‘Googie’ was made for politics, and politics was made for him
I see where the General Manager position at K-Rock in New Minas is up for grabs. Will MacKay is leaving the Valley and moving back to Ottawa. His wife, Lea Miller, is going with him, which frees up a part-time gig at Radio 965 in Halifax. If you want a part-time on air job at a Halifax Newcap station, here is your opportunity. You’re welcome.
Last time I mentioned the new Classic Rock station in New Glasgow, to which I wished my best. But I can’t be nearly as charitable toward its sister station, East Coast FM, the former CKEC.
While I am happy they still have a spoken word locally produced news show, and some in-house music programs, I have but one word for its day-to-day playlist: Blech.
If I don’t get fired by the end of the column, then I will have outdone Patrick Brazeau. Wish me luck.
Scotsman Domink Diamond, late of Radio 96.5 Halifax, is no longer the morning guy at 102.1 The Edge in Toronto. His departure was as abrupt as his arrival there in the spring.
If you saw my interview with Ron Roberts you will know that I spend a lot of time thinking and talking and writing about the local radio market.
