Very nice comments on Pete McGarvey. He's an Orillia boy as am I and he kept close tabs on me throughout my radio career. When I retired from RCS, Ingrid and Howard Christensen urged me to pay a visit to Pete at his home in Orillia, Bob Bowland was in town that day we so both headed towards Pete's house. As we were getting out of the car I said to Bob this won't take long. Bob's comment was "wanna bet?" Two hours later we left along with autographed copies of his Stephen Leacock books. Pete never let his Toronto radio days get to his head. He was always Pete. A gentle man.

Dave Chesney is the fellow who wrote this. His father owned the Langley station and then he came to CKLG-FM (now CFOX) and helped with the building the foundation for CFOX.  He's a good guy and I couldn't agree with more.

I would be negligent not to make a comment about  André (even if it forced me to set up an account on the IG Network). During my early days at RCS and pushing Selector across Canada, Montreal was foreign soil, Until I met André. He embodied everything I had heard about Montrealers and he kept his word. As the Bell press release states "with unparalleled vision, passion, and integrity". He had it all. Rest in peace my friend. Your calls to Selector support  are on the wall of fame. You will be missed,
