Toronto Rocks!

CN TowerThere's surprisingly little about "Toronto Rocks" on the web. IMDB doesn't acknowledge its existence at all. I'm not referring to the 2003 AC~DC / Rolling Stones concert following SARS, there's a wealth of information about, I'm talking about my daily video show from the early 1980s.

My memories of "Toronto Rocks" are vivid. I can see the backdrop, I remember it was hosted by J.D. Roberts and I remember it aired every afternoon on City-TV. I wrote more about the program in November 2004.

J.D. Roberts, now known as John Roberts, has left CBS for CNN where he'll work as a senior national correspondent based in Washington. Should the CNN gig fail to work out, re-kindling the "Toronto Rocks" fires could be a natural next move. I'll be watching, hairspray in hand.

A Canuck in Cali

I was just watching him on CNN reporting on the Immigrant Amnesty issues on the hill... it would seem so much natural if he still donned his leather jacket and mullet...
