Puget Sound Radio has learned Maz McFly has once again returned to the Calgary Airwaves. His new address is 95.9 FM, Calgary's 'Lite" where he's been doing PM Drive. At this point in time, we're not sure where Bruce Ritchie is?
Another example of someone's life turned upside down. The guy's got 30 years in the business. I think with 3 kids. Now what does he do? Another example of "planning" ahead. You never know when it's gonna come to a screeching halt.
There always has been and always will be someone who sounds better (cheaper) in corporate, bean-counter-driven radio. Bruce is not only a fine sounding professional, but one of the nice guys in a brutal business run by heartless, untalented sycophants.
Truly one of the nicest guys you could ever meet. Helped me, mentored me, at numerous times throughout my career. Amazing family man, beautiful wife and kids. Presided over my husband's (who was also one of his PDs) funeral service with great tact and presence.
I will always call him Don - because that is what his on-air name was in Edmonton - and I will always remember Irene Madoche paging him in the building as "Don-slash-Bruce".
Don/Bruce, and Carol and family, deserve only the best!
