Anyone else getting really tired of the Virgin Radio ad they paid to have in almost every TV commercial period. Kind of used to like it now I despise it. Good work virgin.

Thanks to a tip from a friend at Puget Sound Radio I see Salt Spring Island may be on the verge of getting approval for its own community radio station courtesy of our overlords at the CRTC, which has determined the island can sustain a locally run radio outlet at this time. Apparently the commission has in fact received such an application from a local entity called the Gulf Islands Community Radio Society (GICRS):

There was one running when I moved here. A fellow named Gary Brooks ran it, heck of a nice guy. Sold it and split to Panama or something. New guy wasn’t following the rules and got shut down, from what I hear.

Long time Victorians - of a certain age naturally - who listened to Vancouver radio jocks in the 60's and 70's will probably remember Roy "the Real" Hennessey who passed away yesterday at age 80. Along with Hennessy when I was in my teens in the early 70's I listened like many south island teens to CFUN and CKLG, where Hennessy was a really Big Deal, along with Doc Harris (also CKLG) and my good pal Tom Jeffries (ex-CFUN, ex- CKNW among many other stations).


Tom is in process of becoming a published author detailing the heyday of AM radio in SW BC which should be out in the fall. Looking forward to that one. As he himself has said radio in particular has changed beyond all recognition since the advent of the WWW and streaming and online services, and very likely has seen its best days in the rear view mirror, so his account should have some great material in it for those of us in the over-55 crowd especially.

I bought a house from Rick Honey, who was a longtime CKNW personality.

Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.

/\ RH died very young in 2001, a big shock in the BC radio community at the time. I think Rick was only 52-3. Dad was at the service along with a boat load of ex-jocks, mostly the Vancouver crew. Good guy...!
