Interview with Jim Hurcomb about his new book: "Rockin' on the Rideau: Ottawa's Golden Age of Rock and Roll" (Friesen Press).
About Jim Hurcomb: Unless your mom hid your transistor radio in 1973 and still hasn’t given it back, chances are you know who Jim Hurcomb is. From 1973 to 1980, Jim was one of the most popular voices on CKCU FM, Ottawa’s first cool FM station. From 1980 to 2000 he hosted a number of programs on CHEZ 106, including the afternoon variety show “In The City”, the very loud “Power Chords” and the flagship “Morning Show”, first as half of “Geoff (Winter) and Jim”, and later as “Jim and J.R. (John Rogers)". Then it was 8 years at CFRA co-hosting “Middle-Aged, Bald Guys” with Al Fleming. These days, some 47 years after pushing that first button, Hurcomb is still behind the microphone, hosting and producing “The Sound of the Underground” on LIVE88.5, heard Sunday nights at 9. Away from radio, Jim is deeply involved in other aspects of music as a musician, teacher, music trivia host and writer. “Rockin’ on the Rideau” is his first book.
