Re: Nevin Grant Congratulations!

There wouldn't have been a CKOC as we once knew it without Nevin Grant.

According to an article in Broadcast Dialogue, there may not have been a lot of other well known radio names without him, either:

"Over the years, Grant helped launch the careers of many broadcasters including Roger Ashby, Ronald J. Morey, Gord James, Dave Charles, Brent Sleightholm, Bob Steele, Mike Jaycock, Peter Jaycock, Franklyn Cooper, “Rock ‘N'” Ray Michaels and Bob Bratina, who would go on to become mayor of Hamilton." 

1,150 congratulations!

Re: Nevin Grant Congratulations!

A nicer guy I've never met. Years ago, I would call him asking for information on CKOC's history, and he very patiently answered my questions. I also got a tour of his personal CKOC museum, an amazing accumulation of artifacts from over the years. All the best Nevin. You deserve it!
