RIP CKNW Engineer John Mair

Radio West is reporting the death of former longtime CKNW/CFMI-FM engineer John Mair within the past week.

John worked at ‘NW from 1970 until the early 2000s.  In the early 1970s he was away on the Prairies working at sister station CJOB in Winnipeg, helping to rebuild a burned out transmitter site.

We’re told that in recent years Mair suffered from diabetes, which may have contributed to his demise. He lost a leg to the disease in more recent times.

Those who knew him called him a champion when dealing with any non-digital issues and equipment.   And a happy co-worker at all times.
