8:03 am Newsletter

I can hardly believe a year has gone by since we last sent out a newsletter. I’m not sure if it’s because there is no news, or that time just flies, and as the old song says,” Another year passes”!

This October we will be celebrating the 45th birthday of the show. It really is amazing that it all started away back in 1965! I have so many great memories, met interesting people, and had the best, most loyal audience a host could ever wish for.

The show continues to be one of the most listened to shows on AM740, and on Sundays, one of the top ranked shows in all of Ontario in it’s time slot. Remember too, as you have a computer, that you can listen to the show at www.zoomerradio.ca, and it comes through crystal clear, and in stereo, an added bonus. This is especially helpful if you happen to live in or near a hi rise building, which sometimes interferes with our signal.

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Kenneth McKellar earlier this month, but the great thing is, of course, that we will still be able to enjoy all the wonderful recorded music he left for us.

On a personal note, Denise and I now have a fourth grandchild ! Malaiki Anne-Marie Snowdon is the latest addition to the clan. Our son Paul and his wife Penny now have a little girl to join Gabriel, who is now two and a half. Malaiki, by the way is Swahili for “angel”!

We had a wonderful Panama Canal cruise in February with our usual wonderful group of friends. You can see some of the photographs in the photo section of the website www.denissnowdon.com

At the time of writing, we only have space for three couple on our 2011 winter cruise. Again, the itinerary is posted on the web site, so if you are interested in coming with us, don’t delay.

Still on the cruise front, as a result of many requests, we will be doing a Rhine/Danube river cruise next September. Details are being finalized at the moment, and will be available very shortly. These cruises are so popular that they sell out very quickly, so advance booking is paramount.

Once again, may I take this opportunity to thank you for listening to the show, spreading the good word, and making my weekly drive from Oakville to Toronto every Sunday so worthwhile!

Have a wonderful summer, and stay healthy.
