"...one time host of McNally's Masquerade or Matinee, depending on what shift he was doing. He ended up in Australia, Perth I think."

No other single person, with his phenomenal show _The Eclectic Spirit_, so influenced my perceptions of how musics could be experienced on radio, than Brad McNally. Certainly others overlapped musically. For instance, in the early days even Marsden would play very progressive musics; continuing the tradition of earlier, classic FM experimental and progressive programming. I think it was 1986 when I wrote Brad a snail mail fan letter. He was in Australia at the time. He sent me an original 'Eclectic Spirit' poster and various bits of nostalgic trivia, and I sent him some samples of what I and friends were up to at CKLN. Now we're FaceBook friends, and it's about time we 'Eclectic Spirit' fans pool together what we've got for a FB group dedicated to the show's memory! If you're on FB search my name, Peri Didaskalou, and send me a friend request. Also on FB is Don Garbutt, a Great Ontario Talent Search finalist, with his entry 'Cosmic Unity' (1980).
