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 September 19/14
A new poll indicates that lots of folks in Washington, D.C. want their city to be the District of Cannabis. The Washington Post survey finds District of Columbia residents favour legalizing pot by a nearly 2-to-1 margin. The ballot issue is being put to voters in the November election. But even if it passes, Congress could block the pot initiative from taking effect.
None of your business. That's what many Clemson students are telling the administration. Students at the South Carolina university had been required to fill out a sex survey that asked some pretty detailed questions. University officials said the questionnaire was part of an effort to combat sexual discrimination and abuse. The school says the program is being suspended until officials review the content. Students took the sex survey online and had to log in using their Clemson ID and password.
WHEEL OF FORTUNE WIN
A Maryland math teacher now counts to more than a million. Sarah Manchester wins a million bucks plus on ``Wheel of Fortune.'' The episode aired earlier this week. She's just the third person to win more than a mil on the long-running game show. Manchester says she's ``soaking in every minute'' of the big win. She teaches math and is the math team coach at Takoma Park Middle School. She was a student there herself. Manchester tells WJLA-TV she'll use her new fortune for her two children's education and for family travel.
VIDEO GAME MUSEUM
Picasso, no. But Pac-Man, yes -- for a new Texas museum. A community development board in a fast-growing Dallas suburb has approved a $1 million plan to back the nation's first video game museum. The Dallas Morning News reports the Frisco Community Development board voted unanimously last night to approve the deal. The Videogame History Museum would be housed in a renovated local museum. It would be the testing ground for a larger and more permanent home planned in Frisco. The collection includes games, consoles and memorabilia, everything from Pac-Man to a working prototype of Pong.
``My Way'' is Derek Jeter's way, too. Gatorade is running a 90-second ad showing the New York Yankees' captain walking around the Bronx neighbourhood outside the stadium. Jeter is making his final regular-season homestand for the Yankees. Jeter says he picked the Frank Sinatra classic for the soundtrack. He says he always liked the song and it was fitting.
Janet Jones is a vixen and proud of it. The former Miami Heat dancer has created what she calls the Vixen Workout. It's a women's-only exercise program that gives them a safe space to let loose, work up a sweat and even scream if they want. Her program has now expanded nationally, with nearly 2,000 women a week taking classes from New York to L-A. At each class, the women are asked yell things like: ``Yes, I'm fierce. Yes, I'm sexy. Yes, I got this!''
