WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!

Hi everyone, Thanks to everyone  who came down to visit me and all of the other artists at the last West Fine Art Show of the year. It was a great show with brisk sales and that means we did a good job of fundraising for our partner, Langley Hospice Society.

We were wonderfully hosted by Glass House Estate Winery, a place your should visit.  Just take the lovely drive through picturesque south Langley to Glass House Estate Winery at 23449 0 Avenue.

Red Robinson: The Last Broadcast is the sequel to the best-selling Red Robinson: The Last Deejay. This new book, also written by Robin Brunet, details the legendary Canadian deejay’s last radio broadcast in the summer of 2017, and provides an in-depth look at the careers of his equally colourful friends and colleagues in the broadcasting industry. Over a career that spanned six decades, Red’s colleagues include Doc Harris, Stirling Faux, Fanny Kiefer, Gloria Macarenko, Wayne Cox, and many others. Robinson was the first DJ to play rock ‘n roll regularly in Canada. He also emceed live concerts by Elvis Presley and the Beatles. With humour and candour, Red Robinson: The Last Broadcast explores why the old days of working in radio were far more fun, daring, and innovative than in today’s environment of media concentration. This blast from the past will entertain readers both old and young and give an emerging generation of broadcasters a sense of why theirs is a profession worth preserving through stubborn persistence, endless curiosity, a dash of hubris, and a strong dose of old-fashioned chutzpah.
