Toronto Rocks Promo With John Mahjor

memoryYouTube user Retrontario frequently uploads fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems. These clips never fail to bring back a ton of memories for me, so I feature them from time to time.

When John Mahjor passed away last year, I issued a Toronto Rocks host clarification. Major was the host of Toronto Rocks, but I could only find a YouTube clip featuring Brad Giffen, who eventually took over for Mahjor.

Thanks to Retrontario, I now have a sweet City-TV Toronto Rocks promo from 1984.

Hey Mike - I was there. I have footage of John Mahjor interviewing Mike Peters and Dave Sharp of "The Alarm" - one of my favourite bands of the 80s....

I was on Lunch Television twice, and had met John there. I had no idea that he had passed away. Sad.

Miss him. I met him and have his autograph. Still remember watching To Rocks when the Barrie tornado hit...
