The Oor Club Presents: Denis Snowdon

March 6, 2015 @ 12:00 pm5:00 pm

The next meeting of “Oor Club” will be Friday, March 6th 2015 at 12 noon at the “Duke of York” pub on Prince Arthur Avenue, steps from the St.George Subway and we are delighted to have radio broadcaster Denis Snowdon as our guest speaker.

Denis was born in Glasgow, Scotland and came to Canada in 1964 and has lived in Oakville ever since. He is married to Denise and they have three children and six grandchildren.

In addition to his popularity as a broadcaster, Denis was President of The Travel Corner in Oakville for 30 years. Although retired from those day-to-day business activities, he continues to be involved in special group projects.

As the producer and host of “A Little Breath of Scotland,” Denis is looking forward to celebrating the show’s 50th Anniversary in October this year. The longevity of the show is an achievement that very few in the industry can match, and is certainly the longest running Scottish show in North America – perhaps the world.

The show first aired on October 21, 1965 as a half hour programme on CHWO Radio in Oakville, and the following week it was extended to an hour long show, and has been on the air every week since then. For more than 25 years the show was heard on Saturdays from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m., before moving to Sundays from 4 to 6 p.m. when CHWO 1250 became AM740 in 2001. In 2008 AM740 was purchased by Moses Znaimer, and this unique show was recognized by him at that time as one of his favourite shows on the station.
