      Nick Orchard: " Denny left CKVN in April of 1972 to go to CHUM, but came back to CFUN (they recovered their call letters) 1973 to 1974 before returning to CHUM." 1410 AM - CKVN Staff saying "Farewell" to Rock DJ, Denny O'Neil/ Bob McGee, who was doing his last show at CKVN before leaving for a new DJ gig in Toronto at CHUM Radio. The Vancouver, BC radio gang had a nip or two during Denny O'Neil's last CKVN evening show, which became more evident as the show progressed that night in Studio C in the old CKVN (formerly C-FUN) radio studios that were at 1900 West 4th Avenue (now a Salvation Army Thrift Store) in beautiful Kitsilano-Vancouver, Canada. Thanks to Nick Orchard for saving a "bootleg" reel to reel tape copy of that night in Vancouver radio history, that took place in the early 1970s.

          • Seal Sees The Sea

            Harbour Seal’s form an integral part of both the tourists and residents impression of the Vancouver seascape. Walking along the seawall, we humans are often surprised by the sudden appearance of seals, who seem just as curious about us. Their sudden materialisation is often just as swift as their disappearance (frequently with no indication of where they might reappear – much to the annoyance of photographers). This piece reverses the perspective by following the journey of a inquisitive harbour seal as she visits a variety of sites around the Vancouver shoreline and seawall throughout the day – watching us humans as we go about our various activities and sightseeing.

                  • An artist and a journalist agree to disagree about some public art.


                    from Michael Cox / Added

                    Two friends of mine, one a graphic artist who has designed and illustrated books, the other a former journalist now running a journalism program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, met for the first time here at Kits Point, Vancouver, at my invitation to take part in this video, to discuss three works of art. I knew that Beverley had strong feelings about the first work--she hated it, and makes no bones about it. I assumed that my friend Derek, an artist, would be supportive of the installation. The first work is called Freezing Water #7, by Jun Ren, installed for the 2009-2011 Vancouver Biennale at Kitsilano Point in Vancouver. The second work is Gate to the Northwest Passage by Alan Chung Hung (1980), and the third is The Stop, another Biennale temporary installation, is by Michael Zheng.
