a bit more intimate and laid back. :rockon:
