The DOC HOLIDAY at CFTR wouldn't really be GIL HARRIS who was at CHAM and later combined the two personalities and became DOC HARRIS would it?
Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who couldn't hear the music.

Doc Harris is one of those announcers who put a smile on your face everytime you listened to him. His off-beat sense of humour and relaxed delivery has charmed listeners since the early '70s.

Harris started his career in 1970 at CKOM in Saskatoon. He was Gil Harris then, and used that moniker at his next two stops - both in Ontario - at CKSO Sudbury and CHAM in Hamilton. In 1971, he moved to Toronto's CFTR and - as Doc Holliday - was one of the first Top 40 announcers at that station which had just flipped from easy listening.

In 1973, Holliday moved to Vancouver - changed his on-air name to Doc Harris - and began a long and successful career at stations like CKLG, CFMI-FM, CKKS, CKST, CKNW, CFUN and CISL.

Harris was also one of the first radio personalities to get his own web site. His site at has been on the web since 1994.

Harris spent 11 years (1973-84) at highly rated CKLG, and we hear him from 1976 here.
