What a Sunrise! What a great Highlands day!

Yup, it was a beautiful light show at daybreak today … and we wish we could hang on to that fabulous start to the day. It could get a bit iffy.

Inside things will be bright as Lorraine and I charge into another day on 100.9 Canoe FM. Today our special guest after the 8am news is David Thomas, director of education for the Upper Canada District School Board. We talk about a peer mentoring program called “Link Crew”. It’s a program that faces down bullying in a most effective manner…and makes a real difference in student results in grade 9. Join us for this interesting discussion.

We’re live on 100.9 Canoe FM and on the web at

Thank you to Midland Rotary Club for such a warm welcome … it was a great visit to a beautiful town. I got a picture for posterity!!

Hump Day Dawn

It’s a hump day Wednesday morning on Canoe FM and today, with Lorraine as co-host, Reeve of Minden Hills, Barb Reid, will be our guest after the 8am news.
Hope you can join us, we have lots to cover … we just seemed to run out of time yesterday and couldn’t get through everything we had to share with you.
Mike at CKMP Midland_0001
Right after the show today I hit the road to Midland, ON, to give a little talk to the noon gathering of their Rotary Club. Looking forward to it. I started my working career there 50 years ago when, as a fresh faced youngster, I started on the air at CKMP in Midland. I started on the morning show, because no one else wanted to get up that early. I’ve been getting up early ever since.

We’re live at 100.9 or from 7 to 9 am. Remember, without you, it just ain’t radio.
