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.

Skip Prokop -- the big-hearted drummer, co-founder and visionary behind Canadian rock band Lighthouse -- has died at the age 74. Band manager Brenda Hoffert, wife of Lighthouse co-founder Paul Hoffert, says he died earlier this week in a hospital in St. Thomas. She say had been living with a heart condition and was ill for some time. Born Ronald Harry Prokop, the Hamilton native had his initial taste of international success with Canadian psychedelic rock band the Paupers in the early 1960s. After the group disbanded, Prokop was an in-demand session musician for industry heavyweights including Carlos Santana, Janis Joplin and folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary.

This Sunday on the Sunday Morning Memories program we pay tribute to Skip Prokop and Lighthouse.

The Sunday Morning Memories program is heard each Sunday at 9:30 am.
