Dave5I got my start in broadcasting when I was in high school at the age of 17.One day our electronics teacher told us that the local cable company was looking for a couple of camera operators.I had visions of getting my foot in the door as a cameraman and then convincing them I should try to do a close circuit radio show.Which they let me do.On Saturday nights we played music and took requests.At the same time I became a reporter for a radio station in Stratford .Covering town council meetings and sports events.Eventully I became an on air host on a partime basis at that same station.From there I went to their sister station at the time in Parry Sound.Since it was a small station, I was an on air host, copy writer and Sports Director.After two years there I went back to Stratford moving from evenings to eventually Program Director.

In 1984 I moved to Tillsonburg and in 1986 I became the Program Manager of Easy101/Country 107 3. Besides broadcasting, I sit on the board of directors with Community Living Ontario, Community Living Tillsonburg, and Norwich Merchants Jr. C Hockey Club.

Elvis Presley died of heart failure in Memphis, TN, in 1977. He was only 42. 
Elvis' amazing climb from the humblest of beginnings to rock & roll immortality reached its first major plateau on January 27, 1956, with the release of "Heartbreak Hotel," his debut single on the RCA label. The first of 17 number 1 hits, "Heartbreak" held down the top spot for eight weeks, firmly establishing the man from Memphis, TN, as a national phenomenon. His hip-swiveling performances on ta series of '50s TV variety shows -- including Ed Sullivan's -- didn't hurt either, generating both hysteria and intense media coverage, and captivating a vast audience of rebellious, record-buying teens. By the time Elvis had sung his last note 21 years later, he held records for the most Top 40 hits (107), the most Top 10 hits (38), the most consecutive number 1 hits (10) and the most weeks at number 1 (80). This Sunday on the Sunday Morning Memories at 9:30 we remember Elvis Presley.
