First, my beloved Al JOYnes:*; [LINK]; https://www.facebook.com/al.joynes

and then, [moments] ago, I’m told that this is ALSO (John) SKOles’ LAST BROADCAST TODAY (AND i FOUND THIS as the ONLY link [same blogger? – thanks, Mike].


I’ve been meaning to update THIS link since the date I wrote it**: now i don’t know what to do…TORONTONIANS! NIARARA-ites!


* letter to Tammy Cole, Sales…

Firing Al Joynes?
Are you out of your minds?
This was the best 12-hours in your week!

I have becoming increasingly dis-illusioned w/ your ‘new’ format, e.g., REPLAYING songs and /? more contests. Is this FM or AM?

I feel like i did when Barrie’s TV station was sold; what happened to their collection?

This firing may be the final straw; hokey as it can be, GIANT FM plays more like the “Q-107 I was listening to before it was officially on the air.”

** where SKOles was omitted only b/c I wasn’t sure how to spell his surname…
Skoles vs. the grating voice of “KK”?? NO CONTEST!

My edition is a Signet Classic, and thus not exactly as shown.

Although a HUGE fan of Mary Ann Evans Cross (the author’s real name back when women had a hard time publishing), THIS is just not my favoUrite novel.

This was thrust at me by that wonderful neighboUr, Verna.  It is an AMAZING, TRUE story of how an Indian five-year-old, lost without knowing his own surname or hometown, is adopted to Australia, and later, using Google Earth, is actually able to find his birth family; you can’t make this stuff up!
Highly recommended!

I hate my hacker so much; I have lost the immediacy of writing about books as I finish them, and it’s really bugging me.

For example, I remember only that I liked this very, very, much.

Still, there is the whole Seagram’s history thing, e.g.,
