I worked with Chris at 66CFR Calgary in 89-91 and what a treat. Got to know him and his lovely bride Linnea. When I got back to the coast in 96 from Ottawa and heard Chris on JR..another treat. Class act and I was so relieved that he was able to go out on his own terms. Many bike trips lay ahead for that dood that I can call my friend and not JUST another broadcast bud. He gets to stay at home. Linnea is still doing consulting and PR work, and she and I have run into each other in our Fraser Valley media travels.
