  1. Supercountry!!?? What about “Shortwave CKFX”? And people like Gene Kern, Barry Clark, Buddy Clyde and Nick Frost? There were many others, of course. All missed.

  2. Nick Frost? Terry, I’m sure you mean Nick Sands. Barry Clark and Buddy Clyde are still around. Sadly Nick and Gene have passed, although Gene was a regular participant in the RPM affairs while he was here.

    BTW, Red explains the RPM as ‘Radio Performers Membership.’ Although I’m sure he means it as a semi-salute to Canada’s original music publication RPM, Walt Grealis’ publication that was filled with news of and for the radio industry.
