I Witnessed a MuchMusic Reunion

Last night, I was at The Royal Cinema for an event billed as MuchMusic Retro Mixtape. It was a discussion with Christopher Ward and fantastic video collections curated by Retrontario. Along the way, other veejays from the era would take the stage to share stories. It was awesome for this nostalgia addict.

In addition to Christopher, who was my guest for episode 202 of Toronto Mike'd, the following veejays made appearances:

  • Michael Williams
  • Laurie Brown
  • Denise Donlan
  • Kim Clarke Champniss
  • Master T
  • Simon Evans
  • Ziggy

It was three hours of great stories, vintage videos and a wonderful trip down memory lane. And I finally got a picture with the first MuchMusic veejay.

Very cool Mike, all the podcast work at least pays off in some way!

What a night that must have been! An era so many of us look back on with such fondness.

I'm hoping for a TM podcast with each one on this list!

I spoke with Ziggy today. She'll come over when I return from a trip I have to make. Mid-December, most likely.

I also spoke with Denise Donlan. We're going to touch base at the end of the month when things calm down for her.

I'll get to the others eventually, I promise. :)
