Canada is his home. No, really. The entire country. You see, Paul was an Air Force brat, so he literally spent time in various cities right across the country. It was a musical clan. Paul actually played in his father's Big Band at the age of six.
His love of broadcasting took some time to materialize. Paul spent time at a number of jobs over the years. Driving cab. Driving truck. He was even a licensed mechanic!
It was after meeting Joey Gregorash that Paul started working with people in the music industry, and he's developed many connections, and friendships, over the years.
The radio career started in Winnipeg at CFRW in 1976. A stint at CKRC followed that, before he finally landed a gig at Winnipeg's news and talk powerhouse CJOB in 1991. In the summer of 2007 he made the decision to join the family at NL Broadcasting.
Paul and his wife Jayne make their home in Westwold (yep - quite the commute every day!). Quincy (all 70 pounds of him), Spencer (all 8 pounds of him), Fraser (all 5 pounds) and two cats make up the Graham clan. Oh, did we mention all those chickens?
THINGS YOU WON'T HEAR ON THE NEWS Friday May 22/15
GIANT EARTHWORMS RETURN
Giant worms! No, we're not talking about a summer horror flick but the result of spring showers. Rare, giant earthworms are appearing on the Palouse Prairie in Idaho. Worm lover Cass Davis tells the Lewiston Tribune he found three foot-long worms while hiking last weekend. He thinks they're giant Palouse earthworms, which can grow up to a yard long. The worms were believed to have been extinct until a researcher found one a decade ago.
SEX FOR DRUG TESTS
It's a case involving sex and drugs -- but with a twist. Now a lab tech is going to prison. Prosecutors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, say Jayson Bice offered to fix women's drug tests in exchange for sex. He's been sentenced to six years. A jury earlier convicted Bice of extortion and accepting a bribe. He pleaded guilty in April to two other extortion counts.
It's a $28 million dream home. But the residents are just a bunch of big apes. The Houston Zoo is showing off its new gorilla quarters. Seven of the endangered primates now live in the new state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor exhibit. A family of three of those gorillas are transplants from the Bronx Zoo in New York. It took Houston Zoo officials four years of fundraising and construction to make the gorilla home a reality.
WATER USE APP
Some California school kids are turning high-tech entrepreneurs. Five Riverview Elementary School students in Fresno have come up with an idea for an app to monitor water use. The state is in the grip of a record drought. The Fresno Bee reports the kids presented their idea to officials in March. Now, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and businesses including AT&T are kicking in more than 50,000 bucks to develop the app. It will be free and should be available for download by the time school starts in the fall.
MAN OF MANY DEGREES
Bob Walters is graduating -- again. Walters has a string of degrees, including bachelors' of psychology and chemistry, a master's in special education and a law degree. Now, he's getting another one from Northampton Community College. The 64-year-old retired Pennsylvania nurse isn't done with school yet. He's going to start on an MBA. He tells The Easton Express-Times he's cut back on TV, so he has free time to study.
Tennessee is getting a new look. The state is rolling out an updated logo that will replace dozens of symbols used by state agencies. WSMV-TV reports ad agency and marketing company GS&F designed the brand. It features white letters TN on colours patterned on the state flag. The logo will be used by agencies from the Tennessee Highway Patrol to the department of education.
