Toronto Tonto Goes For Soda In His Rock 'n Roll Duty

Incredible as it may seem, but one of my high-school idols has joined Toronto's classic rawk station Q107 as afternoon DJ. Kim Mitchell, once and future frontman of oft-revered madcap group Max Webster as well as ace solo artist, has thrown his hat in for the job.

Not that he has to nowadays, since a hat does offer a frontline protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays that might pound down on an unprotected (read: pretty bald) head. But getting a legend from Can-Rawk's early days to host a drive-home show is no mean feat, and may raise the station's profile a little higher in the long run.

Might as well go for soda. Hear's to you, Kim, from one of your biggest fans.
