Pioneering Montreal DJ Dave Boxer Is Gone

He was a Top 40 jock on CFCF in La Belle Province who brought great music to a young generation. He was 89.

Dave Boxer, Montreal's 'Cool Daddio on the Raddio,' dies at 89

Sad to hear. Wonderfully competitive Montreal AM  radio in the day with Dave Boxer at CF in the evenings, Mike Stephens (much older) weekends at CJAD and the very hip George Morris (aka Buddy G) at CKGM. Gord Sinclair Jr.'s West Island-based CFOX was a real disrupter with a talented crew when it focused on Top 40. Then CHOM-FM rewrote the book.

Brings back great memories of my days in Cartierville in the early ‘60s. I remember when CKGM launched in 1959 and Dave Boxer joined shortly thereafter. The ‘Daddio on the Raddio’ moved to CFCF and owned evening radio for young Montrealers through the decade.

Bonjour Mr. B. yes great memories that will be hard to replicate with today's VTed "that was this is" mechanics.

P.S. nice to see a picture of my first radio boss,  Keith Randall.

The Globe and Mail often publishes obituaries well after the person has died, in order to go more in depth. They've given Dave Boxer that honouor, and you can read his life story here
