+ BIO

Been on the radio for parts of five decades (1978-present) and it still doesn’t seem like work.  It never does when you’re passionate about what you do.  Started in Charlottetown, also did a five year stint in Toronto before moving to Montreal for good in 1985.

 

Favourite Food: Coming from the Maritimes, I’m pretty partial to seafood, whether it’s fresh lobster bisque at a high end restaurant or fried clams from a roadside fish shack.  I also love a good steak and baby back pork ribs – basically all the stuff that will kill you dead if you don’t eat it in moderation and supplement it with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables.

 

Favourite Movie: I’m a longtime military history buff so most of my favourites are in that genre, including Patton, Saving Private Ryan and the German productions of Stalingrad and Untergang – the latter being the one that spawned all the Hitler parodies on YouTube.  I also love and strongly recommend a couple of comedies that flew under the box office radar: Burn After Reading with an absolutely star-studded cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, John Malkovich and J.K. Simmons, and Snatch – a British comedy by Guy Ritchie starring Jason Statham.  Brad Pitt is also in that one playing an Irish gypsy to hilarious effect.

 

Favourite Activities: Spending time with my kids, travel when I can afford it, reading.

 

Favourite Artists:  Classic rock growing up, from the Eagles to Black Sabbath, although more recently I’ve developed a taste for modern country, especially the stuff that crosses genres into blues rock, pop like Blake Shelton, Brooks and Dunn, Florida- Georgia Line, Blackberry Smoke and Cadillac Three.  And of course anything and everything on The Jewel, except Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks 😉
