A LITTLE BREATH OF SCOTLAND PRESS RELEASE

“A LITTLE BREATH OF SCOTLAND”

We are sorry to advise you that after fifty years on the radio, Toronto’s longest running radio show with the same host, “ A Little Breath of Scotland ” will be going off the air.

Radio host, Denis Snowdon met with AM740 station manager Dan Hamilton and music director Neil Hedley after Sunday’s show, and was told that the show would be reduced to one hour per week from its traditional two hour time slot and that only half the shows would be broadcast live. He was told that the other half of his shows would be broadcast as “the best of” shows, taken from previously archived shows, which would contain no local news or information. Mr. Snowdon was not consulted about the proposed changes.

Mr. Snowdon feels that the position of Am740 is completely unacceptable, and undermines the integrity of a show that has served a loyal listening audience since 1965. He accordingly has told the station that the August 9th show was his last on AM740.

They say that all good things must come to an end and Mr. Snowdon would like to thank all of his listeners and advertisers for their loyalty and support over the past 50 years.

If you feel you would like to let the station know your feelings on their decision, they may be contacted as follows:

Mr. Moses Znaimer
AM740 Radio
70 Jefferson Ave.,
Toronto, Ontario
M6K 1Y4
Phone : 416-367-5353

Please feel free to pass on this release to any interested parties.
