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 July 24/15 (This feature will return Monday August 10th)
There are somethings more important than a shutout streak. A new baby! Zack Greinke's (GREHN'-keez) streak is on hold while the Los Angeles Dodgers ace and his wife await the birth of their first child. Greinke has pitched 43 and two-thirds scoreless innings. He was set to start tonight in New York against the Mets. But Dodgers manager Don Mattingly says Greinke has returned to L.A. to join his wife, Emily. Mattingly hopes Greinke will be able to pitch this weekend.
COMIC BOOK CONVENTIONS-LAWSUIT
It's Comic Con versus Comic-Con. But don't expect any superheroes in this fight: It's the lawyers who are battling. Organizers of a Utah comic-book convention have been granted a trademark for Salt Lake Comic Con. But San Diego Comic-Con organizers contend that Salt Lake's use of ``comic con'' is federal trademark infringement. The groups are embroiled in a legal battle over the comic con name. Now, the case looks like it's headed for trial after settlement talks broke down earlier this month.
ROGUE DAIRY QUEEN
There's a D-Q that won't be K-O'd by company H-Q. The Dairy Queen in downtown Moorhead, Minnesota, goes its own way. And it has been that way since 1949. The Moorhead D-Q offers toppings that have been phased out. They also have hot food items that aren't on the approved list, like barbecue sandwiches and Polish sausages. Owners Troy and Diane DeLeon say Dairy Queen headquarters would like their franchise to melt away.
Burning T-P is being blamed for a 73-acre wildfire in southwest Idaho. Authorities say a cyclist set his toilet paper on fire after answering a call of nature. According to U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials, the man lost control of the embers in the dry grass. Firefighters contained the flames several hours later. Investigators say the man contacted them and his story matches the evidence found at the scene. Officials aren't releasing the name of the cyclist. But they say he faces a possible fine.
It wasn't Superman to the rescue. Just some ordinary people displaying incredible strength. A woman in Dallas was trapped under a car after her motorcycle crashed. Emergency personnel at first tried using a jack to lift the car. When that failed, they called for backup equipment. But the trapped woman was having trouble breathing. So emergency responders and passers-by muscled-up to lift the car. Yesterday, Dallas police released patrol car video of the July 9 rescue. Police say the motorcycle rider was taken to a hospital. She wasn't seriously hurt.
It's the weenie wiener. The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile vehicle fleet is adding a junior partner. The hot dog giant unveiled the Wiener Rover for National Hot Dog Day yesterday. It's a miniature, remote-controlled version of the iconic Wienermobile. A news release from Oscar Mayer says the Wiener Rover is 23 inches tall and 43 inches long. That's about eight hot dog lengths. The company says the little wiener will be used to give out free hot dogs.
