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 October 31/14
Michael Vick? Geno Smith? New York Jets coach Rex Ryan knows who he wants as quarterback for his limping team. Ryan jokes they're ``gonna go with that Bumgarner guy.'' Madison Bumgarner is the San Francisco Giants ace and World Series MVP. Bumgarner secured the Giants a Game 7 series victory with a five-inning save. He had two series wins as a starter, too. The Jets are 1-and-7 this season, including seven straight losses. Bumgarner likely won't be available for the Jets on Sunday, so Ryan says he's going with his own lefty, Vick.
It's Jack versus George in Tennessee -- in a battle over the legal definition of Tennessee whiskey. The parent company of Jack Daniels supports the law that includes requiring Tennessee whiskey to be made from 51 per cent corn, aged in new charred oak barrels and a minimum of 80 proof. The British corporate parent of George Dickel contends those regs are too restrictive. A state subcommittee heard testimony on the issue yesterday. Lawmakers are expected to consider changes to the Tennessee whiskey law in January.
He's an awfully big newborn -- six feet tall and about 120 pounds. But this big, little guy has an even taller mom. The Dallas Zoo has a new giraffe. The healthy male calf was born Sunday and the birth was announced Wednesday. The calf doesn't have a name yet. The Dallas Zoo's giraffe herd has now grown to a dozen.
New York City has five new residents. They're orphaned coyote pups who have a new home at the Queens Zoo. The animals were rescued in Massachusetts, where they were taken to a wildlife rehabilitator. Now, the coyotes have their own exhibit in Queens. The Wildlife Conservation Society's Queens Zoo specializes in animals from the Americas. The pups are the only coyotes on exhibit there.
Another week. And another ace for pro golfer Danielle Kang. She also gets another car. Kang has made her second hole-in-one in eight days. She aced the 158-yard 17th hole with a 7-iron, in the second round of the LPGA Taiwan Championship. She wins an Audi A6 T2.0. Last week in the first round of the Blue Bay LPGA in China, the 22-year-old American had a hole-in-one with an 8-iron on the 155-yard 17th hole. She won a Buick LaCrosse then. So far, Kang has three aces in LPGA Tour play this season to tie the record.
STATE SONG-WORLD RECORD
Happy birthday Nevada! Today, Nevada celebrates 150 years of statehood. Governor Brian Sandoval got the party started when he joined a cafeteria full of kids, at a Reno elementary school to sing the state song. It's part of a statewide effort to set a world sing-along record. People across Nevada belted out ``Home Means Nevada'' yesterday. Organizers of the sing-along say they believe there's no current record in the category.
