00:00:07 Speaker 1 

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. 

00:00:09 Speaker 2 

And those of. 

00:00:10 Speaker 1 

You who are not sure. 

00:00:12 Speaker 2 

Or neither. 

00:00:14 Speaker 1 

My name is Eric Cope. 

00:00:22 Speaker 1 

Applause is not necessary. 

00:00:23 Speaker 1 

You may worship in silence. 

00:00:28 Speaker 1 

But now, in the immortal words of Jack Benny, my name is dork Cope, and I’ll just wait for five seconds while everybody says who gives a damn. 

00:00:37 Speaker 1 

And I’m honored to be your master of ceremonies this evening. 

00:00:39 Speaker 1 

As a matter of fact, the master of ceremonies is a person with a good memory and hopes that other people haven’t. 

00:00:45 Speaker 1 

But I remember him seeing a banquet for a group of *******. 

00:00:48 Speaker 1 

Got a standing ovation and didn’t even know it. 

00:00:51 Speaker 1 

Then one night I thought I was given a standing ovation. 

00:00:53 Speaker 1 

It turned out that all the guy just got. 

00:00:55 Speaker 1 

Up to it just the shorts. 

00:00:58 Speaker 1 

But it’s like Adam said to Eve. 

00:01:00 Speaker 1 

What do you mean the kids don’t? 

00:01:02 Speaker 1 

Look like me. 

00:01:04 Speaker 1 

Or, like Goliath’s mother said to Goliath. 

00:01:08 Speaker 1 

Look, you got to quit going out with that little Jewish kid, because every time you do it, you come. 

00:01:12 Speaker 1 

Home stoned. 

00:01:15 Speaker 1 

But well, they get worse, folks. 

00:01:20 Speaker 1 

But perhaps you should. 

00:01:21 Speaker 1 

Know a little bit about me. 

00:01:23 Speaker 1 

After 40 years in the business, I decided to become a retired broadcaster and now the chairman of the Alberta Motion Picture Development Corporation. 

00:01:32 Speaker 1 

That’s right. 

00:01:32 Speaker 1 

We make movies in the province of Alberta. 

00:01:34 Speaker 1 

If you don’t believe it. 

00:01:35 Speaker 1 

Terry Coles and I can tell you all. 

00:01:38 Speaker 1 

As a matter of fact, being in the. 

00:01:39 Speaker 1 

Movies has made. 

00:01:40 Speaker 1 

Me appreciate pornographic movies, pornographic films. 

00:01:43 Speaker 1 

As a matter of fact, I take one home every night and run it backwards because I love to see. 

00:01:47 Speaker 1 

People get up, get dressed and go home. 



00:01:55 Speaker 1 

I’m also a sex symbol for people who no longer care. 

00:02:00 Speaker 1 

Last month I was voted Man of the Year. 

00:02:02 Speaker 1 

By Preparation H. 

00:02:05 Speaker 1 

My wife says I remind her of Mark Spitz every time she looks at me, she goes. 

00:02:11 Speaker 1 

But I said to her, honey, if I didn’t have any money, would you still love me and she? 

00:02:15 Speaker 1 

Said yeah, but I’d sure miss you. 

00:02:22 Speaker 1 

Then I went to the doctor and he said you’re too fat. 

00:02:26 Speaker 1 

And I said I’d like a second opinion. 

00:02:27 Speaker 1 

And he said, OK, you’re ugly too. 

00:02:31 Speaker 1 

He said as a matter of fact, you’re so ugly. 

00:02:33 Speaker 1 

They should sit you in a. 

00:02:33 Speaker 1 

Corner and feed you with a slingshot. 

00:02:36 Speaker 1 

And after the check over, he said. 

00:02:38 Speaker 1 

I’ve got good news for you and bad news for you. 

00:02:40 Speaker 1 

I said OK, what’s the bad news? 

00:02:42 Speaker 1 

He said you have homosexual tendencies. 

00:02:46 Speaker 1 

So what’s the good news? 

00:02:47 Speaker 1 

And he says, I think you’re sort of cute. 

00:02:54 Speaker 1 

Now, I wouldn’t say. 

00:02:55 Speaker 1 

That I’m fat folks, but the. 

00:02:57 Speaker 1 

Royal Winnipeg Ballet uses my pants as a dressing room. 

00:03:01 Speaker 1 

Well, I’m not the only guy here at this convention that’s enhancing the flatulent. 

00:03:05 Speaker 1 

The Bobbsey twins, that’s Bob Quinn and Bob Alexander and I were standing in the lobby on Sunday, and Jerry Acton walked, walked around us from east to West and gained the day. 

00:03:19 Speaker 1 

And last year I had a kidney transplant. 

00:03:22 Speaker 1 

My luck I inherited one from a bedwetter. 

00:03:28 Speaker 1 

Then I subscribed to Playboy Magazine and got National Geographic instead. 

00:03:33 Speaker 1 

But that’s alright. 

00:03:34 Speaker 1 

They both let you see places you can’t visit anyway. 



00:03:44 Speaker 1 

Well, not that you know me. 

00:03:47 Speaker 1 

I hope during the evening I’ll get to know you a. 

00:03:49 Speaker 1 

Little better. 

00:03:51 Speaker 1 

But now would you please join me? 

00:03:54 Speaker 1 

And the toast to Canada and a toast to the Canadian Association of Broadcasters 60th anniversary. 

00:04:02 Speaker 1 

To Canada. 

00:04:08 Speaker 1 

To the Canadian Association of Broadcasters 60th anniversary. 

00:04:17 Speaker 1 

And you did all. 

00:04:18 Speaker 1 

That when you were sober, folks. 

00:04:23 Speaker 1 

At this time, ladies and gentlemen, I would. 

00:04:26 Speaker 1 

Like to throw a few words of thank you around. 

00:04:28 Speaker 1 

We’re very grateful this evening to our hosts John Wood and Mike Hansen and the BLM Bureau of Measurement for sponsoring the cocktail hour. 

00:04:44 Speaker 1 

Lately, John and Mike have upped their BBM with Charm and grace. 

00:04:51 Speaker 1 

Well, John, well, Mike. 

00:04:54 Speaker 1 

Up yours too. 

00:04:57 Speaker 1 

And of course, we cannot forget the government of British Columbia for their financial assistance towards the Founders dinner. 

00:05:05 Speaker 1 

Would you give them some applause, please? 

00:05:11 Speaker 1 

And representing the province, the honorable Anthony Brumet, Minister of Education minister. 

00:05:18 Speaker 1 

If you please. 

00:05:28 Speaker 3 

Thank you very much. 

00:05:29 Speaker 3 

I too would like to thank the sponsors of the cocktail hour. 

00:05:42 Speaker 3 

Really, I would like to bring you greetings from the premier and the government of British Columbia and welcome all of you that are not British Columbians to British Columbia. 

00:05:53 Speaker 3 

Hope that you will enjoy your stay this time and hope that you will come back again. 

00:05:58 Speaker 3 

Also at this point. 

00:06:00 Speaker 3 

Since they may not give me another opportunity, I would like to congratulate those recipients of the quarter century club membership. 

00:06:08 Speaker 3 

The half Century Club membership and those will be inducted into the Broadcasters Hall of Fame. 

00:06:14 Speaker 3 

So thank you very much. 

00:06:15 Speaker 3 

Have a good dinner. 

00:06:24 Speaker 1 

Thank you, Mr. 

00:06:26 Speaker 1 

I might like to tell you, Sir, that. 

00:06:28 Speaker 1 

We have a very fine attorney general in the province of Alberta who is a personal friend of mine. 

00:06:34 Speaker 1 

His name is. 

00:06:34 Speaker 1 

Jim horseman. 

00:06:36 Speaker 1 

He came up to me at a gathering about two weeks ago and he came in to the gathering a little late and he said, well, cope, you’re supposed to be a funny man, he said. 

00:06:43 Speaker 1 

Tell us a joke. 

00:06:44 Speaker 1 

And I said, well, Jim, you’re supposed to be a politician. 

00:06:47 Speaker 1 

Tell us a lie. 

00:06:49 Speaker 1 

Ladies and gentlemen, time to wait. 

00:07:03 Speaker 1 

Ladies and gentlemen, while they’re clearing the tables, I’d just like to. 

00:07:08 Speaker 1 

Relate something to you. 

00:07:10 Speaker 1 

I saw a chap walking around today during the convention. 

00:07:13 Speaker 1 

He was wearing a a beautiful tie and it had a logo on it and I looked and it happened to be a BC TV logo and I said to the fella, how do how how does a guy get one of those? 

00:07:25 Speaker 1 

And he says, well, you got to see Frank Babich. 

00:07:27 Speaker 1 

So I saw Frank Babich, and I said, can I get one? 

00:07:29 Speaker 1 

And he said yes, and he brought it to me tonight. 

00:07:31 Speaker 1 

And then when he gave it to me, he said it’s worth the mention. 

00:07:35 Speaker 1 

So I have the BCTV tie here and I was just thinking folks that if any of you want to BCTV tie, just figure out how you can make a mention. 

00:07:44 Speaker 1 

But go see Frank. 

00:07:45 Speaker 1 

I’m sure he’ll have one for you. 

00:07:52 Speaker 1 

Are we ready yet? 

00:08:11 Speaker 1 

I’d sing happy birthday. 

00:08:12 Speaker 1 

But I don’t know what kind. 

00:08:15 Speaker 1 

But they tell me that in London. 

00:08:20 Speaker 1 

If you have the right key, you can sing. 

00:08:21 Speaker 1 

In any flat. 

00:08:34 Speaker 1 

Let’s have a hand for the cake. 

00:08:46 Speaker 1 

I hope Pierre Juno was in the crowd this evening, because the cakes about as big as that stamp they gave you at the band TV festival. 

00:08:53 Speaker 1 

The only thing is, it took the sauce which to lick the darn thing, that’s all. 

00:08:59 Speaker 1 

Now, tonight, ladies and gentlemen. 

00:09:02 Speaker 1 

It’s a very special night. 

00:09:03 Speaker 1 

Not only do we honor those who have made a lasting contribution to the industry. 

00:09:08 Speaker 1 

We are celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of the cab and that warrants not only a special evening such as tonight, but as you can see, an anniversary cake. 

00:09:17 Speaker 1 

I would like to ask Michelle Arpon, the Joint Board chairman, David Byrne, now you. 

00:09:26 Speaker 1 

Got to marry me. 

00:09:30 Speaker 1 

David Bond, our President and Doctor, **** Rice, the past president with the greatest seniority of service and membership to join together in cutting of our anniversary cake. 

00:09:49 Speaker 1 

And if Doctor Rice can cut this cake as well as he cuts Velveeta cheese or cuts the mustard, I’m sure it’ll be done well. 

00:10:01 Speaker 2 


00:10:01 Speaker 2 

We take care. 

00:10:02 Speaker 2 

We all hold the night together and that’s good. 

00:10:04 Speaker 2 


00:10:07 Speaker 1 

Did you wet the knife? 

00:10:20 Speaker 2 

Circular unless you’re going to Wheeler back down, back down, you’re going to cut it here. 

00:10:27 Speaker 2 


00:10:32 Speaker 1 

OK, this confusion is just natural folks. 

00:10:35 Speaker 1 

We’re going to cut the cake and then you’re. 

00:10:36 Speaker 1 

Going to get your desserts. 

00:10:38 Speaker 1 

Your just desserts. 

00:10:39 Speaker 1 

However, we would like to say that we’re happy you’re all here this evening and we hope that our program won’t be that long, but we would appreciate it. 

00:10:47 Speaker 1 

Yeah, you did it again. 

00:10:53 Speaker 1 

If you would stay till the end of our our presentations. 

00:10:56 Speaker 1 

Thank you very much. 

00:11:13 Speaker 1 

We are very pleased to have with us this evening. 

00:11:18 Speaker 1 

15 of the past presidents or past chairman of the CAB. 

00:11:22 Speaker 1 

And as I introduced them, I would ask them to stand and what is the usual thing? 

00:11:28 Speaker 1

00:11:31 Speaker 1 

I’ll tell you when.

00:13:05 Speaker 1 

My script says. 

00:13:06 Speaker 1 

I wonder what JP stands for. 

00:13:09 Speaker 1 

I would assume all of you think that it’s John Paul yet, but it really is and it stands for justifiable profits. 

00:13:19 Speaker 1 

Jay Ray Peters, Vancouver President, 1968 Ray is president and chief executive officer of Western International Communications.

00:14:07 Speaker 1

00:14:41 Speaker 1 

Congratulations to you, Don. 

00:14:44 Speaker 1 

And the man who makes up in stature, what he lacks in height, Johnny Ansell, Victoria, chairman 198182.

00:15:22 Speaker 1 

On the current CAB Joint Board chairman, ladies and gentlemen, now may we have a great round of applause for these gentlemen who have served so well for three decades. 

00:15:37 Speaker 1 

You’re a good group, I’ll tell you. 

00:15:43 Speaker 1 

Now some of you were mentioned. 

00:15:44 Speaker 1 

Will remember at this function two years ago in Edmonton. 

00:15:49 Speaker 1 

A fellow who was in the spot that I’m in now, a fellow called George Brown, who to me is one of the finest storytellers in the business. 

00:15:56 Speaker 1 

But he told everybody and reminded him that they were in the province of Alberta. 

00:16:01 Speaker 1 

Where we have rattlesnakes, prostitutes and Peter laughed. 

00:16:04 Speaker 1 

And you don’t fool around with. 

00:16:05 Speaker 1 

Any of them. 

00:16:08 Speaker 1 

And then last year in Ottawa, Conrad Levine told a story which I think bears repeating. 

00:16:15 Speaker 1 

It’s about a little fella in the southern states who was sitting on a street corner and dangling a mouse, and he was looking at the mouse and all of a sudden he looked up and there was the biggest policeman he ever saw in his life. 

00:16:27 Speaker 1 

And the policeman looked down. 

00:16:28 Speaker 1 

At him and he said. 

00:16:29 Speaker 1 

The little boy. 

00:16:30 Speaker 1 

He said whatever you do to that mouse, I’m going to do to you. 

00:16:35 Speaker 1 

Little kid sitting there with the mouse, he looks at the cop and dangles the mouse, looks at the policeman. 

00:16:40 Speaker 1 

He’s a little mouse. 

00:16:42 Speaker 1 

You don’t know it, but eyes going to kiss your ***. 

00:16:58 Speaker 1 

Now really folks, it’s pretty tough to keep up to. 

00:17:01 Speaker 1 

Those two but. 

00:17:02 Speaker 1 

When I phoned Conrad and told him I was going to him see tonight’s proceedings, he reminded me that our quarter half century function is known to some as the get together of the. 

00:17:11 Speaker 1 

Old Man’s club. 

00:17:14 Speaker 1 

And as Conrad said, when you reach that age, there are two things that you forget. 

00:17:19 Speaker 1 

The first is you forget to do up your zipper. 

00:17:22 Speaker 1 

And the second is that you forget to pull down your zipper. 

00:17:28 Speaker 1 

Now the other day I went to see my doctor and I told him that every morning I tinkle at 7 and an 8:00 o’clock. 

00:17:33 Speaker 1 

That other part of my body starts to function and the doc said don’t worry about it, Copie says. 

00:17:37 Speaker 1 

That’s perfectly normal. 

00:17:38 Speaker 1 

And I said I. 

00:17:39 Speaker 1 

Know Doc, but I don’t get up until 9. 

00:17:45 Speaker 1 

Now there’s terrible being old, you know there’s an old there’s an expression which is attributed to my old boss. 

00:17:51 Speaker 1 

His name is Bob Boss. 

00:17:53 Speaker 1 

And it goes like this. 

00:17:54 Speaker 1 

Old broadcasters never die, they just lose their frequency. 

00:18:00 Speaker 1 

Now that was said, I think in 1959 and since then I’ve seen a lot of. 

00:18:04 Speaker 1 

Grown men cry. 

00:18:06 Speaker 1 

But then I got to thinking, you know, as you get on in years. 

00:18:11 Speaker 1 

You’re probably a broadcast pioneer. 

00:18:12 Speaker 1 

When the station you work for holds a lottery for your parking space. 

00:18:17 Speaker 1 

And when the products that you bought with lifetime guarantees are made by companies that are no longer in business? 

00:18:25 Speaker 1 

And you’re getting sort of long in the tooth when the Mortuary sends you its new calendar. 

00:18:31 Speaker 1 

Six months at a time. 

00:18:35 Speaker 1 

Or when a lady puts her hand in your lap at the movies and all she’s after is your popcorn. 

00:18:42 Speaker 1 

And one you can remember that it took two guys to move a radio. 

00:18:53 Speaker 1 

And you’re an old timer. 

00:18:54 Speaker 1 

When a fortune teller offers to read your face. 

00:18:59 Speaker 1 

Or when the paid up annuity you bought in 1940 now pays you that magnificent sum of 100 bucks a month. 

00:19:06 Speaker 1 

And when you feel bad in the morning without having had any fun. 

00:19:09 Speaker 1 

The night before. 

00:19:12 Speaker 1 

And you know you’re there when everything hurts and what doesn’t hurt doesn’t work. 

00:19:20 Speaker 1 

But folks, it’s nice to be here in Umbrella City. 

00:19:29 Speaker 1 

Hey, come on. 

00:19:30 Speaker 1 

Give me a break. 

00:19:31 Speaker 1 

I only got 20 minutes to make an ask of myself. 

00:19:33 Speaker 1 

The rest of you got all night. 

00:19:35 Speaker 1 

But it’s it’s nice to be an umbrella city where they’re now in the process of renovating Jimmy Patterson’s playground. 

00:19:44 Speaker 1 

But Expo was great on a talk show. They asked Bob Hope. Polly compared Vancouver to Louisiana and he said Expo 86 New Orleans nothing. 

00:19:54 Speaker 1 

And that’s true. That’s true. 

00:20:01 Speaker 1 

But I must. 

00:20:01 Speaker 1 

Tell you on my flight to Vancouver, I was seated beside an elderly lady and we hit some pretty bad turbulence and she started to cry and she grabbed my arm and she. 

00:20:08 Speaker 1 

Said please Sir, say a prayer. 

00:20:11 Speaker 1 

I said I’m sorry, ma’am. 

00:20:12 Speaker 1 

I don’t know any prayers. 

00:20:13 Speaker 1 

And she said, well, would you do something religious? 

00:20:15 Speaker 1 

So I got up and started the bingo game. 

00:20:21 Speaker 1 

Then I hailed a taxi at the airport and got a cab with a woman driver. 

00:20:26 Speaker 1 

She said to me, how far? 

00:20:27 Speaker 1 

Do you want to go? 

00:20:30 Speaker 1 

My case comes up Thursday. 

00:20:36 Speaker 1 

Then at the hotel, the registration clerk was a pretty young thing and she said, oh, you’re from Medicine Hat. 

00:20:41 Speaker 1 

I suppose you’re here with the broadcasters and I said yes, I am. 

00:20:44 Speaker 1 

And then she said, you know, you’ll be a very amazed to know that in Vancouver, there’s a sex crime committed every 60 seconds. 

00:20:50 Speaker 1 

And I said, well, what’s that got to do with me? 

00:20:52 Speaker 1 

And she said, got a minute. 

00:20:57 Speaker 1 

But she was a pretty young lady. 

00:20:58 Speaker 1 

Reminded me of an electric typewriter. 

00:21:00 Speaker 1 

I loved the way she shifted her carriage. 

00:21:03 Speaker 1 

But then I picked up a paper and read that they had trouble in Vancouver’s West End. 

00:21:07 Speaker 1 

Last night, 3 gays attacked a woman and Vancouver police say that the two of them held her down while the other one did her hair. 

00:21:17 Speaker 1 

Then I went out for a walk and I bumped into a guy who was carrying a dog and the dog had no legs and I felt very sorry, went up to him and I said, gosh, that’s a pitiful thing. 

00:21:25 Speaker 1 

And he said, well, don’t worry about it. The dog was born that way. I said, oh, I know I said, but that’s that’s off. I said, what’s the dog’s name? 

00:21:32 Speaker 1 

He said he hasn’t got a name and I said, why don’t you give the dog a name? 

00:21:35 Speaker 1 

He said. 

00:21:35 Speaker 1 

Well, why should I? 

00:21:36 Speaker 1 

If I called him, he couldn’t come to me anyway. 

00:21:47 Speaker 1 

So I said, how does the dog get us exercise? 

00:21:49 Speaker 1 

He says I’d take him for a drag every morning. 

00:21:54 Speaker 1 

He said. 

00:21:54 Speaker 1 

But he’s a smart dog, he said. 

00:21:55 Speaker 1 

We just walked by a fence and it. 

00:21:56 Speaker 1 

Said wet paint. 

00:21:57 Speaker 1 

And he did. 

00:22:00 Speaker 1 

But Vancouver is a great town and I must say it will even be better once they get. 

00:22:04 Speaker 1 

It finished. 

00:22:11 Speaker 1 

Getting back to business folks, in 1973 Pierre Camus became the first full-time president of the Association. Pierre couldn’t be with us tonight, but he did send a message, which I’d like to share with you, it reads. 

00:22:25 Speaker 1 

Congratulations to members of the CAB for the quality of service they provide to the public and for their professionalism and interest in their work. 

00:22:33 Speaker 1 

Continue to give full support to your association in the years to come to have been associated with you through the CAB has been a wonderful experience, signed Pierre Camus. 

00:22:45 Speaker 1 

Applause. Applause. 

00:22:50 Speaker 1 

Gigi Ernest Steele served as Saab president from 1978 to 1985. He was unable to join us, but his thoughts are with us. 

00:22:59 Speaker 1 

A quote from a letter to C AB chairman Michel Arpas. 

00:23:03 Speaker 1 

I certainly would have enjoyed this opportunity to share such an important occasion and to renew my many contacts with former colleagues. 

00:23:10 Speaker 1 

However, I have concluded that I cannot make the meeting for a whole variety of reasons. 

00:23:16 Speaker 1 

60 years is an amazing span of time and my personal memories do include the early days of Canadian radio in the 1920s. 

00:23:23 Speaker 1 

Having lived for the first decade of my life in the border city of Windsor, I can also recall the powerful influence exercised by the Detroit stations on the programming of those days. 

00:23:32 Speaker 1 

It was a privilege for me to have been the head of the association. 

00:23:35 Speaker 1 

For a number of years, when many of the present concerns have become matters of national study and debate, clearly the role of the private associations will be to move forward once again with strong statements of the importance of Canadian private broadcasting to Canadian identity and cultural objectives. 

00:23:53 Speaker 1 

I wish you and all the present, all those who were present and former members of the association, the very best, as you hold this 60th anniversary meeting. 

00:24:08 Speaker 1 

And our current president, as you know, is David Bond, who joined the association in 1985. 

00:24:15 Speaker 1 

Well, excuse me. 

00:24:17 Speaker 1 

That was a great meal, wasn’t it? 

00:24:20 Speaker 1 

But right now I’ve got so much gas I think I’ve got Marcel Mass following me around trying to. 

00:24:25 Speaker 1 

Make a deal. 

00:24:31 Speaker 1 

You know, there are four stages to a broadcaster’s career. The first one is who is ORF cope. 

00:24:37 Speaker 1 

The second is Get Me Out of cope. 

00:24:40 Speaker 1 

The third is get me a young ORF cope. 

00:24:43 Speaker 1 

And the 4th is who the hell is ORF cope? 

00:24:47 Speaker 1 

But aside from the sessions that you will be attending during this Convention, ladies and gentlemen, it’s nice to get together with your peers, friends and acquaintances to talk about what’s new and lie a little about the past. 

00:24:58 Speaker 1 

But some of you younger fellows who are in the audience this evening should know a few things about those who have spent years, if not a lifetime in this business. 

00:25:06 Speaker 1 

Like past presidents Jean Poulet and Ray Peters, I served on their executive committees while I was on the board. 

00:25:12 Speaker 1 

And I must admit that I always felt sorry for the two of them. 

00:25:17 Speaker 1 

Because you see, every time it rained, they were the last to know. 

00:25:26 Speaker 1 

It’ll get here. I’ll wait. 

00:25:29 Speaker 1 

And remember, walking down the street at one convention with Ross Mccreath in a pretty young girl passed this and Ross said I guess I must be losing my sex drive. 

00:25:36 Speaker 1 

That little girl never affected me and I said, hell, Ross, I must be losing my mind. 

00:25:40 Speaker 1 

I never even thought of it. 

00:25:46 Speaker 1 

And then I don’t know whether you know this folks, but Rory Mcclennan bought. 

00:25:48 Speaker 1 

A water bed. 

00:25:50 Speaker 1 

Jan wanted it for sleeping and Rory stocked it with trout. 

00:25:57 Speaker 1 

And Gene Cain, you’re not going to get out of this Scott free either. 

00:26:00 Speaker 1 

You know, Gene, every time, every time she meets me, she calls me a ***** ***. 

00:26:04 Speaker 1 

And until tonight, I took it. 

00:26:06 Speaker 1 

But tonight, you know, want I want you to know that I consider that as a real compliment. 

00:26:10 Speaker 1 

Because to me, a smart asss is a guy who can sit on an ice cream cone and tell you what flavor it is. 

00:26:20 Speaker 1 

And John McCall, who phoned a plumber last week and said I got a leak in my sink and he said. 

00:26:24 Speaker 1 

Go ahead, McCall. 

00:26:24 Speaker 1 

It’s your sink. 

00:26:28 Speaker 1 

You know, the older they are, the better. 

00:26:30 Speaker 1 

They get. 

00:26:32 Speaker 1 

And I don’t know whether you know this folks, but Vern Dellene’s on speed. 

00:26:36 Speaker 1 

Yeah, he takes prune juice every morning. 

00:26:39 Speaker 1 

Have you ever heard of Don Jamieson speech? 

00:26:43 Speaker 1 

Well, Don Jamieson’s speeches have rung more bells than a desperate aborn lady. 

00:26:47 Speaker 1 

And if you’ve ever had your bells rung by a desperate Avon lady, you know what a. 

00:26:51 Speaker 1 

Thrill that can be. 

00:26:54 Speaker 1 

And then there’s Bill McGregor. 

00:26:55 Speaker 1 

Where’s bill? 

00:26:56 Speaker 1 

I saw him. 

00:26:57 Speaker 1 

Bill down here. 

00:26:58 Speaker 1 

You know that he took up gardening this summer. 

00:27:00 Speaker 1 

Oh, he did. 

00:27:01 Speaker 1 

As a matter of fact, he he crossed the pea plant with the kidney bean and it grew like hell because it watered itself every day. 

00:27:10 Speaker 1 

And Don Brenton who? 

00:27:11 Speaker 1 

Never lets the fact that he’s in television bother him, because let’s face it. 

00:27:16 Speaker 1 

Television is an invention where you’re entertained in your living room by people you wouldn’t. 

00:27:20 Speaker 1 

Have in your house. 

00:27:25 Speaker 1 

But television, I’ll tell you, as far as commercials are concerned, they’ve got the most believability of any other media. 

00:27:30 Speaker 1 

I don’t care what anybody says. 

00:27:31 Speaker 1 

It’s true. 

00:27:32 Speaker 1 

Case in point, I have a 3 year old grandson. 

00:27:35 Speaker 1 

Dairy Queen was on television with an ad advertising a Blizzard, a new product, a Blizzard. 

00:27:41 Speaker 1 

My grandson wanted a Blizzard. 

00:27:43 Speaker 1 

I took him to the Dairy Queen and I bought him a Blizzard. 

00:27:46 Speaker 1 

He ate it and two minutes later he snowed in his pants. 

00:27:51 Speaker 1 

And a jolly Green Giant the guys put. 

00:27:54 Speaker 1 

Me off tin. 

00:27:55 Speaker 1 

Goods forever. 

00:27:56 Speaker 1 

You ever see the way that mother stands over? 

00:27:58 Speaker 1 

That vegetable patch. 

00:28:01 Speaker 1 

No wonder he’s always going. 

00:28:08 Speaker 1 

And Ian Ritchie from the CBC is here tonight. 

00:28:10 Speaker 1 

Now let me tell you something about Ian. 

00:28:12 Speaker 1 

You know, he’s a. 

00:28:12 Speaker 1 

Funny way to clean out his system? 

00:28:15 Speaker 1 

He never takes xalax. 

00:28:16 Speaker 1 

He sits on a piece of cheese and swallows a moose. 

00:28:25 Speaker 1 

And palm over the hill. 

00:28:27 Speaker 1 

You know Paul’s so. 

00:28:29 Speaker 1 

Old that he can remember when sex was dirty and. 

00:28:31 Speaker 1 

The air was clean. 

00:28:35 Speaker 1 

And I’ll never forget the day. 

00:28:37 Speaker 1 

That Eddie Rollinson was stopped in the street and asked if he’d like to be a Jehovah’s Witness and Eddie said. 

00:28:41 Speaker 1 

Hell, no. 

00:28:42 Speaker 1 

I didn’t even see the accident. 

00:28:48 Speaker 1 

And I’m told that every time Scotty shows is turned on by the CRCC, he goes out and buys another business. 

00:28:54 Speaker 1 

The last time he was turned down, he invested in a chicken farm, 3000 chickens and the bloody rooster was gay. 

00:29:03 Speaker 1 

No, I’m not saying that Scotty is rich, but he hired Charlie Bronson as a watchdog. 

00:29:10 Speaker 1 

Then he bought the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to use as a door chime. 

00:29:14 Speaker 1 

And because he’s a believer in solar energy, he just made a deal with Farrah Fawcett to sit on his roof. 

00:29:21 Speaker 1 

And then there’s my old friend Don Smith. 

00:29:25 Speaker 1 

Don has been called a thinker by people who Lisp. 

00:29:38 Speaker 1 

Now a lot of you people think you know Don Smith. 

00:29:42 Speaker 1 

Well, I know Don Smith. 

00:29:45 Speaker 1 

To a lot of people, Don is well at first, he’s disgusting. 

00:29:51 Speaker 1 

He’s obscene and then he’s lewd. 

00:29:55 Speaker 1 

Well, for those of us who know him and love him, he’s exactly the opposite. 

00:30:01 Speaker 1 

First he’s loaded, then he’s obscene and then he’s disgusting. 

00:30:08 Speaker 1 

I was also going to say lascivious, but nobody out there would know what the hell I’m talking about. 

00:30:14 Speaker 1 

Gosh, I wish I was sitting out there. 

00:30:16 Speaker 1 

I’d just. 

00:30:16 Speaker 1 

Love to hear what I’m saying. 

00:30:20 Speaker 1 

I’d like to break this camaraderie up just for a moment, and I know this is not. 

00:30:24 Speaker 1 

A program and I I’m sorry, but in the audience tonight as a gentleman. 

00:30:30 Speaker 1 

Just did me a favor and I know a lot of other young broadcasters a favor and he’s here tonight. 

00:30:34 Speaker 1 

He flew in, I think, just specifically for this evening. 

00:30:37 Speaker 1 

And I would just like to say publicly thank you to this gentleman. 

00:30:42 Speaker 1 

He’s out there in the audience in this big room someplace and all that I want to say is Norman bottle. 

00:30:46 Speaker 1 

Thank you very much. 

00:30:47 Speaker 1 

God, I love you.

00:01:12 Speaker 1 

Gosh, you wish I’d have. 

00:01:13 Speaker 1 

Said that. 

00:01:15 Speaker 2 

Nice to see you again, Morris. 

00:01:18 Speaker 2 

The next recipient of a broadcast Hall of Fame plaque is Jack TH Xfinity. 

00:01:24 Speaker 2 

Who has an outstanding record of achievements stretching from 1945 when he joined voice of the Atlantic Radio CFNM B Frederickton. 

00:01:32 Speaker 2 

Jack was a founding member of the Maritime Association of Broadcasters, now the AAB, and has served in various capacities including President of AAB. 

00:01:42 Speaker 2 

He was extended honorary life membership in 1983 by the AB and he was elected to the CAB Board of Directors in 1963 and served the National Association for 9 consecutive years. 

00:01:54 Speaker 2 

Including a term as Vice President, Radio, an outstanding and outspoken champion of private enterprise, the cab is pleased to induct Jack TH Finity into its broadcast Hall of Fame. 

00:02:13 Speaker 1 

I’m just delighted. 

00:02:21 Speaker 2 

Unaccustomed as I am to public speaking, I want first of all to express my thanks to our genial, laughable master of ceremonies, my old friend the First Cowboy I ever knew who had an unnumbered Swiss bank account. 

00:02:42 Speaker 2 

I understand or got the job because he was the low bidder. 

00:02:48 Speaker 2 

But when you get when you get to be our age, you take any job that comes along and you’re grateful for. 

00:02:56 Speaker 2 

But Doug and I both made medical history just a little younger than I slightly. We made medical history in 1985. I had a prostatectomy or being younger, he had a vasectomy. 

00:03:11 Speaker 2 

I want to thank the Canadian Association of Broadcasters for providing ward with a return ticket from prescription chapeau to Vancouver in return. 

00:03:21 Speaker 2 

I also want to thank the Western Association of Broadcasters for making the momentous decision to send all that Western money down east to rent that Sid silver suit that always dressed. 

00:03:31 Speaker 1 

In the most. 

00:03:37 Speaker 2 

In a more serious vein, I want to thank the Canadian Association of Broadcasters. 

00:03:43 Speaker 2 

I personally think my achievements not great enough to be enshrined in this great Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame, however. 

00:03:53 Speaker 2 

Being a humble man, I do accept the decision of my peers. 

00:04:04 Speaker 2 

I want also to thank the Neal family for giving me the opportunity, some well, many years ago, to enter private broadcasting. 

00:04:14 Speaker 2 

I’m still a firm believer and staunch advocate of the free enterprise system. 

00:04:19 Speaker 2 

I believe many things are unfair in the system under which we operate. I’d like to see many of them change some of the rules have been loosened up since I first came into broadcasting in 1945, but there are many owners restrictions that still remain. 

00:04:35 Speaker 2 

Such as broadcast license is having to be renewed. 

00:04:37 Speaker 2 

I think that they should be in perpetuity for good behavior. 

00:04:41 Speaker 2 

I see no reason why not. 

00:04:43 Speaker 2 

I want to thank all of you for a wonderful evening. 

00:04:47 Speaker 2 

I want to thank the Maritime Atlantic Association of Broadcasters for having nominated me, and I want to thank as well the CAA. 

00:04:54 Speaker 2 

The selection Committee for having honoured me tonight, thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. 

00:05:09 Speaker 2 

Jack, it wasn’t a vasectomy. 

00:05:11 Speaker 2 

It was a hemorrhoidectomy. 

00:05:14 Speaker 2 

And I want you to know. 

00:05:15 Speaker 2 

My proctologist got his training from roto-rooter, but. 

00:05:21 Speaker 2 

And I also want you to know, Jack, that I heard today that every time a man kisses a strange woman, he loses a strand of hair. 

00:05:27 Speaker 2 

And I’d like to congratulate you very much. 

00:05:31 Speaker 2 

But Jack, don’t ever change. 

00:05:32 Speaker 2 

They want to forget you just the way they are. 

00:05:36 Speaker 2 

Love you.

Association for Sote moyas mercy. 

00:08:23 Speaker 2 

Our next inductee has had a high profile. 

00:08:27 Speaker 2 

The Honorable Donald Jamieson served 11 years as Liberal cabinet minister before moving to London to one of Canada’s top diplomatic posts. 

00:08:37 Speaker 2 

High Commissioner in Britain, Don served 4 consecutive years as President of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters, where he spoke out loudly and often in favor of private enterprise. 

00:08:47 Speaker 2 

His performances as a news reader and commentator became part of the broadcasting lore of the country, with talk of how he would glance at a wire story, confront a microphone or a TV. 

00:08:58 Speaker 2 

Camera and talk, unprompted, for half an hour, the Saab is honored to include the Honorable Don Jamieson in the CAB broadcast Hall of Fame. 

00:09:09 Speaker 2 

Jamieson cannot be with us this evening, but we will make sure that he receives his plaque. 

00:09:18 Speaker 3 

Now the next one for me is pretty special because this man I hold to be a living treasure in my life. 

00:09:25 Speaker 3 

Politics has been more than a passing interest for our next inductee. 

00:09:29 Speaker 3 

It’s our senator E Finley McDonald. 

00:09:34 Speaker 3 

And who will come? 

00:09:37 Speaker 3 

And his political career? 

00:09:39 Speaker 3 

He was the national PC chairman in the election of 1972 and the principal assistant to the Honorable Robert Stanfield in the 1982 senior adviser to the Right Honourable Joe Clark. 

00:09:52 Speaker 3 

During the 198384 he was the chairman of the Committee on the Government Planning reporting to the then leader of the opposition, the now Prime Minister of the Right Honourable Brian Mulroney. 

00:10:03 Speaker 3 

For 25 years, Finley has served as served rather as president of CJCC limit. 

00:10:09 Speaker 3 

He was elected to the CAB president in 1955 as the youngest member in the history of the association and was a founding director of the CTV Television Network. He was awarded the Order of Canada in 1969. 

00:10:23 Speaker 3 

Finley was summoned to the Senate candidate in December of 1983, and it is with pleasure and honor that we summon him this evening to the CABG broadcast Hall of Fame. 

00:10:56 Speaker 5 

It’s hard to believe that I was the President of this Association 32 year. 

00:11:01 Speaker 5 

I was a child and. 

00:11:04 Speaker 5 

And if you look back upon my record and my utterances of that time, it’ll it’ll. 

00:11:09 Speaker 5 

It’ll bear me out, yeah. 

00:11:12 Speaker 5 

I thank you very much for this honor. 

00:11:15 Speaker 5 

During the many happy years I spent. 

00:11:18 Speaker 5 

As a broadcaster. 

00:11:21 Speaker 5 

I at that time believed. 

00:11:23 Speaker 5 

In an afterlife, but having been summoned to the Senate, I realized that it’s it’s right here, I think. 

00:11:42 Speaker 2 

Our next nominee is unable to be with us this evening. 

00:11:46 Speaker 2 

Nevertheless, he is a man of large stature in the broadcasting industry. 

00:11:50 Speaker 2 

Orel Pelcher joined CHRC Quebec in 1929, where he quickly rose to the ranks to become general manager. He served on the board of directors of CA. 

00:12:00 Speaker 2 

And as the vice president, ACR TF, Mr. 

00:12:03 Speaker 2 

Peltier is retired and resides in Sainfoin, Quebec. 

00:12:08 Speaker 2 

We are pleased to welcome Orel Pelcher. 

00:12:11 Speaker 2 

And my dear friend Ariel Peltier to the CAB broadcast Hall of Fame. 

00:12:20 Speaker 1 

And I believe. 

00:12:22 Speaker 2 

Henry Audette is going to accept the presentation for him. 

00:12:36 Speaker 6 

Sit there. 

00:12:41 Speaker 6 

Owner or no, there are real pets here. 

00:12:53 Speaker 6 

I spoke to Ariel Peltier on the telephone this afternoon and asked him if there was any special message that he would like me to convey to the audience, and he said first, I’d like to thank the CB for this honor. 

00:13:08 Speaker 6 

It’s been a privilege to work for the CIA B, and he said I would. 

00:13:13 Speaker 6 

To you to extend to all of my friends my best greetings. 

00:13:19 Speaker 6 

And he said please also remind them that if there is a private broadcasting industry today that it is due to the CAB and that it is due to all The Pioneers who worked. 

00:13:35 Speaker 6 

Within the cab to defend the interests of private broadcasting, which was scheduled to be nationalized. 

00:13:44 Speaker 6 

As you all know, so from Morell, Pelty best meetings and heartfelt thanks. 

00:14:01 Speaker 3 

The career of our next inductee spans 45 years of extensive, continuous, innovative service to the industry in both public and private broadcasting. 

00:14:12 Speaker 3 

Ernie Rose is an exemplary model of the dreamer and the Preserver. 

00:14:19 Speaker 3 

As an engineer extraordinaire. 

00:14:21 Speaker 3 

His innovative skills, his dedication to the industry and his determined attitude for the role of private broadcasting deserve recognition for his significant contribution to the Canadian Broadcasting system. 

00:14:35 Speaker 3 

He is one of the few people in the industry who has dealt innocently with the spark Gap transmitter all the way through to the sophistication of modern technology in the development of satellite broadcasting. 

00:14:48 Speaker 3 

Ernie has received many honors and they’re all well deserved. 

00:14:52 Speaker 3 

But it is truly a great pleasure for me and for the association to welcome him to the CAB broadcast Hall of Fame. 

00:15:00 Speaker 3 

Ladies and gentlemen, Ernie Rose. 

00:15:09 Speaker 1 

Thank you. 

00:15:14 Speaker 7 

I think. 

00:15:17 Speaker 7 

But after listening to our V as an engineer, I think you’ll all have to agree. 

00:15:22 Speaker 7 

That engineers are usually not very good and tonight I am deeply honored and quite simply, I’d like to say that I’ve been very fortunate to have had a tremendous staff. 

00:15:34 Speaker 7 

We’re very capable and over the years helped turn a lot of dreams and fantasies into reality. 

00:15:41 Speaker 7 

And I’ve also been very privileged to work with. 

00:15:44 Speaker 7 

A great group of colleagues at BCTV who are most supportive. 

00:15:49 Speaker 7 

But most of all, I feel honored and certainly very thankful for having worked with and met so many great broadcasters from one into Canada, the other and thank. 

00:15:59 Speaker 7 

You CAB. 

00:16:10 Speaker 2 

No one is more deserving of recognition than our last inductee, Doctor Andrew Stewart, former chairman of the Board of Broadcast Governors, the separate regulatory body for which Jim Ellard and the CAB campaigned for years. It was during doctor Stuart’s term that private radio got a new set of regulations. 

00:16:30 Speaker 2 

Suited to the times. 

00:16:32 Speaker 2 

Second, television stations were licensed and the CTV Network was formed. 

00:16:37 Speaker 2 

Station zoning FM transmitters were allowed to broadcast separate programming and new AM and FM licenses were granted. 

00:16:45 Speaker 2 

Doctor Stewart worked tirelessly and sat with noticeable compassion through dozens of lengthy hearings allowing all contenders and their interveners ample opportunity to state their case. 

00:16:56 Speaker 2 

The CAB is honored and proud to include Doctor Andrew Stewart in the CAB broadcast. 

00:17:04 Speaker 2 

Hall of Fame. 

00:17:24 Speaker 8 

You have as always. 

00:17:27 Speaker 8 

Being most kind and generous. 

00:17:30 Speaker 8 

And I am deeply appreciative and grateful for the honor you have done me. 

00:17:35 Speaker 8 

Thank you all very much and the best of luck to all of you. 

00:17:38 Speaker 8 

Miss me, mercy. 

00:17:47 Speaker 2 

And thank you. Double. 

00:17:49 Speaker 2 

07 for for your assistance. 

00:17:57 Speaker 2 

I must admit that this time that I might introduce to Doctor Stewart I. 

00:18:03 Speaker 2 

I was told and had to work from a script. 

00:18:06 Speaker 2 

But I wanted to introduce Doctor Andrew in a quite well quite a different parlance. 

00:18:12 Speaker 2 

I wanted to say that. 

00:18:14 Speaker 2 

With this man, the characterization of specific criteria adds explicit performance limit to the subsystem compatibility of testing, the intransigence of broadcast boha based on integral considerations and associated supporting elements presents extremely interesting challenges to the philosophy of commonality in the greater fight worthiness concept. 

00:18:34 Speaker 2 

So in respect of specific goals, the primary interrelationship between the broadcaster and the regulator has overriding performance constraints to the total system rationale and the decision making process for which doctor Stewart was responsible. 

00:18:54 Speaker 2 

You see Doctor Andy, I learned to talk like that by attending the hearings and appearing in front of the PRTSC so often. 

00:19:04 Speaker 2 

There’s one thing that has happened at previous. 

00:19:10 Speaker 2 

They are no longer being held. 

00:19:11 Speaker 2 

I don’t know whether that’s good or bad. 

00:19:13 Speaker 5 

But we used. 

00:19:14 Speaker 2 

To hold what they call the BMI dinners, they’re a very extravagant, opulent type of thing. 

00:19:22 Speaker 2 

And it happened. 

00:19:24 Speaker 2 

It so happened it it just evolved that. 

00:19:27 Speaker 2 

But Conrad Levine and I were the ones who were delegated to get up and. 

00:19:32 Speaker 2 

And tell a few stories and and and. 

00:19:35 Speaker 2 

The reason being mainly because. 

00:19:37 Speaker 2 

We didn’t charge them for our talents. 

00:19:41 Speaker 2 

However, there is one story which. 

00:19:45 Speaker 2 

They made me tell every year and I know some of you have heard it quite often, but with your permission, those of you who have heard it, I would like to tell it again. 

00:19:58 Speaker 2 

This is a story of an Alberta broadcaster. 

00:20:01 Speaker 2 

Who just loves to hunt. 

00:20:05 Speaker 2 

And when the hunting season opens, he just goes crazy. 

00:20:09 Speaker 2 

The morning that the goose season opened, he jumped out of bed at the crack of dawn, turned up the blind. 

00:20:14 Speaker 2 

He was a. 

00:20:15 Speaker 2 

Little weak, he went up with it. 

00:20:18 Speaker 2 

And on the way down turned to his wife and said LOL LOL LOL. 

00:20:20 Speaker 2 

Lovely day for whole hunting and she said yes it is. 

00:20:22 Speaker 2

00:20:23 Speaker 2

00:20:33 Speaker 2

00:22:36 Speaker 2

Did you get a goose? 

00:22:40 Speaker 2 

And he said. 

00:22:41 Speaker 2 

I’ll kiss my ***. 

00:23:13 Speaker 2 

Some of you are wondering how that story is told. 

00:23:16 Speaker 2 

I’m going to tell you how it’s told I’m going to let the cat out of. 

00:23:19 Speaker 2 

The bag this evening. 

00:23:22 Speaker 2 

You go to the vowel of the word, you stop, you add an LF to the vowel of the word. 

00:23:27 Speaker 2 

Then you go back to the vowel of the word and finish the word. 

00:23:30 Speaker 2 

For instance, if the word if your name is Bob, the vowel is ah, so it’s ball fob, and this is Bill McGregor. 

00:23:39 Speaker 2 

So it’s Bill, Phil, McGrail, fegor. 

00:23:43 Speaker 2 

And if your name is Judy, it’s jewel foodie. 

00:23:46 Speaker 2 

And if your name is Don Carter, it’s dolphin call fighter. 

00:23:51 Speaker 2 

So you’ve got to watch, you know, once you learn the story, just exactly what you say. 

00:23:57 Speaker 2 

And the one thing I must warn you against is that you should never, ever shoot ducks in mixed company. 

00:24:13 Speaker 2 

Ladies and gentlemen. 

00:24:15 Speaker 2 

Psychiatrists tell us that one out of every four Canadians is mentally ill. 

00:24:21 Speaker 2 

So check your friends. 

00:24:24 Speaker 2 

If three of them are OK, you’re the one and it is now 12 minutes of 10. 

00:24:35 Speaker 2 

And tomorrow when somebody asks you what did cope have to say last night. 

00:24:40 Speaker 2 

Well, you can honestly say not a hell of a lot, but at least he gave us the right time. 

00:24:48 Speaker 2 

And now, ladies and gentlemen, if you look at your broadcasters, Hall of Fame, I think it’s up. 

00:24:54 Speaker 2 

There is it not. 

00:24:56 Speaker 2 

This may come as a shock to you. 

00:24:58 Speaker 2 

But I’m through. 

00:25:00 Speaker 2 

And this function is finished. 

00:25:02 Speaker 2 

If I’ve offended, I apologize if you laughed and enjoyed yourself, I’m happy and glad. 

00:25:08 Speaker 2 

We thank you for your attention. 

00:25:10 Speaker 2 

Good evening. 

00:25:11 Speaker 2 

God bless.
