    Sorry to hear of his loss. He was a trailblazer in the world of broadcasting. He always said what was on his mind. I still remember he and Joey sipping beer and talking politics non NTV.

    It was a pleasure working at both CJON and CKGM both created by the most innovative and inspiring broadcaster in Canada. He will be missed.
