KG 40th reunion

Postby rdstephen » Sun May 26, 2013 8:43 am

We are trying to find some broadcasters who worked with us at CKGY 40 years ago when we signed on the air.

KG Country is celebrating its 40th anniversary this summer, and we have decided to hold a party for the original and dedicated staff that made CKGY such a success!

But we need your help in locating those people who do not have an email address or phone number.
Please add any information you have to fill in the blanks and email back to me.

THE PARTY WILL BE AT THE RED DEER GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB 4500 FOUNTAIN DRIVE FROM 2 TO 7 PM SUNDAY JULY 28TH 2013. BRING YOUR SPOUSE OR A FRIEND AND ENJOY
THE COMPANY OF YOUR OLD RADIO FRIENDS.

If you have other names to add to the list please do so--and return to me.

If you have old pictures, particularly the studio shots we did of all the staff over the past 40 years, please email to me and we'll add them to the decorations.


Thanks
Rod Stephen (rdstephen@shaw.ca)

Pretty sure that's the same Don Taylor that is at TEAM 1040 Vancouver - http://www.teamradio.ca/on-air/afternoons/

And that Dave Maller is in Kelowna - http://www.damproductionsmedia.com/

Last heard Mike LeBlanc on CKVN FM in Lethbridge but don't see him on the staff list any longer, same with Dick Bell (formerly?) of CFCW.

Lane Babcook as in Layne Mitchell? http://www.sonic1029.com/on-air/hosts-s ... -mitchell/

Most recently with TSN, Ken Chillibeck and his wife Ann now own and run the Vagabond Inn near Golden, B.C. http://www.vagabondlodge.ca

Irv Thomas was last sighted in Edmonton a year ago.

Dick Bell is not necessarily gone from CFCW. Their web site simply stopped listing the complete staff. Dick was (is?) in charge of Production.

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Couple of other additions to the list:

Vic Dubois, who I believe is still at CJWW Saskatoon
Mary Jo Gibbons (nee Molzan) who is retired in Victoria

Scott Armstrong
Lain Babcook
Charlie Brzak
Herb Corbett
Harv Davidson
George Guy
Dale Nelson
Wayne Russell
Todd Schlender (McCoy)

Thanks for you help, we have now located a total 51 former staff members at CKGY Red Deer.

Would the Lane Babcook be any relation to Dale Babcook who toiled at CJJC, Langley, B.C. in 1976?
