The song, ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’ -Dean Martin (1959)
Chuck Benson – Started his broadcast career in 1960 as a writer at CKYL, Peace River, AB, where in 1965 he won the Gold Leaf Award (now called the Juno) for Top Disc Jockey for Canada. From there, a brief stint at CFRN, Edmonton, AB as Promotions Manager for AM/FM Radio. Then in ’62 helped open CKNL Fort St. John, BC. In ’68 Chuck and two others (Ernie Mushtuk and Ernie Mykyte) started up Yellowhead Broadcasting Ltd out of Edson, AB, eventually ending up with satellites in Grande Cache, Jasper, Whitecourt and Hinton, AB. He sold his interests and moved to Vancouver, ending up with CFVR, Abbotsford as General Sales Manager, then Manager of CHPQ, Parksville, and eventually as a Sales Consultant with CIGV-FM in Penticton. Chuck is retired from broadcasting and living with his wife in Parksville.
… and “It’s a Marshmallow World”. Must plays in our Christmas music selections. And who can pull it off better than old Dino. Wearing a tux, highball in one hand, cigarette in the other and crooning on a mic. Can’t go wrong with anyone from the Rat Pack.
Great song should be played every hour.
Bravo Chuck but why not go for three controversial Christmas songs in a row by Dean. I suggest: “let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”. He obviously has more on his mind than popcorn!
