Date of Incorporation: January 20, 1978

Origin of Operations: Radio Waterloo evolved from the Broadcasting Club / Broadcasting Association at the University of Waterloo which was operating in the early to mid 1960’s.

Board of Directors: By the organizations By-Laws The board of directors has 4 Official Executive Officers: President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Corporate Secretary. The board is composed of 7 directors including the 4 Executive Officers. In 2008 the Corporation opted for a means based working/administrative board to take over prior responsibilities of the staff including SoundFM’s general manager. The measure implemented via committees that are in time to be administered by the membership rather than board members; however, the each board member is tasked with oversight and facilitation of each specific operating committee. Once committees are in place by general members the board would revert to its Carver model Traditional Policy Governance Board operation model. Specific to our operation of a radio station facilitating for a general manager for the station would be a requirement before the Carver Model resumption.

He’s Back on the Corrie Cobbles – Charles “Jim McDonald” Lawson from Tales From The Street

This is a wee chat I did with actor Charles Lawson who plays Jim McDonald on Coronation Street.

Charles Dawson is back on the Cobbles - as everyone's favorite badass Jim MacDonald.
Charles Dawson is back on the Cobbles – as everyone’s favorite McBadass Jim McDonald.

Charles was here in Canada as part the of Coronation Street based Tales from The Street, a popular Q and A oriented show that toured across Canada also featuring Julia Howarth (Claire Peacock), Steve Arnold (Ashley Peacock) and Nick Cochrane (Andy McDonald). I spoke to Charles backstage at the University of Waterloo.

I also did Media Relations for this tour. And I happy to say U of W seems to be new home for these Coronation Street Q and A’s.  Because Owen (Ian Pulesten-Davies)  and Gary ( Mikey North)  were at U of W a wee  while back. I ran into them on King Street in downtown Kitchener, and they were both very nice chaps! – Coral FM

Here is my wee chin wag with Charlie Lawson!!!
