Traffic (1983 - 1984)
From the moment I heard CFNY in the late 70s, I knew I wanted to work there. I became the 'traffic goddess' (James Scott's description, not mine) for one year - 83-84 (Leaving for CBC was a big mistake -- did anybody read that Dunford column??) I still have the t-shirt/poster and button when we started broadcasting from the CN tower, Nov. 29, 1984. I couldn't figure out which streets I was looking at from way up there.. I'll never forget trivial pursuit with Mike Stafford -- what a smart guy. And Kevin O'Leary regularly making me mess up on air when filling in for the amazing Warren Downs. My car, affectionately named Val (short for Valiant, the only car you could afford working for NY as a traffic reporter) even got fan mail sent to her! Playing "La Bats across the border' in Youngstown, NY was great as part of the Wankees. And the best part was when Marsden let all us staff spin discs..I think I opened with Johnny Strikes Up the Band, Warren Zevon, and closed with the Sex Pistols' EMI..it was one of the finest hours of my life.
