Two more to come, then holidays for two weeks

Postby Mike Cleaver » Wed Jun 16, 2010 7:45 pm

There are two more interviews this week, Doc Harris and Cameron Bell.
I'll have Jack and Radiofan post them, likely Friday night or Saturday morning.
Then I'm off on holidays for two weeks.
More interviews, a whole whack of them, are scheduled for the last three weeks of July and the months to follow.
I'm hoping to do four a week.

Mike:

Just want to say that your interviews of former B.C. radio personalities are among the most interesting, thorough and informative that anyone has heard of in recent years... Keep up the good work !

As far as pioneering or "noteworthy" personalities based in B.C's interior, the following come to mind:

Kelowna - Walter Gray, connected with local radio for well over 40 years. Nick Frost, founder of SIlk-FM.

Vernon - Frank Martina - former KISS-FM/CJIB morning man for over 30 years. Glen Morrison, longtime CJIB/KISS-FM newsman and possibly, the first known disabled broadcast journalist to work in BC radio.

Penticton - the Robinson family, founders of Giant FM.

Quesnel - Ron Nielson, Larry Rode, of Cariboo Radio.

What? You didn't suggest Chris Cleaver? :)

That's a pretty good list. John Michaels has been around Kelowna for years, too.

Glen had a career at CHWK and then CFVR before going to Vernon. I wonder if he can name who he replaced when he was hired at CJIB. I can.
