Good to hear this RF - not sure if you were still at NW when I trained John in his first radio job as an operator. (He hadn't taken the Buchanan moniker at that time)

I was there. And then he was off to do evenings at CHWK for a few months until they got insistant about staff living in the community. After Chilliwack he came back to McBride Plaza and did weekend all nights on CFMI after Bert Gordon moved on to NW.

Any idea what Big John is up to now?

I know he was involved in wine distribution for a while, and the last I heard a few years ago, I think from Al Falk (Murdoch) is that he was selling mattresses at Sleep Country or something like that? If someone knows for sure, reply here or call me at the station next week.
