The Interviews Begin

Since horns have not been blown, I shall do so.

I'm pleased to have been told by a third party that Mike Cleaver has interviewed Gordon Rose about his career and the interview will soon find a place on the web.

Gordie, back when I was just a young RCA one-slot machine, read the 8 a.m. major newscast at CHWK and then went out on sales calls. One of the other evening jocks remarked to me on more than one occasion that "he's too good to be working in Chilliwack" and, at the time, I had no idea of his extensive career in Vancouver for years before this.

Gordie is a great example, both on and off the air. I will never forget his kindness to me. I'm looking forward to hearing his reminiscences.

Thanks to Mssrs. Cleaver and Bennest (and anyone I may have forgotten) for their endeavours on this.

Moved to a new section - Mike Cleaver Interviews



Here is the first recorded interview with a former broadcaster who worked
in the 40-80's period.

Gordie Rose was a fine broadcaster and made a mark on me when I met him at
CHWK. Gentleman is the best word to describe him.
