Miles Ramsey Passes.

A very sad day - and the loss of a brilliant talent, Miles Ramsey. Remember "Mr. Chevron" - (his work with the late Fred Latremouille were mini masterpieces).

RIP. Condolences to his Family and his many friends.

Please take a moment for this 1988 era youtube feature on Mr. Miles Ramsey.
Sad to lose such an iconic talent.

He was uncle like. He was a pal. He was a mentor. Did we do twelve hundred radio commercials together? One thousand two hundred radio spots! It sounds impossible. I'll settle for 1000! He was another Mr. Extemporize. Freddie Latrimouille and Miles Ramsay. What a duo. It was my more-than-lucky day when Fred decided to, "Not do any more radio spots after 12:00 noon!". That began my real tenure as Mr. Ramsay's commercial sidekick. Two spots a month turned into sometimes twenty - working with the man possessed with a coolness and in-control attitude that I could slip-stream into. His ear prevailed. In an era when some of the best English language radio in the world was being produced in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada - Miles Ramsay was at the forefront.

Miles and I didn't do much in front of the camera together.
Here's a TV spot we did on the Island.
