Congratulations to Mr Faux. Ive been listening to him for most of his career. I really enjoyed his late night talk on NW back in the late 80s? Still enjoy his weekend morning shows on NW. He gets great guests and asks them good questions.
Would love to hear stories of his time spent as Doc Harris’s room mate
What a career. I first discovered Stirling on CKLG in the seventies from Saskatoon. Little did he know his show would skip all the way to the prairies. I’ve followed all his radio stops over the years. Congrats to one of the best!
Congrats, Stirling, Still the best way to wake up in the weekend.
Way to go Stirling!
Enjoy your enthusiasm and respect you pay your guests…you, Campbell & Allen are my only stops @ ‘NW these days…
