He has hosted several morning shows over the years in Vancouver and is well known for adding his sense of humour to the show to entertain and get people to work with a smile on their faces.



Away from the radio station he loves to run and has participated in The Vancouver Sun Run and managed to complete three Vancouver International Marathons. For most, running just over 26 miles would be a terrific accomplishment but it should be pointed out that he did not run any of the marathons in the same day. As Bob says, "Heh, running 26 miles all at once is way over the top. You could actually get tired or something."


Bob loves hockey. He plays on Sunday nights during hockey season. We won't give away the age of the guys he plays with but they call themselves the "I've Fallen and Can't Get Up League." He's also a buff when it comes to the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and The Soviet Union. If you need to know anything about the series he's the man to talk to.



I have worked in radio since 1977 with over half of those 28 years hosting morning drive programs. I started in Toronto at Q107 and made my way West to Vancouver and currently work at The Unforgettable 600AM. I have hosted morning shows for several formats including rock, classic rock, news/talk radio, all sports, and adult favourites.


I have been an MC at many events including Punchlines Comedy Club in Vancouver and have hosted corporate functions for various associations and financial institutions such as TD/Canada Trust and The B.C. Supply Dealers Association. I have also MC'd charity events including golf tournaments, fundraisers, and seminars for organizations such as The United Way, Canadian Diabetes Association, and various Boards of Trade in the Vancouver area. I have also done voice work on documentaries and information videos for organizations such as Campus Crusade for Christ Canada.


I attended Humber College Radio Broadcasting in Toronto.


Bob is unabashed Christian. His experience at Rock 101 and "edgy" programming (rude and crude) includes the following story. This happened in 1999 after 12 years on the air…. 


"Guys, I'm leaving."


I went down to the program director and said, "I'm sorry, I can't as a Christian go in the direction that you're asking us to go." I don't think it came as a huge shock to him. He said "I can't program the radio station to your faith."


There were a couple of people who came up to me and said, "Why can't you sort of check your values at the door when you come into the radio station, do whatever you have to do on the air, and then you can leave, and you can be the Christian off the air."


My last day was the end of August 1999. I still feel as though I made the right decision.
