Cornwall ON – The Internet has a way of bringing people from all over the world together or popping back.
I received an email yesterday from a former CJSS newsjockey, Rob Wilson, who spent time working in Cornwall in 1974-75!
He sent in this picture of himself today from France (He lives in Australia) and the following note which he asked we pass on to our viewers:
I was on Facebook and spotted your story. I worked as a news reporter and news announcer at CJSS in 1974-75 on the 4pm-11pm shift with Ken Letroy (until 7) and then James Roderick (the rock jock) until 11pm.
Have super memories of Bill Gallant (sports director), Carl Fisher (morning news) and Wayne Waldruff (morning show host) and Terry Mallette (afternoons and late nights).
Have lived in Brisbane, Australia for the past 20 yrs with my Aussie wife. Love the weather, swimming pools and palm trees here (32C and sunny today).
Hello to all my old friends in Cornwall!
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
And that dear viewer is how people can sometimes reconnect via the net! If you have a story of a long distance reunion email us with a photo to email@example.com and we just might publish it like we did Rob’s! In the meanwhile I’ll have to ask resident radio historian Bill Lasalle if he has any pics!
