As much for my own benefit as everyone else who may not know a lot about Norm. From vancouverbroadcasters.com:
Norm Mazuren - Summer replacement announcer CHWK Chilliwack 1965; BCIT Broadcast Production graduate, first class of 1966; evenings CFVR Abbotsford 1966-67; evenings then mid afternoons CHWK 1967-72; afternoon drive/mid mornings CJJC Langley 1972-77 (music director 1973-77); music director, assistant program director, mid mornings CHWK 1977-95; realtor, Royal LePage Wheeler Cheam Realty, Chilliwack 1996-2011; retired.

Earliest reference to Norm in Chilliwack media is his sudden (but expected) appearance at Chilliwack General Hospital in 1945. Next comes his successful graduation from Grade 1 at Chilliwack's Central Elementary in June 1952. In 1956, Norm won a prize from Elmer the Safety Elephant. By 1963, Norm was involved in his school's Audio/Video Club. The next year, he was part of the same Club when they did a "pantomime" of the Beatles in the high school carnival parade. There is also mention of Norm being a Chilliwack resident at the time of his 1966 graduation from BCIT's "Broadcast Communications" program.

First mention of Norm working in Radio is on October 18th, 1967, after he and Bruce Kirkpatrick, also of CHWK, did a sock hop in Sardis.

I am sure that is way more of a bio than Norm expected - looking good for 70. :occasion4:

I remember Norm well from CJJC Langley as my Aunt and Uncle lived up the Fraser Hwy in Aldergrove and listened to Norm in the seventies. CJJC 800 was a good training station back in the day and had good talent.I still have air-checks not many but still memories.
