Celebrating 30 Years of the 60's Radio Show on CKCU

This week marks the Sixties 30th anniversary on the air on CKCU-FM. On July 7th we presented a 3 hour special to celebrate the occasion. Here is the audio

Launched officially Tuesday, July 3rd 1984 at 11pm - original host Steve Schijns helped to bring a broader perspective of that decade in music to Ottawa's airwaves. Roch Parisien, Ian McLeish & Chris Lyne were handed the reins in November of '85 and each took their own unique perspective to the program. With Chris' departure in the summer of '86 - Dave Sampson was brought in as fill in host - and became full time host in 1991.
Join Roch, Ian, Dave and original host Steve for a look back at 30 years of the Sixties on CKCU and the decade of music that saw rock & roll come of age and blossom.

CKCU's Joe Reilly pays tribute to Don Lahey

On Monday night Joe Reilly presented a tribute to Don Lahey.

Sadly Don died in a car accident yesterday (June 22), on Highway 15 near Selley's Bay. He was 60 years old. In the 1980s Don helped to shape the jazz community in Ottawa as a programmer here on CKCU-FM producing an influential show called Rabble Without a Cause with his great friend James Hale. It was fun, funny and always spot on providing insight into great jazz music. Don was also the first manager of the Ottawa Jazz Festival, as he managed the event from some point in the early 1980s until 1986. At that point Don encouraged me to apply to be the manager of the Ottawa Jazz Festival and my life changed forever. Don had a profound impact on my life in many, many ways - from helping me to develop an interest and love for many and varied styles of music to helping me to take my life to the next level by guiding me in my years as the managing director of the Ottawa International Jazz Festival. He was always patient and open-minded in guiding me and as a mentor he helped shape who I am today. We could all learn from the great spirit of Don Lahey notably how to treat others with respect, caring and kindness. Don continued to work with the Festival as a volunteer into the 1990s as a member of the programming committe and working on the With An Edge Series. Don will be missed by many people and I hope I pay tribute to his love of people and music on this program tonight. Rest in peace Don. With love... Joe.
