Don't forget Pat Meyers. He and Diane Ramsden were there at the same time. Pat has his own company in Coquitlam called dpi, doing commercials and voice-overs, etc. Diane went to C-FAX in Victoria where she worked for ten years. She's now working at The Butchart Gardens.
Nice to hear they are doing well!!!

Hi people...yes that DJ from the past is still alive and kicking. Gene McCormick of the Tops n Pops show on CHUB who later got
married to a fan, Opened up a bike shop for many years, CHUB was a fun place to work. They gave me the all night shift. There
is not much advertising income small stations take in so they cannot pay much. The day I announced I was quitting a teenager
thought I was crazy ..I work for 50 cents a hour he said ...I said thats why Im quitting. Should note one of my listeners later
in life got his own FM station .. Bob Morris 91.7fm. Its a different time now with the internet. Popular DJ's of the past like
mine were household names and Red Robinson is still spinning CD's on Sundays. Gene
And darn! I saw your shop downtown was closed down and empty. Did you move?
i remember the old days of chub radio and listening to the tops in pops show later i worked for gene at the pedal pusher for about 25 years not a bad place to work i remember seeing chub employees on the street of nanaimo on the list of persons on air dave marnoch i went too school at john barsby i remember he said one day this is dave morning until 6 o'clock in the marnoch. chub was very good in community programs and kept up with what was going around our town open mike during noon hour was very good to listen to i believe the ken gogo mentioned has passed away also greg bolter used to fill in for larry thomas sometimes he also showed up on shaw tv doing intervews he also wrote for the nanaimo times and drove taxi cabs he has also has passed away greg peacock used to anounce at the race track at cassidy
I found this video from 1985 featuring Leith: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18wXnSarCJY
Leith was well spoken, sometimes controversial and sometimes ticked off, but I remember he could also have a mischievous twinkle in his eye.
On the sunny side of the Strait:cool:
