Hello from Downtown Calgary,

I was in Germany 77 working with Gordo in the Canex Warehouse for a couple of years. For those that remember Jamie Martyn and I moved over to the FireHall in 79. Stayed there until 86 after touring around Europe thanks to being a driver for Community Services.

Moved to Comox in 86, then to Kingston Ont, 91, Cool Pool, 92-97 and finally in Calgary. I am working at WestJet and am able to hopscotch across the country and have ran into a few of us from Baden.

Married Beth in 86 and our daughter is now 21.....what happened there.

Hi to all that and looking forward to hearing from you.

In Baden 80 to 85. at one point vice president Baden Playmakers. Worked Friday Night Old and Gold show and Sunday Sounds on CFNS. Got the job from the Colonel, after an audition that included "a minute on a coke bottle". Never thought of so many uses before, did you Doug? Spent a lot of my free time riding my Goldwing through the hills. Many quick escapes out the back gate just as the siren went off on Day 1's.

Oh yeah, also worked in Snags, and 439 Tac Fighters

After Baden...worked in Film and Television, (still do)...and work for the city of Edmonton.

Post Friday Night Old and Gold
I used to love Friday Night Old and Gold. On Fridays when hubby was out in the field, I used to stop at the radio station on my way home from work and request a bunch of 60s songs. A few of us women would get together with a bottle or two of wine, work on a jigsaw puzzle or play cards, and listen to the old music. Good job!

Hey, thanks Sue....often wondered who my listener was. :lol: Had a great time with that show, right up til my repat date.

As an aside to anyone...still trying to find recordings of Rock and Roll Circus. They had two LP's out..."At Last", and "Before and After Midnight".
If anyone has them, I'd gladly forward a blank disc for you to transcribe onto...
